Liverpool’s victory over Watford this afternoon saw Jordan Henderson join a trio of Reds legends in an exclusive club.
Salah makes the difference
Jurgen Klopp’s men welcomed the struggling Hornets to Anfield earlier today, for their latest Premier League outing.
The European champions headed into proceedings brimming with confidence, on the back of 7 straight league wins, a run which had seen them open up a hefty 8-point lead over 2nd-placed Leicester atop the English top-flight.
Liverpool also booked their spot in the last-16 of the Champions League on Tuesday night, with a crucial 2-0 victory over RB Salzburg.
As such, ahead of kick-off this afternoon, the Merseysiders were understandably viewed as overwhelming favourites to secure all 3 points, with opponents Watford having sat dead bottom of the Premier League table.
And, when all was said and done, notch yet another win was precisely what the hosts managed.
Despite having been some way off their best, a double from Mo Salah eventually guided Liverpool to all 3 points.

Henderson’s impressive record
Liverpool’s latest win, meanwhile, also proved a significant one in the career of one of the club’s star men.
The individual in question is Jordan Henderson.
After being handed a start by Jurgen Klopp this afternoon, English international Henderson joined an exclusive club, alongside a trio of Reds legends.
Liverpool’s victory came as the 29-year-old’s 150th for the Anfield giants in the Premier League.
The only players to have previously reached this milestone in the Premier League era for Liverpool are Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Sami Hyypia.
He’s now moved into some pretty lofty company..https://t.co/n6Z0PKWHba
