Relegation-threatened Watford have taken the lead over Everton thanks to Adam Masina’s first goal for the club.
Just ten minutes into the game, the Moroccan-born defender finished smartly from a difficult angle.
Delicious football. ?

The goal is a continuation of the Blues’ defensive woes, as in their last outing they threw two points away by conceding two goals late in injury time to Newcastle’s Florian Lejeune to turn a 2-0 lead into a 2-2 draw.
Nigel Pearson took over the reigns at Watford in December, and the Hornets have looked a side reborn since the new manager’s arrival.
In their last seven outings in the Premier League, the side placing second-bottom in the league have won four and drawn two games, only failing to get a result against Aston Villa on January 21.
