Hornets Head Coach Wilder made three changes from Saturday’s starting XI, bringing in Ngakia, Leandro Bacuna and Koné for Mario Gaspar, the injured Ismaïla Sarr and the suspended Hamza Choudhury.
Following a disappointing defeat to Queens Park Rangers last time out, the Hornets were quick to put their best foot forward as inside five minutes they took the lead.
On the edge of the box, Davis swept his pass out wide to Ken Sema, who drilled a cross to Louza. Without hesitation, the Moroccan fired it into the far corner to give Watford an early lead.
With the Hornets in the ascendancy, it wouldn’t take long for them to earn another chance to score as Davis and Louza, who were both involved in the opener, combined again in another attacking move.
