After Liverpool's stalemate at Old Trafford, The Sun claimed that Klopp "went ballistic" after Henderson appeared to ignore his manager's handshake after being substituted.

'It's always about showing reactions but not reactions of the things we are talking about.

Tahith Chong was also left disappointed as he didn't make his league debut for Manchester United in their 3-1 win at Crystal Palace, who had Patrick van Aanholt in their line-up and Jairo Riedewald on the bench.

Virgil van Dijk of Liverpool celebrates after scoring his team's fifth goal during the Premier League match between Liverpool FC and Watford FC at Anfield on February 27, 2019 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

With only Tottenham and Chelsea to play from within the top six - both at home - the signs are pointing to a Liverpool title if they can treat the rest of their opponents with the same clinical fashion with which they dealt with Watford. The boys were always stable and tonight we were stable and really fluent offensively, so it's good - a very good example of how football should look.

And Guinea global Keita has been very impressed by what he has seen from Fabinho in recent weeks. 'It was a back heel I heard but I didn't see it.

Watford's one first-half chance was bundled wide by Troy Deeney from former Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu's cross. You will never win a game without defending or focused only on defending.

'It was clear he would help us in the build-up as he is that type of footballer but we needed him in the box as well. Being there then twice in really good positions - at least twice, and for sure more often. The boys who came on controlled the game.

It's massive when the big boy is jumping that high and finishing off like that. "Let's enjoy it and enjoy the ride as far as it takes us". We dominated and played well. But the performance? I'm not surprised.
