Liverpool produced arguably their best performance of the season so far against Watford at the weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s men blew away their opponents, scoring three goals either side of half-time to secure an emphatic 6-1 victory.

But for one Liverpool fan, a guy called Isaac, Sadio Mane’s opener cost him £40.

For those who haven’t seen the goal, Mane scored moments after a short corner by Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian swung a cross into the box and his teammate brilliantly flicked his header past Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes.

Two months earlier, Isaac posted the following on Reddit

And true to his word, Isaac paid up after the short corner routine paid off for the Reds.

Liverpool fans react to short corner success

And here’s how Liverpool fans reacted after watching their team score from a short corner…

Liverpool sit top of the league

Mane scored again in the second half while the other goals were netted by Coutinho, Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Liverpool climbed to the top of the Premier League table, having secured eight wins from their opening 11 matches, and now boast a healthy +16 goal difference.

Klopp plays down title talk

However, Klopp was quick to play down suggestions that Liverpool could win the title after the match.

"We've started collecting points but we need to go on with this. Then we will see where we can end," Klopp was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"I know in the past a lot of things happened here and the story two, three years ago when it was really close, but this is not the team two or three years ago.

"This is not the team 25 years ago. We're completely new. We stay cool. It's the best position I can imagine but nothing else has happened."

Liverpool's upcoming fixtures

Liverpool will bid to maintain their lead at the top of the table when they face Southampton in their first match after the international break.

They then go head-to-head with Sunderland at home on November 26 - a match which, on paper, looks a banker for the Reds - before facing Bournemouth (A), West Ham (H), Middlesbrough (A) and Everton (A) before Christmas.
