Both found all-world defender Virgil van Dijk out to lunch, an uncharacteristic break from his outstanding nature.

Moments after Liverpool failed to capitalize on a mess in the Watford box, the Hornets took the lead.

Sarr darted in front of Andy Robertson after Abdoulaye Doucoure got the better of a sleepy Virgil van Dijk.

It would only stay 1-0 for about a half-dozen more minutes.

Troy Deeney saved a ball from going out of bounds and it squirted past a sleepy Van Dijk.

Sarr was quick to recognize the opportunity and chipped the ball over an unrushing Alisson Becker for 2-0.
