The Senegal international made his first appearance for the Hornets but could not help his side from losing to the Hammers

Ismaila Sarr made his long-awaited debut for Watford in their 3-1 loss to West Ham United in a Premier League game on Saturday.

The 21-year-old forward, who joined the Hornets in the summer from Ligue 1 side Rennes, made his first appearance, against the Hammers as a second-half substitute.

The Senegal international replaced Gerard Deulofeu in the 77th minute of the encounter but could not rescue his side from the loss with Mark Noble’s effort and Sebastian Haller’s brace rendering Andre Gray’s strike a consolation.

The defeat saw the Hornets drop to the bottom of the table having failed to secure points in their opening three games.

Sarr will hope to start when Watford take on Coventry City in a League Cup tie on Tuesday.
