The Watford manager believes their rival’s low-form is not good enough to give the Hornets a win in today’s English Premier League match.

Watford and Fulham will face off tonight in the English Premier League.

Both teams are in a different position in the EPL table, with Watford in the tenth place with 43 points, and Fulham at the bottom in 19th place with only 17 points.

And Hornets boss Javi Gracia still remembers the first time they met their opponents this season.

“I remember perfectly,” said Javi Gracia to the club’s official website.

“It was a game where we dominated the first half and we could have scored more goals. We didn’t and after, at the end of the game, we suffered. We didn’t defend far enough away from our goal as that’s what you have to do with Mitrovic.”

“If they dominate, they will have chances to score from every lateral cross. It was a shame we only got a point,” he added.

“In a long period they have [had] problems and so the next game is very important for them.”

“I am very sorry for them but it’s football. We are professionals and I’ve been in different situations when I was sacked, when I lost an important game and when relegated with my hometown team,” he continued.

“I know what this is. I prefer to focus on my club, my team and try to do our best.”

“To achieve our highest points total ever [in the Premier League] would be something special,” said Gracia.

“The moment when we achieved our first target in February, to remain in the Premier League, was something amazing for us. Now everybody can forget our main target. We want to make a step forward, we want to improve the best position in the table – not to stay on 46 points, but to improve.”
