Brilliant Deeney, Superb Cathcart – The best and the worst rated Watford players in the win vs Tottenham Hotspur

Watford Player Ratings vs Tottenham Hotspur: Here’s how the Hornets fared

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.

Daryl Janmaat

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.

Substitutes

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.
