Former Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu made a spectacular return to English football as he helped Watford beat defending Premier League champions Chelsea 4-1 at Vicarage Road.
Hornets fans were understandably delighted with the impact their new loan signing made during his man-of-the-match performance.
Deulofeu won the penalty that put Watford 1-0 up in the first half and then scored the third goal as the home side completed a resounding win against their fellow Londoners.
The former Barcelona midfielder is back in the Premier League having been with Everton â€“ first on loan and then permanently â€“ between 2013 and 2017.
And while Watford fans raved about Deulofeuâ€™s performance, Toffees fans were also quick to take to social media to make their feelings known.
During his time at Goodison Park, the former Everton attacking midfielder made 73 appearances in all competitions, scoring eight goals.
He then went on loan to AC Milan before Barcelona brought him back to the Nou Camp.
Deulofeuâ€™s return to the spotlight comes just two days after Everton were hammered 5-1 by Arsenal in the Premier League.
Toffees fans were also quick to point out that Ademola Lookman, who headed out of the club during the transfer window, scored the winner for his new club, Red Bull Leipzig, against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday.
As a result, some Everton supporters chose to criticise the clubâ€™s transfer policy while others stood by the club, arguing that the clubâ€™s signing of Theo Walcott, for example, outweighs the loss of Deulofeu.
There are mixed views over the Spain internationalâ€™s time at Everton; while some fans claim the club failed to get the most out of him, others claim the management were right to allow him to leave.
It will be interesting to see whether those opinions will begin to shift if he builds on his fine start for the Hornets.
Here is a selection of the Everton tweets about his Watford home debut.
@TheBlueRoomEFC not only Lookman scoring the winner, but it appeared Deulofeu was excellent against Chelsea, this is so Everton!! You couldn't make it up!!

Everton should have put way more effort in keeping Deulofeu. Watford will probably end up ten points higher now than Everton.

A Chelsea manager sacking on the way! Deulofeu on the scoreboard, another Everton disaster move!

Great business Walsh/Alladyce.. Deulofeu and lookman doing the business but weren't good enough for us apparently.. oh to have them back

Unpopular opinion but if Deulofeu plays like he has today all season, we have to go in for him in the summer

Seeing deulofeu score in the premier league and itâ€™s not for Everton hurts my feelings

Depresses me seeing deulofeu show his potential that Everton couldnâ€™t unlock…

Deulofeu had a brilliant home debut for Watford. Everton did not want him. Why would we need a player with spectacular individual skills, creativity & control? Much better to have 8 players booting the ball upfield from the penalty area. #AllardyceOut #EFC

At Everton, Deulofeu looked permanently unfit + always gasping for https://t.co/UyRa9voNWD Watford, he runs non stop + scores a last minute solo goal.What goes on at Finch Farm is a total mystery!

Walcott > Deulofeu
Sort out the bulk of our team and any discussion about Deulofeu will be redundant

What Everton definitely didnâ€™t need this season was Deulofeu and Lookman. #efc
