LIVERPOOL are without their star playmaker Philippe Coutinho but Jurgen Klopp pulled off one surprise selection to face Watford from 12:30pm
Alberto Moreno started ahead of James Milner at left back to travel away to start the new season.

Last time these two sides met at Vicarage Road, Emre Can pulled out a goal of the season contender, although the Hornets have pulled off some big results against Liverpool in recent years.

Watford started off brightly with a goal from Okaka attacking a crossed corner before Mane equalized. Watford had some sleek passes that pushed them up the field and a deflection off Matip put the ball in tap-in territory for Doucoure who put Watford back in the lead. 

Goalkeeper Gomes tripped New Signing Salah in the penalty box that gave the Reds another opportunity to level the match and they got the leveler from Firmino. 2 mins later, Salah latched on a chip from Firmino to make it 3-2 to the good for Liverpool. 

A defensive error, a hit against the bar and a Mignolet gave Watford an equalizer as Britos banged in the ball into the net at close range.

Sports: PSG Pay A Whopping €222 million To Barcelona For Neymar | See Shocking Details

PSG PAY A WHOPPING €222 MILLION TO BARCELONA FOR NEYMAR
PSG PAY A WHOPPING €222 MILLION TO BARCELONA FOR NEYMAR
The saga comes to an end and for many soccer fans and pundits, it’s been a roller coaster of rumors, breaking and record breaking transfer news. 

After many talks, Barcelona has accepted a whopping �222 million (N95billion) from Paris Saint-Germain for Brazilian international, Neymar.

 

According to Goal.com, Barcelona has accepted the payment of Neymar’s €222 million (£198m/N95 billion) release clause as the Brazil forward’s move to Paris Saint-Germain moves closer.

 

This was issued in a statement on Thursday by Barcelona and confirmed by his representatives who visited in person to pay the figure.

 

The club released an official statement on Thursday that read: “On Thursday afternoon Neymar Jr’s legal representatives visited in person the club’s offices and made the payment of €222m in the player’s name with regards to the unilateral termination of the contract that united both parties.

“As such, the club will pass on to UEFA the details of the above operation so that they can determine the disciplinary responsibilities that may arise from this case.”

 

Earlier on Thursday, La Liga refused to accept an attempt to pay the release clause at their offices in Madrid, leading to France’s Ligue de Football Professionnel to call on the Spanish body to “abide by the rules of FIFA and its responsibilities”.

Neymar’s move to PSG now looks set to be completed imminently, with the Ligue 1 side reportedly ready to unveil the Brazilian on Friday.

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu has previously suggested PSG’s move for Neymar would not be possible without contravening UEFAs’ Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations. 

It is understood UEFA will investigate the deal if it suspects that there has been any breach of FFP rules. PSG congratulated on Neymar swoop

La Liga president Javier Tebas has also threatened to report PSG to UEFA over the deal, which will set a new world-record transfer, smashing the previous record set by Paul Pogba’s €105m move from Juventus to Manchester United a year ago.
