Danny Welbeck secured a big win for Watford in their quest for Premier League survival.

Watford moved four points clear of the relegation zone with a much-needed win over basement boys Norwich City at Vicarage Road, thanks to Danny Welbeck’s late bicycle kick.

But the game started so differently – Emiliano Buendia got his first goal for Norwich on the fourth minute with a superb strike.

It took just 6 minutes for Watford to claw them back with Craig Dawson on the score sheet again.

It stayed level till after the half time break when Danny Wellbeck capitalised on a poor clearance by Max Aarons to score a spectacular Escape to victory style overhead kick.

The canaries had a late chance to grab an equaliser, but 19-year-old Adam Idah shot wide from five yards out when sliding in at the back post.

That result leaves the hornets four points clear of Aston Villa and Bournemouth and level on points with West Ham having played one more game than them all.

The agony continues for canary fans despite remaining rooted to the bottom it’s still mathematically possible for Norwich to stay up.

But that maths involves at least four miracles.
