Chalobah, Okaka return as Watford defeat Reading

Watford have defeated Reading 2-0 in the Carabao Cup second round.

18-year-old debutante Domingos Quina scored a stunning goal to double Watford's advantage following an opening goal from Isaac Success.

The victory maintains the Hornets flawless start to the season. They currently sit fourth in the Premier League after wins over Burnley, Crystal Palace and Brighton.

And speaking after the game, Watford boss Javi Gracia was happy to have Nathaniel Chalobah and Stefano Okaka back in his team.

"I think he (Chalobah) deserves this game and Stefano Okaka as well because they are players who have had a long period out injured," Gracia said.

"It is good for them, good for the team, for me, for the club and the supporters. Today we have good news.

"It was not only a good result to continue in this competition, but we had players after a long period injured like Chalobah and Stefano Okaka back in the team.
