Watford scored two spectacular goals as they deservedly won away at Southampton to move up to fourth in the Premier League table.
Watford ground out an industrial 2-0 win away at Southampton thanks to superb strikes from Abdoulaye Doucoure and substitute Daryl Janmaat to maintain coach Marco Silva’s unbeaten start to the season.
Long-range strikes from Abdoulaye Doucouré and Daryl Janmaat ended Southampton’s unbeaten start to the season and lifted Watford into the top four. The goals secured a 2-0 victory for the upwardly mobile Hornets in a game where Saints’ struggles in front of goal continued.
Long-range strikes from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Daryl Janmaat ended Southampton’s unbeaten start and lifted Watford into the top four.
Two excellent strikes from distance, one either side of half-time, gave Watford a deserved victory as Marco Silva continued his impressive start with the Hornets. First Abdoulaye Doucoure, then Daryl Janmaat both capitalised on unconvincing Southampton clearances to score low from 25 yards as the Saints were again bereft of creativity.
We’ve won impressively and deservedly against intimidating opponents. But we’ve not won like this. It’s not that we merited the win; that’s beyond dispute but not unique. It was the way we crushed Southampton between our jaws. The way that, more than merely deserving to win the game we were much, much better than our opponents. Play this game a hundred times, we win ninety nine times. Away to Southampton, a side who it could be argued are a reasonable target for our ambition in some ways. The victory is absolute, awesome, magnificent and magnificently straightforward.
After the game each encounter with a fellow Horn started with “How good was that?” Watford had completely dominated the game against a team that I would consider to be one of our main competitors.
It’s alright this football malarkey isn’t it? Of course, it helps when your team are playing like no one can stop them.
Marco Silva had arrived at Watford without a Premier League away win. However, the Portuguese head coach now has two in as many games as the outstanding Golden Boys took all three points at St Mary’s this afternoon
