Abdoulaye Doucoure scored a late, controversial equaliser to earn Watford a dramatic 2-2 draw against Southampton.
Midfielder James Ward-Prowse scored twice for Mauricio Pellegrino’s side in the first half but Andre Gray pulled one back for Watford just before the hour mark, before Doucoure levelled things up in the last minute.
Ward-Prowse’s first goal came thanks to determined work from Shane Long down the right who pulled the ball from the right for the midfielder to calmly slot home.

It was the Irishman’s work-rate which brought the second goal as he raced onto a clearance, before playing in Dusan Tadic who held the ball until Ward-Prowse reached the area and the laid it off so he could get his second of the match.
Troy Deeney’s half-time introduction made Watford look a more dangerous side, and he set up Daryl Janmaat for a shot which Alex McCarthy had to tip onto the bar, only for Gray to head home the rebound from three yards out.
After considerable pressure from Watford, Doucoure finally made it pay when he latched onto a chipped pass from Deeney in the 90th minute, but the midfielder missed the ball with his head so palmed it beyond the onrushing Alex McCarthy.
