Dennis 17, Sarr 63 & 80
CANARIES 1 WATFORD 3 - Key moments, ratings and stats
Daniel Farke may have been urging for a cauldron of positivity at Carrow Road against Watford, but the Canaries' performance during the 3-1 defeat left plenty to be desired.
Boos met the final whistle - some aimed at the Norwich City head coach.
Their dismal run in the top flight continues, with a brace from Ismalia Sarr condemning City to their 15th straight defeat at this level.
Watford arrived in NR1 having lost their last three matches without scoring a goal. The Hornets retain their dominant recent history against City, winning the last five matches against Daniel Farke's men.
Teemu Pukki, who was one of the players Farke opted to staunchly defend in the build-up to this game, did grab an equaliser on the cusp of half-time after a magnificent Mathias Normann pass, but good moments were few and far between for City.
They travel to Everton and Burnley prior to the October international break.

14 - Tom Cleverley's deep cross nearly picks out Juraj Kucka at the back post, but the Slovakian failed to make any contact

63 - GOAL WATFORD (SARR) - The visitors' break from a Norwich corner and despite the Canaries seemingly having numbers back, Josh King is permitted the space and time to deliver a low cross into the box. Sarr is on hand to turn the ball into the net. 1-2
76 - Christos Tzolis' cutback is struck well by Milot Rashica, but Foster is equal to the effort
82 - GOAL WATFORD (SARR) - McLean's skewered clearance gifts possession back to Watford. Cleverley slips King through on goal but Krul smothers his attempt. Sarr is there for an easy tap in to secure the three points for the Hornets. After a lengthy VAR check, the goal is correctly awarded. 1-3
