Wat­ford make it three from three

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

PREMIER LEAGUE: Wat­ford main­tained their 100 per cent record with a 2-1 home vic­tory over Crys­tal Palace.

Roberto Pereyra and Jose Hole­bas were on tar­get for the Hor­nets, with Wilfried Zaha manag­ing a late con­so­la­tion for the Ea­gles.

Palace were fu­ri­ous that Wat­ford mid­fielder Etienne Capoue avoided an early red card af­ter ap­pear­ing to rake his studs down the back of Zaha’s Achilles.

Roy Hodg­son’s side had the bet­ter of the early stages, but Wat­ford grad­u­ally grew into the game and Pereyra’s third goal of the sea­son put them ahead af­ter 53 min­utes.

A for­tu­nate sec­ond from Jose Hole­bas, which ap­peared to be an over­hit cross, dou­bled Wat­ford’s lead af­ter 71 min­utes.

Zaha fired home from a tight an­gle seven min­utes later, but Wat­ford held on to make it three wins from as many games.
