Last weekend at Swansea, Hornets winger Richarlison popped up within the death seconds to clutch a 3rd away win at the spin for Marco Silva’s top-fliers.
And the £11.5million summer season signing from Fluminense repeated that feat as he produced the ultimate significant act of a pulsating showdown.
Nipping in unmarked on the some distance submit, Richarlison headed house from shut vary to clutch a dramatic level.
That was once sufficient to maintain top-flying Watford’s unbeaten document at the highway – and depart them in 5th position in a single day.
While the travelling lovers went rather delirious, their West Brom opposite numbers have been left feeling undoubtedly in poor health on the setback in time added on.
Until that ultimate-gasp equaliser, the Baggies have been heading in the right direction for a primary win in six in all competitions – and poised to jump forward of the guests within the desk.
A maximum uncommon goal from Salomon Rondon had given them the threshold and when Jonny Evans headed in after 21 mins, they have been gave the impression to be cruising.
However, Silva’s troops have proven a brand new resilience underneath the Portuguese trainer and fought again magnificently.
They totally deserved a percentage of spoils regardless of how lengthy it took them to earn it.
Until then the day had belonged to West Brom ahead Rondon. In truth, it was once a case of prevent what you have been doing and take into account the place you have been when he broke the impasse.
For till his 18th minute solo effort the exhausting-running Venezuelan had no longer scored on the Hawthorns since long ago in December 2016.
Indeed he had handiest been no goal as soon as in 27 video games any place sooner than the day before today.
There gave the impression little threat when Grzegorz Krychowiak received ownership inside of his personal part.
But appearing his talent, the midfielder pinged a nice ball over Watford’s top-urgent central defenders.
That stated, few would have subsidized Rondon to make it into the field and retain his composure to rating.
He did precisely that. Christian Kabalese actually bounced off Rondon when making an attempt to barge him off route – and may handiest watch the Baggies guy’s angled pressure fly in.
If that took everyone by means of wonder, the Baggies’ 2nd 4 mins later was once moderately extra predictable.
Abdoulaye Doucoure’s tried to transparent Matt Phillips’ nook however succeeded handiest in glancing it to the again submit the place Jonny Evans nodded house.
Doucoure made amends for his previous mistake by means of waltzing into the world and drilling low into the some distance nook.
Concerned Pulis shuffled his pack and the advent of James McClean gave the impression to have checked the onslaught, who conceded a bad some 4 mins into damage time.
And that was once the sign for Kabalese to ship a unfastened kick deep into the hosts’ house – and Richarlison to bury his 2nd necessary goal in successive video games.
