Heurelho Gomes – 7.5

 Despite a shaky start, which saw the Brazilian misjudge a ball over the top, made a number of good stops to keep the Hornets level in the first half.

Daryl Janmaat – 7

Got forward to good effect in the first half and provided a number of decent overlapping opportunities on the right flank.

Miguel Britos – 6

Kept the Real attack at bay throughout and formed a solid centre-back pairing with Younes Kaboul.

Younes Kaboul – 6

Will have been pleased to have got the best part of 90 minutes under his belt after a summer battling injury problems and looked assured.

Jose Holebas – 6.5

Defensively sound and provided similar attacking threat on the left to Janmaat at right-back.

Nathaniel Chalobah – 6

Played in a deep role and was efficient in possession, using the ball well and keeping the hosts ticking over.

Abdoulaye Doucoure – 6.5

Like Chalobah played in a defensive midfield berth, and was similarly sensible in his use of the ball. Range of passing was a plus for Watford as he regularly initiated moves.

Tom Cleverley – 5

A tough day for the former Manchester United man who struggled in a role behind the striker as he repeatedly found himself too advanced. A poor first touch at the start of the second half saw him lose possession when clear on goal and waste Watford’s best opening.

Roberto Pereyra – 7

By far Watford’s best attacking outlet and enjoyed a free role which allowed him the drift between the lines. Went close to a fine winner with a curling effort in the second half.

Nordin Amrabat – 6.5

Linked up well with Janmaat on the right and put in a number of good crosses throughout.

Jerome Sinclair – 6

A tough task for the youngster as he played up top on his own. A couple of nice touches on a quiet day.


Sebastian Prodl – 6

Solid when introduced and looks likely to be selected to start when the season gets underway next week.

Isaac Success – 5  

A couple of poor touches and wasted a golden chance to claim victory, volleying over when unmarked at the back post.

Will Hughes – 6

Another cameo appearance for the summer arrival which saw him use the ball well, but have little impact on proceedings as a whole.

Kiko Femenia – 6.5

Continued a promising start to life at Vicarage Road, getting forward well and almost provided and assist with a fine cross for Stefano Okaka.

Ben Watson – 6

Fit in well in midfield and provided a number of dangerous balls from set pieces.

Etienne Capoue – 5.5

The game passed him by after he came on and looks to have dropped down the pecking order under Marco Silva.

Stefano Okaka – 7

Saw a decent header ruled out for offside and got on the end of a number of crosses while putting himself about. Missed a fine chance to win it as he blazed over from Femenia’s cross.

Brandon Mason – N/A

Adrian Mariappa – N/A
