Watford boss Javi Gracia has played down suggestions Saturday’s opponents Manchester United are in crisis. With four wins from four games, the Hornets are buzzing in third place behind Liverpool and Chelsea and their great start is in contrast to that of their weekend opponents.
United, meanwhile, have lost two of their games and manager Jose Mourinho is under pressure ahead of the Premier League clash at Vicarage Road.
Gracia told reporters: “I don’t understand that word ‘crisis’. I don’t know if they are in crisis.
“I only know they have a very good squad and they can choose different players, most of them internationals.
“I’m sure they play with 11 very good players and it will be very hard for us.
“But at this moment, playing at home, we feel we have the confidence to compete and to try to get points.
“The results help us to feel we can do it, but I know it’s only the feeling, because you have to do many things to win.”
