It is unlikely to be a game that lives long in the memory for its quality, but Watford's 1-0 victory over Everton is more likely to be recalled as a big win in the journey of aiming to ensure the Hornets are a Premier League club for another season.

Troy Deeney scored what proved to be the winner with 11 minutes remaining, spinning and blasting a shot inside Jordan Pickford's near post after being set up by substitute Stefano Okaka.

It gave the Hornets their ninth win of the campaign and moved them up to 10th in the table.

Here are a selection of images as Watford made it back-to-back triumphs at Vicarage Road under Javi Gracia.
