Watford climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone for the first time this season as their remarkable revival under Nigel Pearson continued with a 3-0 win at Bournemouth on Sunday.

Captain Troy Deeney rifled an effort home with 25 minutes to go before substitute Pereyra added an injury-time third to wrap up a victory which allowed Watford to leapfrog Bournemouth in the table.

Bournemouth have taken just four points from their last 11 games and looked a side completely devoid of confidence.

Bournemouth provisional squad: Ramsdale, Francis, S Cook, Rico, Mepham, Gosling, Lerma, L Cook, H Wilson, Solanke, C Wilson, Boruc, Simpson, Surman, Stanislas, Fraser, Billing, Dobre, Surridge. Adam Masina replaced the injured Kiko Femenia, while Adrian Mariappa entered for Christian Kabasele suspended.

However, it was Watford who started faster, since Ismaila Sarr, Gerard Deulofeu and Deeney joined well to find space behind Cherries' defense.

Mark Travers, that maintained his location in the Cherries side following their 4-0 loss of Luton in the FA Cup, had a minute to neglect, taking an unpleasant touch prior to skewing his clearance right to Sarr simply outside package.

Eddie Howe has actually called his side's inadequate run of kind - with just one win in the Cherries last 11 organization components - his most hard spell as manager, however the 2nd fifty percent proceeded with Watford in the ascendancy.

"At Bournemouth, we try and play out".

The Hornets looked comfortable and safe when, again and again, they crossed Bournemouth at will, Chalobah fired just after finding space on the edge of the box. Roberto Pereyra added a third in stoppage time.
