As José Holebas joins the Hornets’ 100 club, take a look back at the Greek left-back’s century of Watford appearances with some key facts, stats and images.
The Hornets confirmed the signing of Holebas on a three-year deal from Roma in July 2015.
He made his first-team debut on the opening day of the 2015/16 season, as Watford marked their return to the Premier League with a 2-2 draw at Everton.
Holebas thought he’d scored his first goal during the return fixture against the Toffees, a 1-1 draw in April 2016, but his header was later given as a Séamus Coleman own-goal.
His first strike in Watford colours did eventually come in September 2016, the left-back completing a 4-2 win at West Ham’s London Stadium after the Hornets had earlier trailed by two goals.
A month later he scored the spectacular winner as Walter Mazzarri’s side left Middlesbrough with a 1-0 victory.
Across Holebas’ 100 outings he’s been shown 34 yellow cards – including 14 in the 2016/17 season alone – but his only red card came in the Carabao Cup tie with Bristol City in the opening weeks of 2017/18.
He’s made 15 assists for Watford, six of which have come this season – a tally bettered by no other defender in the Premier League so far this term.
The 34-year-old’s three goals to-date in 2018/19 include a winner against Crystal Palace, an equaliser at Southampton and a Premier League Goal of the Month-nominated strike against Cardiff.
His Man of the Match display in the 1-0 win over Everton on Saturday was his 100th match in Watford colours, a total which includes 95 outings in the Premier League (three as a sub), three starts in the FA Cup and one in the Carabao Cup.
In Premier League action he’s made 3,235 passes, 193 tackles, 72 shots and 117 fouls.
