Watford defender scores stoppage-time equaliser in 3-3 draw after Salah had led Reds fightback

Miguel Britos's stoppage-time equaliser for Watford denied Liverpool an opening-day win in a 3-3 draw.

Stefano Okaka had headed in Jose Holebas’s corner to give Watford an eighth-minute lead at Vicarage Road.

But Sadio Mane levelled before the half-hour after a neat one-two with Emre Can.

Less than three minutes later Watford led again through Abdoulaye Doucoure after Liverpool could not clear.

Ten minutes into the second half and Liverpool were level, when Roberto Firmino converted a penalty after Mohamed Salah was fouled by Heurelho Gomes.

Two minutes later, Salah put Liverpool ahead, bundling in Firmino’s chip.

Despite injuries to three players, Watford pulled level as Britos headed in after Simon Mignolet could not keep out Richarlison's shot.
