Jurgen Klopp urged Liverpool to “enjoy the ride” after they swept aside Watford 5-0 to stay a point clear at the top of the Premier League.
Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk both scored twice as the Reds recorded their biggest win of the season following three draws in their last four matches.
Divock Origi, making his second Premier League start of the season, also netted in a comfortable victory.

- As it happened
“We drew against Manchester United and Bayern Munich. I think most teams would wish they had these problems,” said Klopp, whose side face Merseyside rivals Everton on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
“But you have to be really stable, you cannot always be sensational. Tonight we were stable and sensational.
“We have 69 points. We could have had 75 that’s possible. But we are playing a really good season. Let’s enjoy the ride and see as far as it takes us.”
Liverpool’s title bid has stuttered in recent weeks as they have drawn against Leicester, West Ham and Manchester United.
But they were back to their attacking best against Watford, with Klopp calling the display a “commercial for powerful football”.

“It was a fantastic night. Brilliant goals, outstanding atmosphere, sensational moments of football, good set-pieces, football intelligence, big passion and desire, it was a good performance.
“I loved the game a lot. We want to see that more often. The boys have showed things like this all season but tonight it was for different reasons very important.
“We try every week to play like this but now we go to Everton. They are not there to give us presents. We will try it again and hopefully it works out.”
