Watford were well-beaten by Liverpool with a passive display on Claudio Ranieri's first game in charge.

Here's how we rated their individual efforts.


Ben Foster - 6.5

Made some good stops and kept the score down as best he could. Not a lot he could've done for any of the goals.


Kiko Femenia - 4

Lost Sadio Mane on numerous occasions - offered nothing going forward. 


William Troost-Ekong - 3

Really struggled and was often tied up in knots by the front three.


Craig Cathcart - 3

Simply not quick enough to deal with the opponents. Needs to be better.


Danny Rose - 3

Had absolutely no answer for Salah. Was all over the place.


Adam Masina - 2

A thoughtless display. Subbed at half time after providing little defensive cover and nothing going forward. 


Juraj Kucka - 5

At least tried to do his job but had no outlet and constantly found himself on the back foot as a result.


Moussa Sissoko - 6.5

Arguably Watford's best player, other than Foster. Battled quite well, but was bereft of support.


Ismaila Sarr - 5

Made a bit of an effort towards the end of the game, but it was too little too late. 


Emmanuel Dennis - 4

Some poor decision making - could have set up a few attacks had he been more sharp-minded but delayed too much.


Cucho Hernandez - 5

Looked lively towards the end of the game but couldn't find a consolation.



Tom Cleverley - 4

Offered nothing to change the game after joining at half time. 


Jeremy Ngakia - 5.5

Was a slightly positive addition to the match, but by then the game had gone.


Joao Pedro - 6

Looks to have bulked up a bit and added a bit of purpose to Watford's attack, but there was no chance of it being turned around by that point.
