The Reds shot themselves up to the top of the Premier League summit leaving Chelsea with all to do to reclaim first place this weekend.
The visitors were precise about their dealing in the match as they readily dispatched Watford at home without an iota of mercy.
It is a promising showing from Liverpool's point of view while the host has got all to do to ensure a credible transition to form since the exit of former manager Xisco Munoz at the club.
On this note, GoalBalllive.com evaluates the three (3) significant points as Liverpool thumps Watford at home.
LIVERPOOL REIGN SUPREME
The Anfield side was determined to leave no stone unturned as they travelled to lock horns against the Hornets for this weekend's fixtures.
And they did so in superb fashion thus beating Watford with five goals in front of their home fans.
It was a glimpse of what Liverpool could do going forward this term just like they did the same by triumphing 0-5 in the UEFA Champions League game against FC Porto.
HAT-TRICK FOR ROBERTO FIRMINO
Following Liverpool's reliance on the African pair of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, the Brazilian forward Firmino used the platform to underline his Liverpool relevance in the season.
While he's working on a steady stake to keep his place in the team due to the presence of promising fellow striker Diogo Jota.
Let's wait and see if he could keep up with this kind of display against the Hornets. Even as much awaits the Reds in the current campaign.
RANIERI QUESTIONED BY LIVERPOOL
The Reds were astute in the way they bruised aside Claudio Ranieri's men at home this weekend.
It was a sore afternoon of football for the Italian manager Claudio Ranieri who had the talent of Ismailia Sarr and Emmanuel Dennis to call upon.
Despite the quality of the two amazing attackers in his squad, he couldn't make much from the Liverpool contest.
This will pose further questions to Ranieri's ability to thinker the side to greater heights as his managerial test has already begun in earnest.
