EPL By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 27/02/2019

Liverpool maintained top spot in the Premier League as they got back to winning ways with a 5-0 thumping of Watford on Wednesday evening.

Jurgen Klopp made two changes to the XI that was held to a 0-0 draw at Manchester United on Sunday, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Origi taking the places of Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino.

However, the hosts answered those in fine style at Anfield, finding their scoring touch again through braces from Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane and a further goal from Divock Origi.

Manchester CIty’s hard-fought win over West Ham United ensured the night wasn’t perfect for Liverpool, but there was plenty to encourage fans ahead of a Merseyside derby trip to Everton this weekend.
