According to Hughes, Deulofeu had a great performance in yesterday’s 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town in the Premier League.

Yesterday was not the best day for Watford, the team didn’t play well, but thanks to Gerard Deulofeu, the team managed to get a 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town in the English Premier League.

And for teammate Will Hughes, Deulofeu was magnificent.

“We weren’t at our best, we weren’t at the level we should be, but it helps when we’ve got players like Deulofeu on the team who can do a bit of magic and finish the game for us,” Hughes was quoted by Four Four Two.

“We’ve got to be better than that, but Huddersfield gave it everything. They’re relegated and have nothing to lose, but we’ve got to improve going forward.”

“He’s got an interesting technique and when he connects with it it’s really nice to see,” he added.

“It’s not an easy technique to perfect and it doesn’t often go wrong for him to be fair. He’s been brilliant again and proved his worth to us.”

He continued: “It couldn’t be going much better at the moment. The FA Cup final at Wembley and seventh place, which I think is the highest we can be – the best of the rest.”

“There’s a big gap between seventh place and the top six, so that’s our aim, to finish as high as possible and not take our eye off that. The final is not a distraction.”
