The Hornets boss knows the 4-1 victory over Fulham yesterday will boost the team’s morale ahead of the FA Cup Semifinal match.

Goals by Abdoulaye Doucoure, Will Hughes, Troy Deeney, and Kiko Fermenia lifted Watford to a 4-1 win over Fulham, relegating their rivals out of the English Premier League.

It will also help as a boost to the team’s morales, ahead of the FA Cup Semifinal match against the Wolverhampton Wanderers.

“It is something special for us, amazing to get 46 points, the best amount of points in the Premier League is something special and a very good reward for all these players,” coach Javi Gracia told EIR Sport.

“They were all working from the beginning and the players don’t want to stop there. They want to keep getting more points. They are very, very demanding.”

“All the players are tired after the effort today. I think the game was very, very tough in the first half,” he added.

“Fulham played much, much better than us in the first half, but as I said before the game, to win today was the best way to prepare for the next game.”

“The players have enough time to recover before the next important game,” he concluded.

Watford is currently in the eight positions of the English Premier League table with 46 points, thanks to 13 victories in 32 matches, seven draws, and 12 defeats.

The Hornets are set to play against the Wolves in the FA Cup Semifinals on Sunday after they have beaten Crystal Palace, Queens Park Rangers, Newcastle United, and Woking in the English competition.
