Former Newcastle United defender Daryl Janmaat starred in Watford’s brilliant 4-1 win against the Premier League holders Chelsea at Vicarage Road on Monday night, and Magpies fans were all left saying the same thing about their ex-man.
The 28-year-old scored his third goal in 13 top flight appearances this season in a more advanced role on the right-hand side, cutting in from the wing, playing a one-two with Roberto Pereyra before beating another couple of Blues players and then producing an impressive finish with his left foot.
The Netherlands international now has more goals in 43 matches for the Hornets than he did in 77 outings for the Toon, and his performance against Antonio Conte’s men certainly left the St James’ Park faithful confused about why he never showed the same quality for them.
Newcastle supporters were quick to have their say on the Dutchman’s display via social media, and while one said “pretty sure Janmaat never did anything close to that for Newcastle”, another questioned “when did Janmaat ever do anything like that for us?”
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Whaaaa?? Why couldn't Janmaat do that at #NUFC?! Great goal v. Chelses, stick it to 'em!! ⚽⚽⚽
