Watford came from behind to win for the second time in a week when they beat Newcastle United on Saturday.

A poor first-half was followed by a big improvement, as Troy Deeney struck twice form the spot to overcome Dwight Gayle's opener.

Here's how we assessed their individual efforts.

Ben Foster - 7

Made some big saves, including from Allan Saint-Maximin and Dwight Gayle to keep the Hornets in the game. Once again was vocal throughout.

Adam Masina - 7

Kept the tricky Saint-Maximin quiet for the most part. Worked hard once again.

Craig Dawson - 6

Was poor for the goal, but recovered well and played much better in the second-half. Made an excellent tackle on Miguel Almiron to prevent a shot on goal.

Christian Kabasele - 6

Made some questionable decisions in the first-half. Had less to do after the break as Newcastle slowed down in attack, but still made some important tackles and blocks.

Kiko Femenia - 7

Didn't give Matt Ritchie much space to operate in and did well to win the first penalty. Almost set up Danny Welbeck in the first-half with a sweeping cross.

Etienne Capoue - 5.5

Was one of the main culprits for Newcastle finding so much space in the box for the goal. Still finding life hard after the restart.

Will Hughes - 7.5

Once again a stand out performer. Battles incredibly hard in the centre and is a vital link between the attacking players and the defenders. Surely one of the first names on the team sheet at the moment.

Abdoualye Doucoure - 5.5

Like Capoue is still looking rusty and finding it difficult to make the impact he is capable of. 

Danny Welbeck - 7

Doubled up with Masina to keep Saint-Maximin quiet and was unlucky not to score when his shot hit the post and was scrambled off the line.

Ismaila Sarr - 6

Had Danny Rose worried throughout, but still needs to improve his end product amd consistency. 

Troy Deeney - 8

Managed the pressure well to score twice from the spot and caused the Newcastle defenders plenty of problems after the break. His first-half performance wasn't up to much, but he rolled his socks up and to his credit emerged a much improved player after the break.


Tom Cleverley - N/A

Arrived too late to make an impact.

Andre Gray - N/A

Arrived too late to make an impact.
