Liverpool’s Diogo Jota joins exclusive club after Watford opener


Liverpool forward Diogo Jota joined an exclusive club during the Reds' match with Watford on Saturday afternoon.

Liverpool are currently locked in Premier League action with Watford.

As for Watford, they began gameweek 30 sat 18th in the Premier League and three points from safety.

Watford also have a pretty dismal defensive record and it was expected that Liverpool would dominate them.
