Germany midfielder Emre Can netted one of the goals of the season as Liverpool beat a poor Watford to capitalise on favourable results in the race for the UEFA Champions League.
The Reds playmaker met Lucas Leiva's delivery with a emphatic bicycle kick which flew into the top corner.
The Walter Mazzarri side [Watfod] rarely threatened, but almost snatched a point when defender Sebastian Prodl smashed against the bar in injury time.
The Jurgen Klopp’s side moved four points clear of Jose Mourinho side Manchester United in fifth, while Watford remain 13th.
Liverpool know they will secure a top-four English Premier League finish - and a return to the UEFA Champions League for the first time in three seasons - by winning their final three matches
