Che Adam’s superb strike was the difference as Southampton held on against Watford at Vicarage Road

for their first away league win of the season.

Scotland forward Adams latched on to an Adam Armstrong pass before turning on the edge of the box and curling the ball

into the top corner in the 20th minute.

Watford came close to an equaliser midway through the first half when Saints defender Kyle Walker-Peters cleared
Ismaila Sarr’s effort off the line.

And in the closing stages Southampton keeper Alex McCarthy saved brilliantly, diving to his right to keep out Ashley Fletcher.

But the Saints ran out winners, recording just their second Premier League victory of the season and moving above their hosts in the table.

Watford were booed at full-time, albeit by a minority of supporters, in what was just Claudio Ranieri’s third game in charge.

The hosts have now failed to win any of their past four home league games, and equalled their top-flight record of 20 consecutive

matches without a clean sheet.

They were very nearly behind inside the first minute with Craig Cathcart almost diverting a Nathan Redmond cross into his own net.

And Saints, who had won just one of their past 17 away league games coming into this fixture,

continued to dominate after going in front,

almost netting a second through an Adams header midway through the first half.

The visitors were good value for their win, with Watford unable to stop their opponents carve open chances at will,

and will count themselves lucky they lost by just the odd goal.

Che Adams has scored in his past two games having gone 14 matches without a goal in all competitions and

now he came back into a good form.
