Watford v Norwich City: Danny Welbeck scores stunning overhead kick


Danny Welbeck hadn’t scored a Premier League goal since August 2018 - and then he went and scored an overhead kick.

The former Manchester United and Arsenal forward gave Watford a 2-1 lead against Norwich in spectacular fashion.

Watford fell behind in the fourth minute of the game but were level just six minutes later when Craig Dawson equalised.

And in what is a crucial game at the bottom of the table, Welbeck put Watford ahead with a special goal in the 55th minute.

He connected sweetly with a falling ball and Tim Krul could do nothing to stop it.


His goal sparked plenty of reaction from football fans on Twitter.

Put that in the running to win the Premier League Goal of the Season.

Welbeck's goal wasn't the only brilliant strike we witnessed on Tuesday - Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha scored a 25-yard screamer against Chelsea.

Welbeck's goal proved to be the winner as Watford secured a vital three points.

The Hornets are now four points above the relegation zone, which will be of some comfort to manager Nigel Pearson.

The next few weeks are vital in Watford's bid to stay in the Premier League, with Pearson calling on his players to embrace the challenge of a relegation battle.

"Look, all these games now are big and we just have to embrace the challenge," he said, per Sky Sports.

"The important thing for us is to detach ourselves from all the ifs and buts and make sure our performance is as good as it can be."


Pearson continued: "There is a desire to improve on our performances and results for sure.

"The important thing is that we get the balance right between being calm about the situation but also recognise the necessity to perform and pick points up."
