WATFORD, England: Watford remained without a victory after the opening eight games of the Premier League season after being held to a 0-0 home draw by Sheffield United on Saturday.
Andre Gray missed an open goal from close range early on and Danny Welbeck wasted a one-on-one chance in the second half, as Watford’s winless streak in the league extended to a 12th match.
After a match lacking in quality, there was one positive for Watford’s players as they secured their first clean sheet in the Premier League since a 1-0 victory against Everton at Vicarage Road 238 days ago — a run of 20 matches.
Watford stayed in last place. Sheffield United moved onto nine points from its opening eight matches.
