Watford took a big step towards becoming the "best of the rest" of the Premier League by taking seventh place with a 2-1 victory at Huddersfield on Saturday.

Gerard Deulofeu was in the double (4.81) for the Hornets, replacing the suspended Troy Deeney, with great effect – the Spaniard scored eight goals in his last nine games.

Huddersfield's sad season is ending with a groan – this was their seventh consecutive defeat, even though Karlan Grant got a late consolation (90 + 2).

Watford can qualify for the Europa League by winning the FA Cup final but if Manchester City wins at Wembley, the Europa League place will be handed over to the team that finished seventh in the league.

Huddersfield: (6), Smith (6), Kongolo (7), Schindler (6), Durm (6), Mooy (7), Bacuna (6), Hogg (4), Mbenza (7), Mounie Kachunga (5)

Subs: Daly (7), Lowe (6), Grant (7)

Watford: Foster (7), Cathcart (7), Mariappa (8), Masina (7), Doucoure (7), Capou (7), Femenia (7), Hughes (7), Sema Deulofeu (8)

Subs: Success (7)

Man of the game: Gerard Deulofeu

How Deulofeu inspired the Hornets …

Watford began with great intent and was ahead in four minutes.

Jonathan Hogg wasted possession under heavy pressure from Watford, and after Abdoulaye Doucoure's shot was blocked, Deulofeu was on hand to make a fine effort for the far corner.

It was the same technique he used against the Wolves at Wembley.

In addition to Isaac Mbenza, who tested Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster with a great attack effort, Huddersfield's threat of attack was non-existent.

Huddersfield The 18-year-old midfielder, Matty Daly, debuted for the first time shortly before half-time, instead of Hogg, who had fought and was in a reserve.

Watford always seemed in control, but was given a scare when Steve Mounie's shot passed over the crossbar.

Deulofeu sealed Watford's victory when he quietly ended after the goal from Isaac Success was eliminated by Jonas Lossl.

Grant, a 66-minute substitute for Mounie, waved home in injury time to leave fans home with something to cheer on, but in fact it was another dismal result for Jan Siewert's men.

Man of the Game: Gerard Deulofeu

Who else? Despite having suffered an ankle injury in recent weeks, Deulofeu looked like a man still at the top of his game in front of the goal. It took him only four minutes to take home a silky finish with his chest and was in the right place at the right time to shoot at home, which turned out to be the second crucial goal.
