This Tuesday, Watford welcomed Norwich for matchday 34 of the Premier League. At the Vicarage Road, the fight against relegation started with the Canaries opening the scoring at the early minutes but ended with the Hornets getting a 2-1 victory and leaving with the 3 points. Craig Dawson and Danny Welbeck score for the hosts, while Emi Buendia scored for the visitors.

The first half had barely begun and the deadlock was already broken. At the 4th minute, Onel Hernandez made a great play from the left and found Buendia entering the box. The number 17 controlled the ball and hit into the left corner, not giving chances to goalkeeper Ben Foster.

However, they didn’t have much time to celebrate. Already at the 10th minute, Watford found the equalizer through Dawson. After a free-kick, the number 4 was in the far post to head the ball into the back of the net.

After that, the hosts started to control the match, having more the ball and better opportunities to score again. Goalkeeper Tim Krul had to make some good saves to make broth teams go to the half-time with a 1-1 draw.

The second half started almost like the first, the only difference was that the visitors were not able to score. However, the hosts did. At the 55th minute, Ismaila Sarr started a fast counter-attack and tried to cross into the box. The ball deflected in the Canaries’ defense and ended up in a perfect position to Welbeck to hit an overhead kick into the back of the net. What a goal from the Hornets’ number 10.

The visitors didn’t stop trying to find the equalizer, and they even had the perfect chance in the last minutes. After a crossing from the left, Josip Drmic was able to deflect the ball with a header, but Adam Idah didn’t reach it in time to score. The match ended 2-1 for the hosts.

With the victory, Watford reaches 31 points, the same amount as West Ham, but remained in 17th place due to the goal difference. Meanwhile, Norwich remains in the last position, with only 21 points, and it starts to get more and more difficult to avoid relegation.
