Arsenal ‘Invincible’ star and Watford coach Stack taunts Liverpool after win

Watford's Graham Stack twisted the knife on Liverpool after their surprise 3-0 win over them in the Premier League .

The goalkeeper coach was also on Arsenal's books during the season they went unbeaten in 2002/03.

Nigel Pearson's men put in a herculean effort to down the Reds 3-0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

It was the first time Liverpool had tasted defeat in the Premier League this season to end their hopes of copying Arsenal's 'Invincibles'.

And Hornets coach Stack could not resist a sly jibe, eluding to his Gunners past.

He tweeted: "A great performance, 3 points, a clean sheet and I’m still Invincible. Thanks lads! Never in doubt!!"

It comes after Ismaila Sarr inspired Watford to a fine victory to boost their hopes of staying in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old scored twice and set up another to put the Hertfordshire club 17th on goal difference.

However, Pearson was keen to downplay the significance of the win and told his players there is much left to do.

"It is just one game," he said. "We have 10 left and we have to try and emulate today in terms of performance.

"The results have not been what we wanted. We found it difficult to find ways of winning games.

"We coped exceptionally well today and that is the most important for me."

Jurgen Klopp’s men still remain on course to win the Premier League at a canter, which would be their first since the format was introduced in 1992.

They sit 22 points clear of Manchester City with 10 games to go.

Nevertheless, the Reds boss was not pleased with the manner in which his side were beaten.

"They did exactly what they wanted to do, we did not. That's how football works,” he said.

"You have to accept it, it's not so easy, but it's the proof we were not good enough. It's always very difficult.

"If you win good, if you lose, try to do it in the right manner and do it like a man."
