- Ward-Prowse scores two
- Doucoure equalizer controversial
- Watford remains top half
How has the linesman missed this?!?
James Ward-Prowse‘s first brace in nearly two years only helped Southampton to a draw, as a handled late goal from Watford sprung a 2-2 result at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
Andre Gray and Abdoulaye Doucouré scored for the Hornets, the second a very late and extremely controversial goal as Watford moved 10th with 25 points.
Saints are just a point above the drop zone with the draw. Ward-Prowse’s only other Premier League brace came Jan. 16, 2016 against West Brom.

It was Long’s work again that cued up the second goal, his run feeding Dusan Tadic. The Serbian playmaker opted to find Ward-Prowse rather than shoot and it was 2-0 just before the break.
Gray pulled one back for Swans when he was first to a rebound off Daryl Janmaat‘s cross bar rip. And Doucoure’s controversial moment earned the point.
