    Thanks for joining us today. I'm off to catch my breath. And write a match report. Until next time... goodbye.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Watford 3-4 Southampton

    Can't beat a seven-goal match, you got your money's worth.

  3. Post update

    Abdoulaye Doucoure taps home from close range from M'Baye Niang's cross.

    Surely not?

    Injury time now at Vicarage Road.

    Got your breath back?

    30 seconds before those two Saints goals, Watford really should have been ahead but Stefano Okaka was wasteful on the attack.

    30 seconds later it's 3-2 and another minute later it's 4-2.

    Costly.

    Watford 2-4 Southampton

    So much space for Nathan Redmond, he dribbles into the box and lashes his shot in past Heurelho Gomes.

    Poor defending, poor keeping. Two goals in two minutes for the Saints and they are home and dry.

  8. GOAL - Watford 2-4 Southampton

    Redmond

  9. Post update

    Watford 2-3 Southampton

    Moment after Stefano Okaka should have made it 3-2 to Watford, the Saints go down the other end and score.

    Not a great moment from Heurelho Gomes. The Brazilian spills Sofiane Boufal shot straight into the path of Manolo Gabbiadini and the Italian does not miss from there.

    Six goals in four games, the first Saints player to score in his first three Premier League appearances for the club.

  10. GOAL - Watford 2-3 Southampton

    Gabbiadini

    Watford 1-2 Southampton

    Wasn't expecting that.

    Isaac Success puts the ball on a plate for Stefano Okaka and the Italian does the rest to prod home from six yards.

    Watford 1-2 Southampton

    12 minutes to go here at Vicarage Road.

    James Ward-Prowse is off, Sofiane Boufal is on. The Saints want a third.  

  14. Post update

    Watford 1-2 Southampton

    Terrible free-kick by Watford.

    Tom Cleverley takes it, he passes it short to Jose Holebas, but the Greek international stutters on his approach and somehow forces a corner. Sure it looked great on the training ground lads.

    Soon after Troy Deeney has a chance but slices his shot wide.

  15. Post update

    That was a great chance for Watford.

    Oriol Romeu was so causal in possession, he had the ball taken off him by Tom Cleverley, who played in Stefano Okaka, but the Italian you have to say wasted the chance.

    Watford 1-2 Southampton

    Stefano Okaka, who has spent most of the game raging at the ref, has his chance to equalise but shoots low and Fraser Forster saves with his feet.

  17. YELLOW CARD

    Watford 1-2 Southampton

    Sebastian Prodl - man bun and all - is booked. 

  18. Post update

    Watford have not been great in this second half. Southampton should be out of sight, but there is still only one goal in it. 

  19. Post update

    Watford 1-2 Southampton

    The Southampton front four of  Nathan Redmond, James Ward-Prowse, Manolo Gabbiadini and Dusan Tadic are causing Watford a whole host of problems.

    Meanwhile Isaac Success has just come on for Etienne Capoue, he runs into Cedric Soares' shoulder and hits the deck.

    Think he might have been fishing for a foul there.

  20. Post update

    Watford 1-2 Southampton

    Watford are readying the changes, with the wonderfully named Isaac Success receiving some instructions.

    They need some Isaac Inspiration here.
