Huddersfield Town's wait for a Premier League win continues after goals from Roberto Pereyra, Gerard Deulofeu and Isaac Success inspired Watford to a 3-0 victory at Vicarage Road on Saturday.  

David Wagner's side – which has now failed to win in 10 games this season – fell behind after 10 minutes when Pereyra took advantage of some generous defending to dance his way into the penalty area and coolly finish past Jonas Lossl for his fifth goal of the campaign.

Deulofeu doubled the Hornets' advantage nine minutes later with a fine run and finish as Javi Gracia's side threatened to put the game out of sight before half-time.  

Watford had to wait until the 80th minute to truly put the result beyond doubt, however, as Success fired in from close range to seal a second consecutive Premier League win and prolong the Terriers' wait for their first of the campaign. 

Huddersfield started brightly and saw early efforts from Aaron Mooy and Alex Pritchard kept out by Ben Foster and flash over the crossbar respectively.

Those near-misses were brought into sharp focus after 10 minutes when Pereyra cut in from the left, waltzed through a number of half-hearted challenges and slotted underneath Lossl.

That was followed by Deulofeu's own moment of magic. Cutting in from the right, the Spaniard skipped past two attempted tackles and cracked a fizzing shot past Lossl from a tight angle for his first goal of the campaign.

Foster then produced a wonderful fingertip save to divert Chris Lowe's powerful long-range drive onto the crossbar, while Deulofeu dragged an effort agonisingly wide of Lossl's right-hand post after another mazy run.

Deulofeu should have put the game to bed four minutes after the restart, clipping wide after rounding Lossl on the edge of the area, while Will Hughes' close-range effort after a flowing move was kept out by the Danish goalkeeper.

Watford comfortably kept Wagner's men at arm's length in the second period and scored the third its superiority deserved 10 minutes from time, Success slotting in after meeting Kiko Femenia's cross.

What's next?

Watford will be confident of continuing its impressive start to the season when it visits struggling Newcastle United next Saturday, while Huddersfield will hope a home clash with Fulham two days later brings it its first win of the season.
