Player ratings as Canaries leapfrog Hornets in relegation battle


Norwich have moved out of the Premier League relegation zone for the first time this season thanks to a statement 3-0 win against Watford at Vicarage Road.

While levering the Canaries out of the bottom three, the result pushes the Hornets into it and leaves manager Claudio Ranieri under increasing pressure.

A brace from Josh Sargent made the difference, with a late own goal rounding off the scoring.

Watford dominated the first half and should have taken a lead into the interval when Moussa Sissoko failed to make clean contact with the ball right in front of goal and missed the target.

The Hornets were made to regret not turning that dominance into a goal because it was only a few minutes into the second half when Sargent scored his contender for goal of the season.
