Three things we learnt from Watford's sensational comeback at West Ham
Watford finally got off the mark with their first win under new manager Walter Mazzarri after a sensational comeback from 2-0 down to stun Slaven Bilic’s West Ham United and snatch the points in East London.
In only the second Premier League game to be played at the Hammers’ new London Stadium home at the former Olympic Park, the hosts were seemingly in cruise control after two Michail Antonio headers- to put the midfielder on a Premier League high of ten headed goals since August 2015- had the Hammers two goals to the good just past the half hour mark.
Watford however roared back before the break, with a deflected strike from Odion Ighalo followed by a superb Troy Deeney finish to haul the scores level at 2-2 going into the interval.
Watford’s first-half comeback had reinvigorated them for the second half, and they seized control of the game with an Etienne Capoue volleyed goal and an 18-yard effort from Jose Holebas putting the gloss on the win.
In an early contender for comeback of the season, what did we learn from Watford’s mesmerising salvaging job in East London?
