Argentinian gets third goal of the season in 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace

Watford maintained their winning start to the season by beating Crystal Palace 2-1 at Vicarage Road.

Roberto Pereyra opened the scoring on 53 minutes, cutting in from the left before curling his shot into the far corner for his third goal of the season.

Jose Holebas doubled Watford's lead when his attempted cross flew into the far corner.

Wilfried Zaha halved the deficit from a narrow angle after a one-two with substitute Max Meyer but Watford held on, despite Joel Ward's stoppage-time header going agonisingly wide.

Three successive wins move Watford to third, level on nine points with Liverpool and Chelsea. Palace are 11th with three points.
