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.
