Liverpool has lost. The unthinkable has happened. The Reds' unbeaten streak finished at 44 games, after an honestly humiliating 3-0 loss to relegation battling Watford on Saturday night. Liverpool's unbeaten streak was 422 days long and also the second-longest in English top-flight history. They were likewise the 2nd team to go unbeaten in the initial 27 games of a season. Be that as it may, in the midst of the considerable number of plaudits, one thing turned out to be clear: a 10-year-old Manchester United fan's letter might have been the reason behind the mauling.

The young fan had mailed Jurgen Klopp telling him to make Liverpool lose in the matches left and it had made headlines as Klopp personally replied to the rival. Since then Liverpool has lost two games, one in UCL and another in the league thus making them unworthy for the tag of PL invincible. The only time in the season when Arsenal fans could celebrate. They were just one win away from setting the new record for most consecutive league wins going back long enough to January 2019. Tough luck, Liverpool.

On the other hand, Watford took a giant leap toward EPL survival on Leap Year Day. A double goal salvo from Senegal international Ismaila Sarr and a calm finish from Troy Deeney helped Watford secure a big win in its bleak hopes of remaining in the Premier League. Safe at this moment with the help of Goal Difference, they face Crystal Palace away this coming weekend. The setback will of course not stop Jurgen Klopp's men going on to lift their first English title for 30 years as they remain 22 points ahead of their nearest pursuers City, who have a game in hand.

Klopp had no complaints. "They did exactly what they wanted to do, we did not. That's how football works," shrugged the German. "You have to accept it, it's not so easy, but we were not good enough tonight." "If you win good, if you lose, try to do it in the right manner and do it like a man," Klopp said.

For the home side, "Our best performance by a country mile. No-one gave us a prayer or a hope for this one," said Deeney, who praised man-of-the-match Sarr as an "unbelievable player, unbelievable talent."

With the tag of invincibles, being left back at Vicarage Road, Klopp’s men move forward with ‘rage’ to claim the league as fast as they can. They might win every match from here, record the greatest total in points in English football history, but they wouldn’t go a season without losing. Arsenal remains alone, in the modern era. That still means something. That should never be disparaged.
