The Hornets weren’t promoted immediately, but had to wait and watch rivals Middlesbrough lose 4-3 to Fulham and Norwich City draw 1-1 with Rotherham to confirm that they will be playing in the top flight next season. Fellow promotion chasers Bournemouth can can also all but guarantee Premier League football if they win their next game as well.

The South East club will be especially grateful to their strikers for this achievement. Captain Troy Deeney has netted 21 times in the league, while Odion Ighalo has 20 in the second tier of English football this season. They will also have to thank manager Slavisa Jokanovic, who was only appointed in October. The Serbian has led them on an incredible run of 15 wins in their last 20 matches.
