Liverpool concede from the first corner of the new Premier League season

Anyone know of a good centre-half?

IT TOOK JUST eight minutes and one corner of the new Premier League season for Liverpool’s set-piece frailties to rear their ugly head again.

Stefano Okako headed Watford into an early lead in the lunchtime kick-off at Vicarage Road.

The Italian was allowed to jump unopposed to power Jose Holebas’s corner past Simon Mignolet in the Liverpool goal with just 7:48.

That sound you hear, that’s Southampton adding another few million onto Virgil van Dijk’s price tag.
