Klopp’s Liverpool is raring to go
LONDON: Premier League strugglers Watford rescued a dramatic 1-1 draw against Leicester thanks to Craig Dawson’s last-gasp overhead kick at the start of a weekend which could see Liverpool move within one win of the title. In the first full weekend of English top-flight matches since the Covid-19 shutdown in March, Watford’s hopes of avoiding relegation looked set to be dented by Ben Chilwell’s superb 90th minute strike. But in a remarkable conclusion, Hornets centre-back Dawson launched himself into an acrobatic effort moments later to claim his first goal for the club.
On Sunday, Liverpool will play for the first time since the topflight hiatus when the title chasers make the short trip to Merseyside rivals Everton. Jurgen Klopp’s side need two wins from their remaining nine games to end their 30-year wait to be crowned English champs.
