Troy Deeney and a Nathaniel Chalobah stunner from 30 yards put Watford 2-0 up at the break and although Harry Kane's header hauled the hosts back into the game midway through the second half, they couldn't find an equaliser.

"The two goals, at the time that they came, knocked us for six. It affected the players visibly" said Pearson. "And we could have conceded another one before half-time as well.

"The second goal was a quality strike and there wasn't a lot we could have done about that in all honesty.

"We had a go in the second half and it's just not happened for us again.

"We had to make a fist of it in the second half and I thing we did. I think the players worked hard to try and get back into it but, again, it just didn't happen for us.

"We couldn't have got any more attacking players on the pitch and I think the players have given everything again, I couldn't have asked for much more from them.

"But it wasn't enough and unfortunately that's been the story too often this season, and that's a shame because there's been a lot of good things about us this season.

"However, we haven't won enough tight game and our run since early February has been really damaging."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
