Liverpool knocked off Watford, 1-0, at Vicarage Road behind after Emre Can scored a Goal Of The Year candidate.
Can gave the Reds the lead on the stroke of halftime after the 22-year-old finished off a spectacular bicycle kick from a Lucas Leiva lobbed cross.
Liverpool nearly caught the Hornets for the opener just minutes prior as Adam Lallana struck the crossbar in the 41st minute.
The hosts were forced to make a change early on when Miguel Britos went off injured in the 17th minute and Christian Kabasele replaced the defender.
With three matches remaining, the Reds will hope to hold onto a UEFA Champions League position when they face Southampton, West Ham and Middlesbrough. Meanwhile, the Hornets finish up with a brutal fixture list that includes Leicester, Everton, Chelsea and Manchester City.Follow @MattReedFutbol
