Watford continued their 100% start to the Premier League season with a shock 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
Javi Gracia’s side were talked about as being a relegation candidate in the pre-season, but four wins from four has elevated the Hornets to only one of three teams left in the league with a perfect start, alongside Liverpool and Chelsea.
While Watford goalscorers Troy Deeney and Craig Cathcart have deservedly taken the plaudits, fans took time out to praise left-back Jose Holebas on yet another stellar performance.
The 34-year-old registered two assists on the day and has been superb for the Vicarage Road outfit this season, providing a goal and four assists in total.
Watford fans will now go into the international break full of confidence that their side can have a successful campaign.

Once the fixtures improve Watford have some appealing options:
🔸 Ben Foster – Looking good for a 4.5 million keeper
🔸Holebas – 4 assists all ready and on set pieces!
🔸Deeney – Has started the season very well
🔸Hughes – Only 5 million and quite attacking! #FPL

5 – Jose Holebas has been directly involved in five Premier League goals so far this season (one goal, four assists) – more than any other player in the competition. Form.

It's actually amazing the improvement on Jose Holebas. He's 34!!

One of the strangest games I've ever seen. Tottenham dominated but failed to create any chances whilst Watford weren't at the races until the 70th minute. Two quality balls from Holebas ultimately made the difference.

Most assists in Europe's top five leagues this season:
