Liverpool got their Premier League title aspirations back on track in midweek.
The Reds saw their lead at the top of the table cut to just one point last weekend after drawing 0-0 with fierce rivals Manchester United.
With Manchester City in such good form, Jurgen Klopp's side knew they need a win against Watford on Wednesday to preserve their slim lead.
And they managed to get all three points in emphatic fashion.
Sadio Mane scored a first half brace to give Liverpool a comfortable lead going into half-time, before Divock Origi and two from Virgil van Dijk gave them a resounding 5-0 victory.

Liverpool face a tough game on the weekend as they look to retain their slender lead over Man City.
The Reds travel to Goodison Park to contest the second Merseyside derby of the season.
Last weekend, Klopp described the tie as like a 'World Cup final' for Everton.
Marco Silva was asked about the comments today, and he could not help firing back at the German manager.
The first game between the two sides this season was won by a last gasp winner by Origi.
Klopp famously ran on the pitch and celebrated with Alisson Becker, and Silva responded by saying Liverpool celebrated their 'lucky' winner like it was a World Cup final.
"For us? It’s a special match for the city and the fans," he said when pressed about Klopp's comments, per the Liverpool Echo.
“I didn’t see a big difference. I managed my last derby in December.
“What I felt was a special match for both teams. They celebrated that lucky goal. Like us and for them they celebrated like a World Cup Final.”
It seems Silva has still not forgotten the final moments of that game at Anfield.
If you can't remember Klopp's celebration that day, watch it below:
Silva then went on to say it will be 'very good' if they perform like they did in the first Merseyside derby of the season.
“If we can perform at the level we did [against Liverpool] in December it will be very good," he continued.
“That means we will be very close to winning the match.
“It’s a different period of the season but we need to be ourselves.
“Derbies are a really tough match. Normally it’s not fantastic football from both teams but we have to be really competitive.
“We have to do our best and give 100%. If we can do more it’ll be great.”
