Watford 3-0 Liverpool: Who was the Disaster of the Match?

A brace from Ismailia Sarr and a Troy Deeney strike condemned the at times hapless Reds to not only a defeat but also scuppered their chances of breaking an English league record with a 19th consecutive league victory. With the wind buffeting around, build up play was rendered difficult for the reds, whose approach play was built on short passes. But …
