What a start it’s been for Watford. The Hornets are one of just three teams apart from Chelsea and Liverpool to make it four wins from four.
Javi Gracia’s men clinched a scintillating 2-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur before the international break. The Hornets were unfortunate to concede an own goal via Abdoulaye Doucoure.
But two well-taken set-piece goals converted by Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart handed all three points to the Watford. It’s been a dream start for the Hornets under Javi Garcia.
Watford Player Ratings
Ben Foster (7/10)
Foster was superior in goal and charged out to win everything.
Daryl Janmaat (7/10)
Janmaat’s raids down the right flank posed all sorts of problems for Tottenham Hotspur.
Craig Cathcart (8/10)
Super performance from the centre-back who scored the winning goal.
Christian Kabasele (7/10)
Kabasele kept Lucas Moura and Harry Kane at bay as Spurs often threatened the defence.
Jose Holebas (9/10)
Another commanding performance from Watford’s left-back who picked up both the assists via set-pieces.
Abdoulaye Doucoure (6/10)
Doucoure was unfortunate to concede an own goal. But the midfielder defended well in the middle of the park.
Etienne Capoue (8/10)
Capoue and Doucoure have turned into a formidable partnership in the middle of the park. Capoue’s surging runs from midfield posed a huge threat.
Will Hughes (8/10)
Hughes put in am excellent shift on the night. The attacking midfield was on point with his passing and created a number of opportunites in the final third.
Roberto Pereyra (7/10)
Pereyra did have a few chances to find the back of the net. His daunting runs into the box ensured Vertonghen and Alderweireld were always on their heels.
Andre Gray (6/10)
Not a very productive afternoon for Gray but he put in a decent shift as well.
Troy Deeney (9/10)
A captain’s performance from the striker. Tory Deeney handed Tottenham a torrid time at the back and scored the opener for Watford.
Isaac Success (7/10)
Success was bullish on the ball and posed a huge problem for Tottenham’s backline after coming on.
Nathaniel Chalobah (5/10)
Chalobah was brought on to add security in the middle of the park.
Adrian Mariappa (N/A)
Mariappa was brought on in the dying seconds of the game and had no real influence.
