Watford have reeled off three straight wins including over Huddersfield (2-0) and Barnsley (1-0) at home. 

The Hornets also took all three points at Stoke in a 2-1 with at the bet365 Stadium. Troy Deeney scored from the penalty spot for the second game running, and Ismaila Sarr was also on the scoresheet.
