Newcastle finally wins in EPL at Watford’s expense
NEWCASTLE, England (AP) — Newcastle finally tasted victory 11 games into the English Premier League after beating Watford 1-0 at St James’ Park on Saturday.
Ayoze Perez converted fellow substitute Ki Sung-yueng’s free kick in the 65th minute.
Deulofeu also side-footed wastefully wide from Jose Holebas‘ cut-back, and was even more profligate following a counterattack.
Perez then put Newcastle in front and the home team could have effectively ended the match as a contest when Salomon Rondon headed a Kenedy cross wide.
There was still time, though, for Okaka and Andre Gray to go close to snatching an equalizer for Watford.
