EPL

Watford beat Tottenham 2 – 1

Harry Kane

Both sides began the match with 100% records but Craig Cathcart’s second-half header edged a tight encounter. Watford maintained their perfect start to the Premier League season as they came from behind to shock Tottenham at Vicarage Road.

Captain Troy Deeney had drawn his side level seven minutes earlier, cancelling out Spurs’ fortuitous opener as Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure bundled into his own net. And Watford held on to win their opening four games of a league campaign for the first time in 30 years and join Liverpool and Chelsea on maximum points at the top of the table.

In the first half of limited chances, England midfielder Dele Alli had the earliest opportunity for either side with a looping header that only momentarily concerned the back-pedalling Ben Foster, before Deeney headed over for the Hornets from Daryl Janmaat’s inviting cross during a, particularly quiet opening 20 minutes.

Harry Kane, in particular, cut a frustrated figure for Spurs and it took until first-half stoppage time for either side to manage a shot on target – Deeney’s weak long-range effort collected by Michel Vorm, a stand-in for injured Spurs captain Hugo Lloris.

But the visitors found themselves ahead soon after the break, as Doucoure turned into his own net after Watford had failed to clear their lines.

Deeney led the charge as the Hornets looked to respond and saw his cross diverted on to the crossbar by Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld moments before levelling from the resulting corner.

And it was another set-piece that allowed the Hornets to turn the game around on 76 minutes as defender Cathcart nestled a powerful header into the top corner of Vorm’s goal to ensure Watford’s best ever start to a Premier League season continues.
