Troy Deeney strikes late for Watford to hand Everton defeat

24/02/2018

Watford moved up to 10th in the table as Troy Deeney's late goal gave them a valuable 1-0 victory over Everton at Vicarage Road.

In a first half of little meaningful action, Watford goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis pushed away a deflected cross-shot from Oumar Niasse, while home forward Gerard Deulofeu curled a promisingly-placed free kick straight into the Everton wall.

Sebastian Prodl headed over the top for the Hornets early in the second period, but Everton could have been ahead after 52 minutes when Michael Keane met a cross but steered his header wide of the far post.

But when the breakthrough finally came, it was Watford who made it with 79 minutes on the clock, Deeney turning and thumping a finish high into the net from Stefano Okaka's cross.
