Prior to the appointment of Pearson, Sarr who moved to England in the summer, managed just a goal in nine matches for the Hornets.
His contribution at the Vitality Stadium took his tally to two goals and two assists after 15 Premier League games this season.
On Tuesday, the Senegalese attacker will be looking to help 19th-placed Watford continue their five-game unbeaten run when they visit Tranmere Rovers for the return leg of their FA Cup fixture.
