Joshua King felt he had a point to prove in Watford’s 5-2 win at Goodison Park, where the striker bagged a hat-trick.
King, formerly of Everton, started the game up front and scored the first three goals of his Watford career to help the Hornets win for the first time away at the home of the Toffees.
The forward didn’t feel it was ever in doubt that Watford would get something from the game, even when they had gone behind twice.
“I don’t know what it is,” he said.
“I felt like when they scored the first goal no-one put their head down or gave up. When Richarlison scored I had the same feeling, and when [Juraj] Kucka scored I just knew we were going to get something. We were all saying it in the huddle when we were celebrating that we were going to take this game if we were smart.
