On Sunday, Luton Town suffered an away defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road. Watford were looking to get back to winning ways after losing their last match 3-0 to Millwall. Luton were coming from consecutive wins against Norwich City and Queens Park Rangers. Watford are now in 10th place, with 23 points from 17 matches, while Luton sit in 9th, with 24 points from 17.

The Hornets didn’t take long to get on the score-sheet, with an early goal from Keinan Davis in the 3rd minute. They then scored again, pulling level thanks to a goal from William Troost-Ekong just before half-time and the first half ended 2-0.

Watford continued to pile on the pressure in the second half and were rewarded, with a goal from Joao Pedro, at 57 minutes. They then extended the lead with a goal from Ismaila Sarr, 79 minutes in to make it 4-0.

Substitutions for Watford included Vakoun Issouf Bayo, Mario Gaspar, Yaser Asprilla and Samuel Kalu for Keinan Davis, Hamza Choudhury, Joao Pedro and Ismaila Sarr, respectively. Luton brought on Gabriel Osho, Harry Cornick, Cameron Jerome and Louie Watson for Sonny Bradley, Luke Freeman, Carlton Morris and Allan Campbell.

The referee booked Keinan Davis, William Troost-Ekong and Ken Sema from Watford. Luton had the worst of it though, with Sonny Bradley, Alfie Doughty, Allan Campbell and Harry Cornick seeing yellow, and Gabriel Osho then sent off with a red.

Watford will next travel to Wigan Athletic, while Luton will face Sunderland AFC at home.
