WATFORD, England (AP) - Watford opened up a six-point gap to the English Premier League relegation zone by beating Everton 1-0 thanks to Troy Deeney’s late goal on Saturday.

The striker scored from close range in the 79th minute to inflict a fourth straight away loss on Everton, which is alongside Watford in mid-table.

In the final minute, Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford went up for a corner and nodded the ball down toward goal but rival keeper Orestic Karnezis saved from Cenk Tosun’s acrobatic effort.

With a second straight home win, Watford was only four points from seventh place.
