Watford join Liverpool at the summit after Palace win


Wilfried Zaha, booed throughout after early yellow cards for and against him, pulled one back for Palace but it wasn't enough to stop Roy Hodgson's boys slumping to back-to-back defeats.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson insists Wilfired Zaha's performance href='http://www.skysports.com/football/watford-vs-c-palace/390785' in his side's 2-1 defeat to Watford suffered as a effect of Etienne Capoue's cynical early foul.

"It definitely affected Wilf", he said.

"I think now he's ready".

Zaha was booked himself for a late challenge on Jose Holebas in a fiery start to the game.

Souness finished by saying: "He's unique in our football, nearly unique in our football and I am an enormous fan of him. And I am sure that when he sees it now with the TV, then he would probably agree with us as well". I wouldn't like to be quoted afterwards saying the referee missed something.

"He immediately jumped in and gave the yellow card because it was very early in the game. As it turns out now with hindsight and having seen with the benefits of TV he could have sanctioned even harder".

"If you're asking me whether Harry the Hornet, who I presume is the mascot, should dive in that way, I think it's disgraceful, because that's not what football matches are about".

Townsend then played James McArthur in in front of goal, but after the midfielder controlled possession to leave him with only Foster to beat he struck low and straight at the goalkeeper.

Watford and Roberto Pereyra continued their flying starts to the Premier League season as Javi Gracia's men made it three wins out of three by beating Crystal Palace 2-1.

"And we just have to accept that unfortunately in the first half the two very good chances we created produced fantastic saves from Ben Foster".

"After that I was quite pleased with the team's reaction because at 2-0 we could so easily have thought, especially with that type of goal, it's not our day".
