‘Player of the Year award already’ – Plenty of Watford fans react to player’s contribution in win at Derby

Published

Watford picked up their third league win from five games this season on Friday night, with a 1-0 win over Derby County at Pride Park.

In a tight game of few chances, it was one moment of magic that decided the game in the Hornets’ favour.

With just under 15 minutes remaining in the game, Joao Pedro picked up the ball just outside the Derby penalty area, and after setting himself in position, the 19-year-old Brazilian curled a stunning strike into the top far corner of David Marshall’s goal.

That strike was enough to secure all three points for Vladimir Ivic’s side, lifting them to fifth place in the early Championship standings.

Pedro now has two goals to his name in the league this season, and not surprisingly, plenty of Watford fans were keen to sing the teenager’s praises as they took to Twitter to react to his latest big contribution for the club.

Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
