Watford got the better of Newcastle 3-0 away from home at St. James’ Park in the Premier League last Saturday afternoon.
It was one of the Magpies’ worst performances of the season and has enhanced their chances of going down to the Championship at the end of the season.
Former Celtic and Arsenal forward Nicholas was following the match, and he believes that Marco Silva’s Watford could have scored as many as eight goals against Rafael Benitez’s side.
“This could have been eight,” Nicholas told Sky Sports while discussing Watford’s win against Newcastle.
Nicholas’s comments are damning about Newcastle, and those who watched the match will agree with him.
Benitez’s side were desperately poor against Watford, and it is important that they bounce back and pick up maximum points in their next game, which is against West Bromwich Albion away from home at The Hawthorns in the Premier League this evening.
