Watford’s Premier League season continued with a win against West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

A one-nil win at West Brom basically secured Watford’s Premier League security, and sets us up nicely for Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semi-final.

This came after Heurelho Gomes saved not one but two Saido Berahino penalties!

Watford took the lead just before the half hour mark when Ben Watson, usually the one supplying the corners, volleyed one in to give the Hornets a half time lead.

Having conceded the first penalty midway through the second half Gomes redeemed himself to save Berahino’s effort with West Brom having a second chance, three-minutes from time, to earn a point but again (with a fine save) the Brazilian ‘keeper saved to give Watford the points.

The win took us to 41-points and up to 12th, above West Brom, with 11-points between us and the bottom three now with Gomes becoming the first ‘keeper to save two penalties in two Premier League matches.

Here’s a round up of the Premier League action from the other games played at the weekend….

It was all about relegation on Saturday with this something, as has been inevitable for weeks (if not months) now, that was confirmed for Aston Villa (one-nil) with the defeat against Manchester United at Villa Park confirming they’ll play in the Championship next season.

Who will join them?

This is very much a battle on now with two from three is seems!

Sunderland (three-nil) secured a crucial three-points to close in on Norwich, who remain just outside the bottom three with Newcastle (three-nil) matching the result of their rivals later in the day when beating Swansea at St James’ Park.

Premier League safety was secured by Watford (one-nil) after the win at West Brom with Manchester City’s (three-nil) win at Chelsea leaving them in a strong position to finish in a Champions League place, which is a competition City may yet win this season!
