"Being the fastest player to score 50 goals for the club is something great". I know people miss one or two situations from last season but we have these games'.
With 52 goals and 20 assists in 69 games, his goal-scoring prowess has naturally attracted the interest of FC Barcelona and Real Madrid and Aguirre believe the Pharoes attacking talisman could be tempted to leave the club.
Victory at Vicarage Road means Liverpool have collected more points at this stage of a Premier League season than ever before, eclipsing a previous record of 32 points in 2008-09, much to Klopp's delight. We all know the season is not finished and it doesn't bring anything, but if somebody wants to have this record in the future they must beat this team. One session, with the specific demands of Watford's set-pieces; you saw what they did with routines and how they play around, where they chip the balls and where they block the guys. It's just a nice moment.
Henderson was given his marching orders late on in Liverpool's 3-0 win at Watford on Saturday, a result that kept the Reds within two points of Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Liverpool took a while to settle in the game, and their first big chance came after Xherdan Shaqiri's ball into the box nearly found Roberto Firmino. "In similar games a year ago we were not that convincing but we controlled [this match]". It wasn't that clear we controlled the game.
"In the second half, they scored and I think the match was closer than the scoreline but we accept and continue".
"To extend a contract is more than a signing, it is a statement".
"It's not that I say to him: 'Good morning Sadio, you are world class, ' but it is obvious sometimes that he is not aware of that", Klopp said at a news conference. "I came here and was very happy".
"I really think this group of players, they deserve it". He radiates joy and I think this is reflected in his performances and impact on the pitch.
