MICHAEL CHOPRA is hopeful his exploits for Watford will catch the eye of Newcastle boss Sir Bobby Robson.

The Magpies sanctioned the teenage striker`s loan move to Watford late last month, and he hit the headlines with a four-goal salvo as The Hornets crushed Burnley at the weekend.

The striker will be in the spotlight again at the weekend, when Watford take on Southampton in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, and he is hoping Robson will cast his eye over his remaining games for the Vicarage Road outfit.

Chopra said: "The semi-final will be the biggest game of my career and hopefully I can do really well.

"If I can keep playing well here, it will help me get more of a chance at Newcastle.

"There are lots of good strikers in the squad, but hopefully I could get some Premiership action."
