Watford put in a dominant display as they eased to a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Roberto Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu gave the Hornets a 2-0 lead advantage at the half-time interval as they scored excellent individual efforts.

The busy Isaac Success finished the scoring after the break as he tapped in from close range after a well worked free-kick routine.

Javi Gracia’s men were on song all across the pitch as they remained defensively resolute to record a second clean sheet in a row.

Here’s how the Hornets rated at Vicarage Road.

Ben Foster – 8

Watford Observer:

Watford may have emerged comfortable 3-0 winners but Foster still had to be on song to keep them in the driving seat.

Made two smart saves in the first half to prevent the Terriers grabbing a lifeline and earned the reward of a second straight clean sheet.

Kiko Femenia – 7

A constant threat on the right flank the Spaniard looked to get forward whenever he could and linked up well with Will Hughes.

Adrian Mariappa – 8

Has added a sense of calm at the back since coming in at Wolves and won his fair share of aerial battles and put in a host of well-timed tackles.

Craig Cathcart – 7

Formed a solid central defensive pairing with Mariappa and played his part in Watford securing a clean sheet.

Adam Masina – 7

Has grasped his chance to impress after Jose Holebas’ suspension and played well after a nervy start to the day. Looks good going forward as well and provided good delivery.

Will Hughes – 8 Along with Pereyra and Deulofeu, Hughes was one of Watford’s most creative outlet. The midfielder is enjoying the freedom he has to drift about the pitch.

Etienne Capoue – 7

Watford Observer:

Another excellent display as Capoue put in a typically energetic display to help break up many of Huddersfield’s attacks.

Abdoulaye Doucoure – 8

The driving force of Watford’s midfield, Doucoure didn’t allow the Town midfield a moments rest and also started many of the home side’s attacks from deep.

Roberto Pereyra – 8.5

His stunning solo goal will live long in the memory as he beat four Huddersfield players with a driving run before scoring his fifth goal of the season.

The Argentine is full of confidence and is showing the sort of form which saw him represent Juventus before making his Watford move.

Gerard Deulofeu – 9

The game’s outstanding player marked his first home start of the season with a fine goal as he beat two men and fired high into the top corner.

Deulofeu provided the focal point for much of Watford’s attacking endeavours and he had the beating of the Town defence.

Has already sparked up a strong understanding with Success and played some lovely passes into the Nigerian forward.

Isaac Success – 8.5

Watford Observer:

So good the see a performance full of purpose and commitment rewarded with a goal as the striker notched in the Premier League for the first time in two years.

Success’ hold up play was excellent throughout and is making a serious claim to remain in the starting XI even when Toy Deeney returns to fitness.


Ken Sema – 6

Ran about energetically but was nowhere near as productive as Deulofeu who he replaced.

Andre Gray – N/A

A late substitution for the impressive Success, Gray had little time to make an impact.

Christian Kabasele – N/A

Came on for the last five minutes.
