Is this the worst miss of the season? £30m Watford man Ismaila Sarr somehow spurns opportunity to put his side level against Liverpool
- Liverpool took the lead against Watford with a 38th minute Mohamed Salah goal
- Watford could have leveled just three minutes later though through Ismaila Sarr
- Sarr somehow though spurned a huge chance in one of the misses of the season
- Jurgen Klopp’s side punished the Hornets with a second Salah goal late on
The Hornets put in a spirited performance in their first game under new manager Nigel Pearson against the undefeated league leaders.
However like many other teams, the 20th placed team were punished by a clinical Liverpool counter attack that Mohamed Salah finished off on the 38th minute.
Ismaila Sarr somehow spurned a chance to put Watford level against league leaders Liverpool
But just three minutes later Watford had the perfect opportunity to immediately level the scoreline at Anfield.
Gerard Deulofeu’s cross was parried away by goalkeeper Alisson right into the feet of Sarr, who only had to make any form of reasonable contact to turn the ball home.
However what followed will go down as one of the misses of the season to date.

The ball fell to Sarr’s feet and the Senegalese winger wildly swung his right boot at the ball
But Sarr fluffed his chance barely making any form of contact with the ball falling behind him
Sarr could only look down at the floor ruing a huge opportunity to put Watford level at Anfield
As the ball fell to Sarr, the Senegalese winger swiped at the ball and fluffed a huge opportunity to put his side level.
He miscued his kick and could only watch on as the ball rolled behind him, ruing a huge opportunity to score what would have been his first Premier League goal.
Despite this the Watford players didn’t put their heads down and continued to attack Liverpool in the second half.
The Hornets put on one of their best performances of the season to date, but were punished late into the second half by a cheeky Mo Salah flick to make it 2-0.
But Nigel Pearson will be left to wonder what could have been if Sarr had leveled the score just before half time.
