Tom Cleverley claims controversial Watford equaliser against Stoke City
A controversial equaliser shrouded in mystery helped Watford beat Stoke 3-2 at Vicarage Road, where Ismaila Sarr scored the winner in stoppage time.
Stoke were given early impetus when Steven Fletcher converted Nick Powell’s low cross. But Watford drew level when Tom Cleverley’s shot was judged to have crossed the line after being tipped on to the bar by keeper Angus Gunn, who was himself then barged over the line by Joao Pedro after gathering the bouncing ball.
For the second successive home game there was late, late drama at Vicarage Road, with the Hornets happily coming out on top this time round.
