Top of the shots! Liverpool set new record in Watford mauling

Jurgen Klopp's side hit the target more times than has ever been recorded before by Opta in their impressive 6-1 victory at Anfield on Sunday


Liverpool produced another devastating attacking performance to inflict a 6-1 hammering on Watford - and set a new statistical record in the process.

Jugren Klopp's side have been as entertaining as any team in England so far this season, and again showed their offensive prowess with a dominant display against the Hornets.

In truth, their five-goal margin of victory could have been even greater given the amount of chances they created, which is reflected in Opta's match stats.

In the 13 years that Opta have been collecting data on Premier League matches, Liverpool's tally of 17 shots on target is the most a team has ever managed.
