Nathan Ake has admitted he enjoyed facing former club Watford on Monday.
Ake spent last season on-loan at Vicarage Road.
“It was good to see some familiar faces on the pitch,” he told the Watford Observer. “It’s good to play against Watford again and they played a good game. We are not happy with the goals conceded, but we are pleased to get the win.
“They gave us a good test. They’re strong and they’ve got really good players. Watford is a really good team and I still follow them.
“I think the last couple of weeks have been a bit more down. But hopefully I think this season has been really good for them, they’re safe again and sometimes they play really good football.”
