Comments:

League position: 12th Watford failed in their attempt to win three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since December 2015. The Hornets had now conceded at least two goals in six of their last eight away games in the Premier League. They had now failed to score in four of their last six away games in the Premier League. Watford manager Walter Mazzarri said: "The important thing that we have to avoid is losing too many balls in the midfield. This is what cost us the result today."
