Two goals in 58 first-half seconds saw a dominant Watford seal their first win since September and end Wolves’ 6-game unbeaten run
The visitors blew Wolves away with their rapid double and could have had a couple more if not for the hosts’ resolute defenders, who refused to be embarrassed having conceded just once in their previous 7 games.
Capoue scored his second goal of the season, receiving the ball outside the area from Doucoure and sending it flying through the legs of Wolves captain Coady and past the helpless Patricio. Pereyra then delightfully dinked the ball over the goalkeeper with the outside of his left boot to score his side’s second.
Wolves found another gear in the second half, but were left frustrated as they struggled to convert their chances, with late efforts from Costa and substitute Cavaleiro not amounting to anything.
