The hopes of remaining unbeaten this season is gone for Liverpool as they were beaten 3-0 to Watford at Vicarage Road.
Watford scored all the goal in the second half as Ismaila Sarr scored twice with captain Troy Deeney added the third goal of the game.
That defeat ended Liverpool 18 game winning streak and the 44 game unbeaten run, the second longest unbeaten run in the history of Premier League.
However, this is not going to halt Liverpool’s title charge as they are 22 points clear at the top of the table.
“They did exactly what they wanted to do, we did not. That’s how football works,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said.
“You have to accept it, it’s not so easy, but it’s the proof we were not good enough. It’s always very difficult.
“If you win good, if you lose, try to do it in the right manner and do it like a man.”
Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk believes they have to keep going despite the defeat.
“Credit to Watford, they played well, a lot of fight, very disciplined and scored three goals – that’s the reality, we couldn’t find a way through. It was difficult and we have to do better.
“The record and the talk of the records is all media, we just try to win every game.
“We will focus on the next game, the cup game, and we try to win there. We have to stay humble and work harder next game.”
