Watford 3-3 Liverpool:5 key talking points as Reds lose lead


1. Liverpool still can't defend

Jurgen Klopp continues to overlook his side's most glaring issue: they cannot defend and while Virgil van Dijk would help, it's an issue best solved by coaching, which appears to be beyond the German.

Zonal marking at corners can work, but why is Roberto Firmino installed in the most dangerous area? The Brazilian failed to anticipate Stefano Okaka, perhaps Watford's biggest weapon at set-pieces, who powered home the opener from Jose Holebas' beautifully-delivered corner.

More confusion occurred in stoppage time as Richarlison was allowed to drive at goal and nobody picked up Miguel Britos on the goal line who equalised late on.

It's an area that needs addressing urgently and while help can be acquired in the market, Klopp must dedicate more time to it on the training ground if the Reds are to make top four again.
