Watford Player Ratings vs Huddersfield Town: Here’s how the Hornets fared
Watford made light work of Huddersfield Town at Vicarage Road on Saturday to record back-to-back Premier League victories.
Goals from Roberto Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu put the Hornets two up inside 20 minutes before Issac Success iced the cake in a commanding display.
Huddersfield were a bit stubborn to break down after the break but credit to Javi Gracia’s boys to rip apart the visitors without even breaking a sweat. A comfortable 3-0 win for the Hornets.
Watford Player Ratings
Ben Foster – 9/10
A fantastic display from Foster, who made four top-class saves in the first half, most notably a wonderful fingertip save to divert Chris Lowe’s powerful long-range drive onto the crossbar.
Kiko Femenia – 8/10
Femenia bombarded down the right flank to join the attacks. Teed up Deulofeu and was defensively disciplined as well.
Craig Cathcart – 7/10
Another steady display from Cathcart at the back. He marshalled the defence well and kept things tight.
Adrian Mariappa- 7/10
Mariappa put in a solid display alongside Cathcart at the heart of the Watford defence. Dealt expertly with Depoitre and co.
Adam Masina – 6/10
Took time to settle down but once he did, there was no looking back for Masina. Delivered excellent crosses into the box from the left and was a threat all day long.
Abdoulaye Doucoure – 8/10
A dominant display from Doucoure, who broke the play and drove the team forward. Put in some really strong tackles as well.
Etienne Capoue – 8/10
Bossed the game alongside Doucoure. Capoue sat deep, protected the back-four and sprayed the passes to keep the Hornets ticking.
Will Hughes – 8/10
Linked up very well on the right with Femenia. Drifted infield to create things and make room for the right-back to bomb forward and cause problems.
Roberto Pereyra – 9/10
Pereyra has been on song since the start of the season and put in another fantastic display. Cutting in from the right, the Argentine skipped past for defenders before fizzing a shot past goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.
Enjoyed plenty of time and space to create opportunities for his teammates and could have had a brace but his effort went over the bar.
Gerard Deulofeu – 9/10
Filled with pace, movement and flair, Deulofeu caused endless problems for Huddersfield and scored a fantastic solo goal.
Isaac Success – 8/10
Worked very hard throughout the game, linked up well with his fellow attackers and was rewarded in the second half with a goal.
Ken Sema – 5/10
Replaced Deulofeu but never really threatened the opponents.
Andre Gray – 5/10
Replaced Success and other than chasing loose balls, he didn’t do much.
Christian Kabasele – 5/10
Strengthened the defence and guided Watford to a clean sheet.
