Watford fans react on Twitter to Nathan Ake's performance v Norwich

The Hornets faithful were delighted with the 20-year-old's performance on Saturday afternoon.

Watford fans were delighted with Nathan Ake's performance against Norwich City on Saturday afternoon. Quique Sanchez Flores' side were comfortable 2-0 winners against the Canaries, illustrating the gap that exists between Watford and Norwich right now.

While Alex Neil's side are still near the bottom end of the Premier League table, the Hornets are up to ninth after their two-goal victory.

Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo were among the goals and received plenty of the plaudits. But there was also heavy praise for Nathan Ake. Indeed, the 20-year-old was solid once again in defence - and even battled on after suffering a spectacular fall.

Many fans watched on in disbelief as the on-loan youngster shrugged off his fall and even more fans, it seems, want Ake signed on a permanent basis.

Next up for Watford is a Premier League trip to Sunderland, while Norwich host Everton during next Saturday's early kick-off. Will both sides' current fortunes continue?

Until then, here's how Hornets fans reacted on Twitter to another strong display from Ake. Is signing the Chelsea man full-time a no-brainer?
