Liverpool’s good start
The result at Watford wasn’t great, however Liverpool remain unbeaten at the start of the season.
After their 3-3 draw against the Hornets, Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at Anfield on Saturday.
The win over the Eagles followed a midweek Champions League victory over Hoffenheim.
Liverpool welcome the Bundesliga side to Merseyside this week in the return tie, before Arsenal come to visit next weekend in the Premier League.
Poor Adam Lallana
Jurgen Klopp has been missing one of his key players at the start of the campaign: Adam Lallana.
The Englishman suffered a thigh injury during the clubs clash with Atletico Madrid in the final of the Audi Cup pre-season tournament.
Lallana was originally expected to be sidelined for just a couple of weeks. That turned into a couple of months. And the Sunday Times this weekend have reported the bad news that Lallana may now be out until December.
#LFC midfielder could be missing for longer than originally anticipated. The Times report that Lallana "is likely to be out until December."

A few weeks ago Lallana took to social media to express how he’s “gutted” with his latest injury.
Impact on Coutinho?
With Lallana’s setback, will that up the pressure on Liverpool to hold onto Philippe Coutinho?
So far Liverpool have rejected three offers from Barca for the Brazilian. The most recent bid was in the region of £114 million.
Coutinho recently submitted a formal transfer request to try and convince the club to sell him so that he could make his move to Barcelona.
The Sunday Express believe Barcelona are willing to up their offer to £130 million.
Moreover, Spanish paper Sport report that Barcelona intend to speak to the Red about Coutinho at this week’s Champions League draw in Monaco.
