Everton fans have been left bemused after Gerard Deulofeu produced a match winning performance against Chelsea on Monday evening.
After failing to make the grade back at boy-hood club Barcelona, Deulofeu was quickly sold to Watford in January to gain sufficient playing time.
His return to England comes after just six months at Barca following a return from Premier League side Everton.
Considered a flop at Goodison Park during his time at the club, Everton fans have now retracted those comments and blamed former boss Ronald Koeman for his poor performances.
Their change in opinion comes after the Spanish international produced a 10 out of 10 performance against champions Chelsea, scoring in a 4-1 win for his new side.
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

Endless tweets were seen on Twitter from Everton fans after the performance and win for Watford, one which took the Vicarage Road side up-to 11th in the Premier League standings, just one point shy of the Toffees.
Deulofeu will return to the Camp Nou in the summer, but it is expected he will be offered out to other European and English clubs.
