Liverpool continued their impressive run in the English Premier League on Sunday with a 6-1 annihilation of Watford who paraded Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo for the whole game.
A brace from Saido Mane and strikes from Georginio Wijnaldum, Roberto Firimino, Emre Can and Philip Coutinho sealed the Reds’ eighth win of the campaign.
The win for the Reds also deposed Chelsea at the top of the table.
Ighalo was making his tenth start of the campaign.
The game also saw the 27-year-old Nigerian international extend his goal drought to six games in the EPL as he prepares for the Super Eagles’ crucial World Cup game against Algeria.
The Reds took the lead after 27 minutes through Saido Mane and goal was doubled three minutes later by Phillip Coutinho.
Emre Can made it 3-0 three minutes before the interval.
At the restart of the second half Roberto Firimino made it 4-0 in the 57th minute before Mane bagged his brace on the hour mark.
Daryl Janmaat scored a consolatory goal for the Hornets in the 75th minute.
But Georginio Wijnaldum ensured Jurgen Klopp’s side ended the game with 6-1.
