Premier League: WHU 2-4 Watford | Hammers stunned by spectacular Hornets comeback

Watford recorded their first win of the season after coming from two goals down to beat West Ham United 4-2 at London Stadium.

Michail Antonio scored twice with first-half headers, the opener from a Dimitri Payet corner before the Frenchman’s rabona cross picked out the West Ham winger at the far post.

The visitors were level by half-time after Odion Ighalo’s effort deflected off James Collins and Watford captain Troy Deeney capitalized on a defensive mix-up to lift the ball over Adrian and make it 2-2.

Roberto Pereyra then teed up Etienne Capoue for his third Premier League goal of 2016/17 before Watford defender Jose Holebas struck from long distance to reward the Hornets with three points.
