WATFORD -- Three quick thoughts on Watford 3-3 Liverpool at Vicarage Road in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon:

1. New season, same old Liverpool?

Liverpool's preparations for the new season were rocked by Philippe Coutinho's transfer request on the eve of their Premier League campaign, but the Brazilian's absence had nothing to do with throwing away a lead at Watford in the dying seconds.

Marco Silva and Watford an odd pairing of ambition and instability

When Marco Silva arrived at Hull City last season, they were bottom of the Premier League. They'd won one of their previous 18 games, had a disaffected fan base and an overburdened squad who started the season featuring just 13 fit senior players. Oh, and two of the best in that group, Jake Livermore and Robert Snodgrass, were promptly sold.

Hull ultimately went down, but the very fact they had a chance of staying up proved what an exceptional job Silva did. And why, after leaving at the end of...

It's a month until the Premier League kicks off, with Arsenal vs. Leicester on Aug. 11. The summer so far has been dominated by huge transfer moves for Romelu Lukaku and Alexandre Lacazette, and speculation over Alexis Sanchez, Virgil van Dijk and Alvaro Morata's futures.

Many of the big Premier League clubs have been frustrated in their dealings, but there have been more than a few deals completed.

As of Monday evening, clubs have spent £571 million. Here's some of the completed deals you...

Marco Silva is Watford's ninth coach in five years under the Pozzo family ownership of the club.

Here's five things the former Hull City boss must sort in order to buck the trend of short term appointments at Vicarage Road ...

1. Build a relationship with supporters

Watford supporters feel like they went an entire season without any meaningful contact from their head coach. Walter Mazzarri's perceived communication issues were well-documented, and when combined by his reserved, withdrawn...

Watford stumbled but survived thanks to a startling September

Watford ensured they will enjoy a third consecutive season in the Premier League, but it was a difficult and often frustrating campaign that resulted in yet another head coach leaving Vicarage Road. Following Walter Mazzarri's dismissal, the Hornets are after their ninth manager in five years.

Rating out of 10: 6

Highlight

A comprehensive and well-deserved home victory over Manchester United on Sept. 18 was a memorable moment for the Hornets' faithful. Mourinho's side featured Zlatan Ibrahimovic...
