Ismaila Sarr said he was disappointed not to bag a hat-trick in Watford's 3-0 victory over Liverpool last night.

The Senegalese winger made a massive impact on his return to the first-team, scoring twice and setting up Troy Deeney for the third in an unforgettable win over the Premier League leaders.

In an interview for the club website after the game, Sarr lamented not converting a third chance to score, but insisted he would try hard to make sure that will not be the case next time.

“I'm really, really disappointed because I really wanted the ball today,” he said.

“I had a big chance to get the hat-trick. I'll try for the next game to get the points for my team.”

The 21-year-old was even happier with the win because he managed to get revenge on his Senegal team-mate Sadio Mane, who urged Watford to look after their record signing following their 2-0 defeat at Anfield earlier this season.

Sarr was also pleased with how his team-mates played in the game and said he would not have been able to score twice had they not contributed as well.

“I'm really happy because I won against him,” he said.

“We lost away and wanted to win at home. We did it with big character today.

“I'm just here to work hard for the team. I did my job and my two goals were because of the team. Today was just job done. For the first, I felt someone was going to cross it so I went to the first post. For the second, I had the experience to wait and chip the keeper.”
