Richarlison of Watford and Deandre Yedlin of Newcastle United battle for the ball
Watford continued their fine away form in the Premier League with a 3-0 thumping of Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.
Marco Silva's men had beat West Ham United 2-0 at Vicarage Road last weekend to snap a run of three straight defeats, and added another win at St. James' Park.
The Hornets opened the scoring when Will Hughes – who bagged a goal and an assist against West Ham – swept the ball home from Marvin Zeegelaar's cross, and Zeegelaar then crossed for Newcastle defender DeAndre Yedlin to put through his own net.

Newcastle continued to struggle in the second half, and in-form winger Richarlison romped away down the left flank before crossing for Andre Gray to make it 3-0 for the Hornets, sealing a superb win.
Marco Silva's men continue to impress in the Premier League, and the Everton-linked boss has Richarlison to thank once again, with the Brazilian's superb start to life in England continuing.
The 20-year-old forward, signed from Fluminense over the summer, has hit five goals and three assists this season, with the London Evening Standard recently claiming that Tottenham Hotspur are now attempting to land him.

After the game, Watford fans took to Twitter to hail Richarlison's performance, suggesting that fans should enjoy him whilst he is still at Vicarage Road, as he will be moving on in 2018.
Newcastle fans also hailed the Brazilian, with a number of supporters calling him a 'baller' and 'an absolute diamond' whilst making comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo after another superb display.
We will not keep richarlison after this season. Make the most of seeing him whilst we can #watfordfc— Tom Rice (@TomRice7) November 26, 2017
Was particularly impressed with Zeegelaar and Richarlison, Kiko, Cleverley, Doucoure also quality. Defence was solid. Britos and Gray the weakest links for me, but we had more than enough to beat Newcastle. #watfordfc— MacHornet (@macshieldsgaz) November 25, 2017
Richarlison! What a player. Chases that down and then a beauty of a cross. #WatfordFC— Hanson Ho (@bidetofevil) November 25, 2017
Just watched the highlights.— James (@JamesWatfordFC) November 26, 2017
Very strong performance from the boys. Newcastle were poor but we were brilliant - credits to Richarlison and Zeegalaar on the wing. They were outstanding.#watfordfc
Watford are a tidy side. Been a big Marco Silva fan for a while, but Richarlison is a find, pushing Will Hughes further up the pitch a master stroke & Andre Gray is proving to be a handful, allowing the 3 behind to roam & punish teams. Top 10 easily. #NUFC #WFC— Adam C. (@adamecurry) November 25, 2017
I think richarlison might well be the signing of the season. Absolute baller #watfordfc— Gaz Tone (@gaztone90) November 25, 2017
Was at Watford match,Richarlison was rather impressive for someone so young,has a similar vibe to the original @Ronaldo— ChrisT (@TransportChris) November 25, 2017
Ref was poor,but not an excuse, @NUFC were just predictable,very blunt in front of goal,would rather see Mitro.
