Fans react on Twitter to Troy Deeney's performance against Newcastle

Watford defeated Newcastle United 2-1 on Saturday but what did fans think of Troy Deeney's contribution?

Watford overcame Newcastle United 2-1 at St James’ Park on Saturday with striker Odion Ighalo scoring both goals for the visitors. But as important as the 26-year-old Nigerian was, he owed much to his strike partner Troy Deeney.

The Watford skipper is yet to score for his side this season but he has already provided three assists in six appearances, and his performance against Newcastle was one to be applauded.

Deeney is an unselfish player who will get his rewards in front of goal sooner rather than later, but after scoring 81 times for Watford to date it is his teammate Ighalo who is currently benefiting from his experience up front.

Watford’s latest victory took them up to ninth in the Premier League with nine points from their first six matches, and at this rate they will not be worrying too much about the prospect of relegation in the months ahead.

Following their latest match we took to Twitter to see what fans thought of Deeney’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
