Watford fans blown away by Troy Deeney in win over Manchester United

The 31-year-old netted his first goal of the season in yesterday’s win over the Red Devils.

Watford defied the odds and boosted their hopes of Premier League survival with a 2-0 win over Manchester United.

Goals from Ismaila Sarr and Troy Deeney gave the Hornets a superb victory and drew them level on points with 19th-placed Norwich City.

It was only the second win of the season for Watford who are on their third manager of the campaign.

Nigel Pearson has revived fortunes and this was just rewards for some eyecatching football since his arrival.

A goal for striker Deeney was the ideal tonic for Watford. The 31-year-old has missed a large chunk of the campaign through injury and his goal on Sunday was his first of the season.

The Hornets number nine stepped up to a penalty and emphatically put the seal on a memorable victory.

After the game, Watford fans took to Twitter to speak of their delight with the captain’s performance.
