Huddersfield Town recorded their first away victory in eight Premier League games with an impressive win over Watford at Vicarage Road.

Elias Kachunga opened the scoring from close range as early as the sixth minute before Aaron Mooy doubled the advantage for David Wagner's men in the 23rd minute.

The hosts then had captain Troy Deeney sent-off for a reckless lunge on Collin Quaner before the Terriers added a third early in the second-half.

Town then had their own skipper Jonathan Hogg dismissed for two bookable offences before Watford's Abdoulaye Doucoure pulled a goal back with a superb 25-yard half-volley.

However, it proved to be merely a consolation as Mooy converted a penalty in stoppage time after Doucoure fouled Laurent Depoitre in the area.

Have a look below at the quick-fire highlights from this afternoon's game at Vicarage Road.
