Harvey Elliott continued his glittering form on loan with Blackburn with a superb goal but Rovers were unable to stage a comeback as they lost 3-2 to Watford at Ewood Park.
The Hornets maintained their promotion charge as they made it four Championship wins in a row.
Liverpool, meanwhile, will be pleased that Elliott continued his good form by scoring in the defeat.
The 17-year-old thumped a superb finish into the roof of the net shortly before half-time.
He now has five goals and nine assists in his 26 Championship outings this term.
You can look at his superb finish, below…
Joao Pedro’s deft lob – his third goal in as many games – put Watford ahead before Ismaila Sarr’s close range tap-in doubled the advantage.
Elliott’s spectacular strike gave Blackburn hope before the break, but the Hornets regained control just after the hour through Ken Sema’s pinpoint finish.
Ben Brereton made it a nervy finish but Watford should have had the game sewn up by that point, with Sarr thwarted by Thomas Kaminski, and one cleared off the line at 3-1.
But they held on and put down a marker to the rest of the promotion hopefuls that they mean business.
