Controversial Doucoure goal earns Watford a draw against Southampton

James Ward-Prowse had scored twice in the first half before Andre Gray pulled one back - and Saints were crestfallen when Doucoure's equaliser was allowed to stand.

The midfielder broke the deadlock after 20 minutes as Southampton sought revenge for September's 2-0 loss to the same opponents at St Mary's Stadium.

Mauricio Pellegrino's side doubled their lead just before the interval when, after a quick counter attack, Dusan Tadic found Ward-Prowse with a slide-rule pass and the midfielder slammed home his second.

Though Marco Silva's charges fought back to earn a point.

A long ball found Daryl Janmaat in the area and he crashed a shot off the crossbar.

Nine Premier League games without a win for Mauricio Pellegrino has seen the Argentine tipped as the next managerial casualty, but his side got off to the flawless start with James Ward-Prowse handing them some breathing space in the opening half. But for long ball, second ball, they've got strong players and every single action is risky.

Deeney was involved in the controversial equalizer, heading the ball across the six-yard box where Doucoure arrived late to get in front of goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and push it into the net. It looked as though that would prove to be the highlight of the afternoon for home fans.
