Things have picked up in intensity the last few minutes, end-to-end action now as both teams are looking to attack. Watford coming closest as Daryl Janmaat blasts one on goal that is expertly parried away by Alex McCarthy
14' SOUTHAMPTON STARTING TO ATTACK
Saints getting some time in the attacking third now, but the move breaks down after a wild, off-target blast from Cedric
10' GOOD BUILD UP FROM WATFORD
Some nice build-up play from the hosts as they appear to be warming to their task here, no threats on goal yet, but they look the more likely to score right now
