Watford - Aaron Mooy scored twice as Huddersfield enjoyed only theer second away win of the Premier League season with a 4-1 victory at Watford on Saturday.

Elias Kachunga and Mooy put Huddersfield two goals ahead at Vicarage Road before Watford's Troy Deeney was sent off in the 33rd minute for a dangerous lunge on Colin Quaner.

Laurent Depoitre added a third for the visitors shortly after half-time only for Watford to threaten a comeback.

Huddersfield's Jonathan Hogg was shown a second yellow card on the hour mark and Abdoulaye Doucoure reduced the deficit with a sweet half-volley in the 68th minute.

But Doucoure fouled Depoitre in the box late on and Mooy converted from the penalty spot.

Huddersfield, who had not scored an away goal since the opening weekend, moved up to 11th in the standings.

Ninth-place Watford have now lost three league games in a row and four of their last five.
