Liverpool go top thanks to perfect 10-game Premier League run

Liverpool (AFP) – Liverpool moved top of the Premier League for the first time this year as Diogo Jota's header and a late Fabinho penalty saw off Watford 2-0

Jurgen Klopp's men edge two points ahead of Manchester City, who travel to Burnley later on Saturday, having trailed the English champions by 14 points just over two months ago

The visit of the Hornets kicked off a huge month for the Reds as they remain in the hunt for a historic quadruple of trophies

A potential title decider away to City next weekend falls in between both legs of a Champions League quarter-final against Benfica before another meeting with City in the FA Cup semi-finals

Klopp could afford the luxury of leaving Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane on the bench after their exertions on international duty, alongside Trent Alexander-Arnold on his return from injury

However, the hosts did not have the easy afternoon Klopp would have hoped for with tougher tests to come. Watford are in desperate need of points for their own battle to beat relegation

Ismaila Sarr started alongside Mane as Senegal beat Mohamed Salah's Egypt on penalties for the second time in less than two months to add World Cup qualification to winning the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday

Sarr was included from the start by Roy Hodgson and was a major threat as he nearly caught Alisson Becker off his line early on
