Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha is incredulous after being booked for diving against Watford

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson insists Wilfired Zaha's performance href='http://www.skysports.com/football/watford-vs-c-palace/390785' in his side's 2-1 defeat to Watford suffered as a outcome of Etienne Capoue's cynical early foul.

Palace started the game brightly and Etienne Capoue was booked for catching Zaha inside the first five minutes.

However, the feeling around Palace is positive and the London outfit will hope for a positive results against a Watford side that have started the season strongly.

It is the first time they have begun with three wins out of three in the top tier of English football, keeping them right up among the early pacemakers.

With the win Watford remain ideal with nine points from nine, while Palace stay on three points.

Hodgson was among those who felt Capoue could have been sent off for the challenge on Zaha.

Public anger about the case and the safety of ride-hailing was running high on Chinese social media over the weekend. However, the driver had altered the car's licence plate before the trip, the company said.

You dive in front of professional footballers in a bid to mock them, and you celebrate with the Watford players when they score a goal, like you're one of them, rather than a hornet. At the other end McArthur again broke free but a wonderful last-ditch tackle from Holebas denied him.

The pressure increased as Daryl Janmaat went similarly close on the stroke of half-time but his stabbed effort, after Andre Gray laid the ball off to him towards the edge of the area, went narrowly wide of the left post.

Pereyra gave Watford the lead after the break as a powerful run forward from Capoue saw the Argentinian cut in and curl home a beauty into the far corner. 1-0.

A fortunate second from Jose Holebas, which appeared to be an overhit cross, then secured Watford's third victory from three on a disappointing afternoon for their visitors, who scored late on through Zaha.

Palace wasted a glorious chance to draw in the final seconds of added time when Joel Ward headed wide from a corner after being left unmarked.

But Watford held on for the win as they remain the surprise package of the opening month of the season.
