Gabriele Angella bagged a brace in the Championship as Udinese satellite club Watford beat Bournemouth 6-1.
Gianfranco Zola’s side got off to a spectacular start with their first home game at Vicarage Road, which also saw Troy Deeney score a hat-trick. Lewis McGugan completed the rout.
The Hornets are now top of the League following their victory away to Birmingham, on a par with Blackpool and Nottingham Forest.
Despite being a defender, 24-year-old Angella has already scored three goals in as many games this season, having also netted in the League Cup.
Watford are owned by the Pozzo family, who also run Udinese and Spanish side Granada.
