GETTY Emre Can scored the only goal of the game as Liverpool consolidate a top four place

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists he is enjoying the pressure of trying to lead the club to a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Can scored the "best goal" of his career in first-half stoppage time, connecting sweetly with Lucas Leiva's diagonal pass, to move the visitors four points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United after the 1-0 Premier League win.

He said: 'If we perform in the last three games how we can perform then we will win games and we will play in the Champions League. I think we are confident enough.

"Today we hardly conceded any chances and we also had a couple of chances, so overall it was a good performance".

And after the strike stood as the only goal of the game, Can told Sky Sports: "I have never scored a goal like that - maybe when I was younger".

"I saw the space and then I ran behind then".

Talking about the winning goal, Can said that it was the best goal he has scored in his career.

Yet though Lallana came close to scoring on the break, and substitute Daniel Sturridge forced a wonderful late save from Gomes in the dying seconds, Liverpool's failure to close out the game nearly cost them.

Liverpool picked up all three points at Vicarage Road last night, but the German midfielder's spectacular goal of the season contender stole all the headlines - even the Watford faithful had to pinch themselves back to reality. But as ever, Liverpool like to make things hard for themselves, so we can only hold out breath and wait to see how the game turns out. Aside from hitting the crossbar with Prodl, there were two mistakes from the referee when he gave offsides against Deeney and Okaka in good positions. We have to keep going how we are. Liverpool fans feared the worse when the Brazilian was forced off following a collision with Watford defender Adrian Mariappa after 10 minutes.

Walter Mazzarri's side remain on 40 points in the table, eight points clear of the bottom three, and the Italian pointed a finger at the officials as his side slipped to defeat.

And Klopp is excited by the challenge they face in the final few weeks of the campaign. "But sometimes you have to learn how to play against these sorts of teams".
