An unremarkable quarter hour gave way to Dele’s fitting opener, as Watford goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis fumbled a catch to Christian Eriksen. The Dane passed to Dele, who calmly slotted low into the goal.
The Frenchman made a save on a breaking Richarlison in the 44th minute, and then rushed out of his box to slide the ball away from Abdoulaye Doucoure.
