Cardiff City 0-1 Watford

Gerard Deulofeu‘s seeing eye grounder from atop the 18 has the visitors ahead, while a surprising non-call on teammate Daryl Janmaat kept Cardiff City from a chance to equalize from the spot.

West Ham 2-1 Fulham

Ryan Babel‘s third minute goal gave the Cottagers an early lead, but Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Issa Diop have struck to give the hosts a London Derby lead at the half.

As for Chicharito, there’s some solid salesmanship in his nodding his head while slapping the ball over the line here. VAR much?
