I thought Fred was great tonight. I love his energy and you can see he's a real team man.

Agree entirely. He is really coming into his own.

He is a real battler, shows great character. It wasn’t so evident tonight, but he does a lot to drive us on - seems to link up better with Anwar than Trez.

He was ok. Awkward on the ball at times yet also has some lovely touches.

There was at least twice though when the CM had the ball and he had space to drive into to provide an option, and he just didn't do it.

Some of those tackles today: lovely. And only one where he had to recover after being caught on the wrong side. His performance shut them down on that side. 

Their right back knew about Fred’s tooth injury imo: went into him when going up for headers. Thankfully he showed what a tough b*stard he is: love the guy 

Commentary team obviously didn't know about it, you could see it a mile off! 

Couple of eye catching tackles, great cross for target, another solid performance

He was clearly in a fair bit of pain, but by god he's a battler. He's a very easy player to like.

He posted a pic of him on social media with his face swollen midweek with tooth problems.

Poor bastard seemed to constantly be getting smacked and clattered on the same side today as well. lol

I think the Watford players will have known about these tooth problems and targeted him. Definitely one of my favourite players at the club right now!

I'm out of reactions but it's comedy gold (Not for him really but you know)

Wonder if he had a painkilling injection or anything?

Warrior.

Only issue I have with him is that he's caught out by the through ball inside him a bit too often. Deulofeu today for the goal and Trossard on Saturday.

The goal yeah I know what you mean.

Hopefully he's bawling at Konsa to drop, because I think he watching Doucoure come round the back. You can see he's hanging off Deeney in case it's clipped all the way to the back post where he is.

When Konsa doesn't move, priorities have to take over though and he should probably have gone in to meet Deeney earlier.

A lot of criticism has been made towards the recruitment side (some justified) but this signing has been very good for the club. Fee, age etc. 

Even more amazing that he was signed for the Championship and not the top flight

He played well. 
Although I do wonder why he was marking Deeney at set pieces.

I like him but he was clearly at fault for Deeney’s goal. He let Deeney drift off him and amble into the 6 yard box for a simple free header when he could see that Konsa was wasn’t picking him up. He needs to improve his defensive awareness and he’ll be a good player.

no he wasnt

its a back 3 vs 1 striker, he can come round as cover behind the man to put pressure on if he's free but konsa has to be goal side, konsa's been attracted to the near post thinking that hause would be beaten rather than the cross coming in, its his poor marking

you don't have 3 CBs and then your RB marking their 1 striker

in a 4 id agree but konsa has to hold the shape, he's in no mans land

Nope, you’re wrong. Fred was marking him at the time and let him run off him into space. Watch it back, it’s very clear. Just because a right wing back doesn’t usually mark a forward doesn’t mean he wasn’t on this occasion.
