Deulofeu hat-trick leads Watford to 5-1 rout of Cardiff

CARDIFF, Wales (AP) Gerard Deulofeu claimed his first hat-trick in English football and captain Troy Deeney scored twice as Watford strolled to a 5-1 victory at Cardiff in the Premier League Friday.

Former Barcelona winger Deulofeu fired the visitors into a first-half lead before netting twice in as many minutes just after the hour-mark.

Deeney then put the game beyond relegation-haunted Cardiff with his first league goals since the start of January.
