Ismaila Sarr has just scored a goal that might be worthy of winning the Goal of the Season award. His spectacular effort gave Watford the lead against West Brom in the Championship.

The Watford away end erupted, and cameras showed goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann smiling broadly. As for Ismaila Sarr, the young talent was in ecstasy. What a hit that was!

Rob Edwards took over as manager from Roy Hodgson over the summer, and he is one of the division’s youngest managers.
West Brom manager Steve Bruce has a 24-year managerial career, and Edwards is a great fan of him.
“Steve [Bruce] is someone I have a lot of respect for,” Rob Edwards said before the match.
“I’ve worked with and under a lot of coaches and there are things I thought were good and things where I thought I’d do it differently.
“I have to be myself and try to be the best I can be but, of course, I will continue to learn from everyone I’m working with.
“There is more I don’t know than do know so I have a lot to learn but a lot of my experiences have got me to this point and am looking forward to hopefully being in a better position at the end of this season.”
