Watford boss Marco Silva said his players played like they enjoyed themselves as his side eased to a 2-0 win against a lacklustre Southampton at St Mary's.
Superb strikes from Abdoulaye Doucoure and substitute Daryl Janmaat were enough to see off Saints as Watford's energetic pressing game condemned the hosts to another blank in front of goal.
"Congratulations for our boys and our fans," said Silva. "Fantastic atmosphere. Another away game and we really deserved the win.
"It's not easy to come here and do what we did, to control the match and to play like we did. Very, very good game. I didn't remember one chance for our opponent. Sometimes we can do something special like we did today. I'm really happy of course. I feel like my team played like they enjoyed the match."
Watford have not conceded a goal in the Premier League since drawing 3-3 with Liverpool at Vicarage Road on the season's opening weekend and rarely looked threatened at St Mary's as Nathaniel Chalobah put in a superb display in central midfield to nullify Saints.
"Three clean sheets in a row is very important to us it gives our team lots of confidence," said Silva. "I think we controlled these moments and we deserved three points."
The Hornets remain unbeaten under Silva and sit fourth in the early season Premier League standings.
