Norwich won for the second time in as many matches as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. Josh Sargent opened the scoring with a brilliant piece of improvisation in the 74th minute before doubling their advantage in the 74th minute. Emmanuel Dennis was then sent off in the 78th minute before Juraj Kucka put through his own net in stoppage time.

Man of the match: Josh Sargent.
Watford manager Claudio Ranieri: “First of all I have to say sorry to the fans. I told the players to ignite the fire. The second half after the goal, we disappeared. Maybe we played better with 10 than 11. Now we must pick up the players who have hearts like Sissoko and Cleverley. Only the players with the fight can help us survive. We have to change our mentality. We cannot carry on in this way. I want players who can play with passion and heart.”
Norwich manager Dean Smith: “For a long period of the game I was happy but I wasn’t happy in the final 15 minutes as with a man advantage we should have done better with the ball. But to get the win was the main thing today.”
