Watford boss Javi Gracia saluted the Hornets’ killer instinct after two goals in 58 seconds stunned Wolves at Molineux. Etienne Capoue and Ricardo Pererya secured a 2-0 win thanks to their quickfire first-half strikes. Watford’s first win in six attempts also inflicted Wolves’ first home league defeat since January.

The Hornets, who had lost 4-0 to Bournemouth before the international break, rose to seventh in the Premier League and Gracia hailed their rapid goals.
He said: “The second goal was the key to the game. We had more chances too – Wolves did too but the key was scoring the goals. In my opinion we deserved this win.
“After the last game we had two tough weeks preparing for the game and today we have got a good reward.
“We dominated the first half with possession, passes, creating more chances, scoring two goals.
“In the second we have defended, we changed the shape, and we have done well playing against Wolves – everyone knows they are playing really well. It was a complete game.”
