Hornets boss confident of turnaround
Javi Gracia insists he is ‘not worried’ about his Watford future despite his side claiming just two wins in 11 Premier League matches.
The Hornets travel to Everton on Monday night to take on a side led by ex-boss Marco Silva, while Richarlison, who spent a season at Vicarage Road, will also line up for the Toffees.
Silva was sacked in January after just one victory in 11 games, with Watford blaming an approach by Everton for their manager’s services as sparking their decline in form.
Current Watford boss Gracia insisted his side will not be motivated to get one over their old manager on Monday and also claimed he remains unfazed by the Hornets’ lean spell.
‘In my opinion, we are playing well; I like to be demanding of my players because in this way we will improve, we’ll have more options to improve our results as well,’ said Gracia.
‘But in this moment I’m not worried about if in the last games we weren’t able to get some points because I think we are in the right way, improving something; we are close to improving the results.
‘I think the players have confidence in the way we are playing, the way we are working in all the different games.
‘But they also know we need to improve something to have better results, to finish better.
‘We have created many chances in all the games. Maybe the last game was different, but in all the games we have played we were close to getting points or wins.’
