Watford fans react on Twitter to Jose Manuel Jurado's performance v Newcastle

The 29-year-old Spaniard has received plenty of criticism this season but drew praise from the Hornets faithful on Saturday.

Watford fans were delighted with Jose Manuel Jurado's performance against Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.

Quique Sanchez Flores' side would no doubt have been delighted to put an end to a run of four defeats in a row - and it had a bit of de ja vu about it as they beat Newcastle 2-1 once again.

And it was Jurado who caught the eye in particular as far as Watford fans were concerned at Vicarage Road.

Indeed, the Spaniard has received a lot of criticism so far this season but was praised for his role in the win against the Magpies.

Jurado was played in behind the strikers and many commented on a much more natural performance from the 29-year-old when he was allowed to play through the middle, as opposed to out wide left.

Some Watford fans were still criticial of the Spaniard but others can't quite figure out where the negativity is coming from. Here's how supporters reacted to his display against Newcastle on Twitter:
