  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! DEENEY SCORES THIS TIME!!!! 1-0!!! Watford take the lead through their skipper as he pounces from close range to convert a low strike through Heaton. Konsa gives the ball away on the edge of the box straight to Doucoure. He launches a powerful low strike across Heaton towards the bottom-left corner. Heaton makes the stop, but Deeney is the first to react. He slides a low effort at goal that squirms under the Villa keeper's body and into the net.

  • Mariappa goes in for a 50/50 challenge with Lansbury and catches him late. He receives a second booking and a red card from referee Simon Hooper. There was not a great deal of contact there, but enough for midfielder to draw the foul.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!! DEENEY CONVERTS!!! 2-0!! The 10 men of Watford extend their lead as their skipper holds his nerve from 12 yards. He goes the same way he did in their win over United last week, going for power straight down the middle. Heaton dives to his right and can only watch as the ball crashes into the back of the net.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! SARR MAKES IT THREE!! 3-0!!! Watford are cruising their way towards the three points despite being down to 10 men. Grealish is robbed of possession by Capoue and goes down. The referee plays on and Deeney collects before sending Capoue on his way down the left flank. Capoue lifts a cross to the back post where Sarr charges forward to make contact, diverting a low strike past Heaton into the right corner of th net. The challenge on Grealish is checked by VAR, but the goal stands, much to the fury of the Villa skipper and his manager.
