Liverpool enter the 2017/18 Premier League season with renewed hope but supporters were left with a familiar feeling after Watford’s opening goal against the Reds at Vicarage Road.
Jurgen Klopp’s side went behind after just ten minutes against the Hornets when Stefano Okaka met Jose Holebas’ in-swinging corner.
It was the first set piece that the Reds had faced this season and the shoddy defending hardly filled supporters with confidence.
Liverpool were often undone from set pieces last season and new boy Mohamed Salah was clearly unimpressed with the defending he witnessed.
The Egyptian was seen throwing his hands in the air and shouting at team-mates in the aftermath of Okaka’s goal.
Few Liverpool supporters could argue with Salah’s reaction, having become all too familiar with their side’s defending from set pieces in the last few years.
Sadio Mane got the Reds level on the half-hour mark but question marks about the side’s defending were being aired again when Okaka put Watford back in front just moments later.
