Watford were left humiliated on Saturday evening, as they saw their first FA Cup final in 35 years turn into a nightmare as they lost 6-0 to Manchester City at Wembley Stadium, and after the match their fans turned on a man who could have altered the state of the contest completely at one point.

The Hornets went into the clash knowing they would have to be at their very best and get a bit of luck along the way, if they were to win their first major piece of silverware, and secure a place in Europe next season as a result.

They almost got off to the perfect start with Watford attacker Roberto Pereyra got on the end of a fine move on the counter attack, only to fire straight at Ederson when he really should have scored.

While the Hornets would have wanted to take encouragement from that opportunity, their heads actually dropped and it was their opponents who sensed vulnerability and put them to the sword.

Watford were never in the cup final after that, as a brace from Gabriel Jesus after the opener from David Silva, along with a Kevin de Bruyne strike and two more for Raheem Sterling earned the treble winners a totally emphatic victory.

After the match Hornets fans took to social media to react to their defeat with Pereyra very much the attention of their wrath.

If his missed chance was not bad enough for the Watford supporters, many accused him of bottling a challenge which led to City scoring their third goal, and that has led to their patience finally running thin with the attacker.

Pereyra began the season in fine form for the Hornets, but things have been very average for him since then, and a number of fans suggested they would not miss him if he doesn’t play for the club again.
