Watford 1-4 Palace

Watford 1-4 Palace

Crystal Palace won their first league match of 2022 with a 4-1 success at Watford.

Jean-Philippe Mateta got the scoring under way in the 15th minute, with a turn and shot that took a deflection to wrong-foot keeper Ben Foster.

Watford were level just three minutes later after Moussa Sissoko nodded in Kiko Femenia's corner from close range.

Conor Gallagher restored Palace's lead with a neat touch and finish from Tyrick Mitchell's cross on 42 minutes for his eighth goal of the season.

Wilfried Zaha then increased the Eagles' advantage five minutes from time with a low strike off substitute Jordan Ayew's assist.

And Zaha saved his best until last by cutting in from the left and hitting a powerful shot into the back of the net for 4-1.
