The Hornets’ footballer believes their supporters can be a key part of the FA Cup Final between his team and Manchester City.

Watford and Manchester City are set to play in the FA Cup Final this weekend at Wembley Stadium.

And for Hornets’ footballer Etienne Capoue the English Premier League Champions are a big rival so his team will need all the support it can get from the fans.

“Everyone says we have zero chance – so we are going to take it,” said the Frenchman the club’s official website.

“Everyone says Man City is a top team, everyone thinks they are going to win it easily, so we are going to try and beat them.”

“We have to stay focused for 90 minutes, that is the most important thing for us,” he continued.

“When we played away against Man City we played a very good first half, and the second half started with a wrong decision from the referee. That killed us mentally, but if we can do it [again] in this way we can be dangerous.”

He added: “Nobody is expecting us to win, so we are working on our side very quietly. We are going to give 200 percent because we’ve got the chance [to win].”

“It is normal for them to win every game, but we are going to try, we are going to give everything. Nobody expects us to give a good game, but I think we are in a good position because of that.”

“In every position, they have two top players, so we need the 12th man. That’s it,” he concluded.
