Watford were defeated by Norwich City after three second-half goals sealed three points for the Canaries at Vicarage Road.
Norwich’s first goal came through Josh Sargent’s flicked effort, with the American scoring a second 20 minutes before the end of normal time.
In an eventful second period, Watford went down to 10 men after Emmanuel Dennis received a second yellow card, then Moussa Sissoko’s goal was ruled offside and Juraj Kucka’s own goal completed a disappointing night.
An early flurry of attacks from the visitors kicked the Hornets into gear in the first half. New signings Samir and Hassane Kamara were forced to make blocks and challenges, with the Ivorian particularly effective from left-back.
Kamara linked up with fellow new boy Edo Kayembe and threatened in attack, playing an excellent cross for Dennis, but the forward’s leaping effort was judged as a foul on Brandon Williams.
