The international break appears not to have slowed Liverpool down in their quest to win their second Premier League title.
The Reds, led by world-class manager Jurgen Klopp, are taking on Watford in a fixture that had the potential to be a banana skin.
However, despite starting slowly, or at least a long-way short of their usual selves, Liverpool has restored the natural order of things after taking the lead just shy of the game’s 25-minute mark.
Although right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has started the game on the bench, fans would never have known after stand-in defender Joe Gomez popped up with a delightful cross that invited striker Diogo Jota to nod home a goal that is the Portugal international’s 20th of the season.
A Liverpool right-back delivering an inch-perfect cross to produce a goal? Sounds familiar, but this time it’s Joe Gomez ?
