LONDON, Sept 10: Watford came from two goals down to beat West Ham 4-2 in the English Premier League on Saturday for its first win of the season under new manager Walter Mazzarri.

Michail Antonio scored in the fifth and 33rd minutes for West Ham to move up to four goals for the season — all of them headers — before his team imploded in its second league match at the Olympic Stadium.

Watford scored four goals in a 22-minute spell around halftime, starting with Odion Ighalo's deflected shot in the 41st minute.

Troy Deeney pounced on a defensive mistake to make it 2-2 in first-half injury time, Etienne Capoue scored his third goal of the season, and Jose Holebas finished off the comeback with a low shot that West Ham goalkeeper Adrian should have saved.
