Mullins assesses Watford survival chances after damaging Man City loss

Date published: Tuesday 21st July 2020 9:44 Interim manager Hayden Mullins insists Watford must stay confident in their battle against relegation after losing to Manchester City. Mullins was in temporary charge for the first time after the sacking of Nigel Pearson, as he saw his side beaten 4-0. The result complicates their chances of survival, with just one game left. In reality, few would have expected Watford to get anything against City, and Mullins admitted he knew it would be a big challenge. However, he vowed to stay confident for their final game of the season against Arsenal, which they will likely need a result from to stay up. Mullins told BBC Radio 5 Live: “It was always going to be a tough ask, we knew that. They...

Troy Deeney reacts to talk of Watford ‘fight’ prior to Pearson exit

Date published: Tuesday 21st July 2020 7:16 Watford captain Troy Deeney and interim head coach Hayden Mullins are singing from the same hymn sheet ahead of Tuesday’s clash with Manchester City. The Hornets, who are 17th in the Premier League and three points above the relegation zone, sacked Nigel Pearson on Sunday after losing 3-1 at West Ham on Friday. Reports suggested a fight occurred during half-time at the London Stadium. But Deeney shot down those rumours and also insisted he would not be involved in team selection.“I just want to put it out there, there was no fight at half-time,” Deeney told beIN Sports. “It is 2020, you don’t do that any more and certainly with all the cameras you would see a lot more if that was ...

Pearson reveals what will give Watford best chance of survival

Date published: Saturday 4th July 2020 10:35 Nigel Pearson warned Watford that time is against them as a 3-0 loss to Chelsea sucked them into the relegation battle. Watford have failed to win any of their four games since the Premier League restarted. Their defeat at Stamford Bridge leaves them lingering one point above the drop zone. And manager Pearson believes they need to recognise they are in trouble – by replicating their work rate against Chelsea. “I thought we played with discipline,” he told Sky Sports. “I just said to the players, sometimes it’s hard when you have got players who would normally contribute in a different way, that are having to work hard for the team to make it difficult for opponents. “Of co...

Chelsea end week in top four as Willian scores third penalty in a row

Date published: Saturday 4th July 2020 9:54 Chelsea strengthened their top four hopes by beating Watford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night. Manchester United’s win over Bournemouth earlier in the day had seen the Blues slip to fifth place, but a 3-0 victory ensured they reclaimed fourth from the Red Devils. Both goals came in the first half. Olivier Giroud opened the scoring with a smart first-time finish on the turn, just before the half-hour mark. And as the break approached, Christian Pulisic was brought down in the box to win a penalty for the hosts. Willian stepped up to convert his third spot kick in three games. That made 2019-20 Willian’s most prolific Premier League season in a Chelsea shirt, while he also...
