Watford star Jose Holebas says the time has come for the Hornets to kick on following their perfect start to the new season. Watford beat Tottenham 2-1 on Sunday to join Liverpool and Chelsea as the only sides to have won all four of their opening Premier League games this term.
It is also only the second time in their history that they have won four on the bounce from the start, the last being 30 years ago, and Holebas says they have to keep the run going.
After comfortably avoiding relegation in their first two seasons back in this division Holebas reckons now is the time for the Hornets to kick on.
“We’re happy we won and we kept the points in our stadium. It’s good – four in a row. I don’t know if it ever happened here,” he said.
“For me, I’m happy for the boys, for the team, for the whole club that we won again. For us, at 1-0 down against Tottenham – a big club with good players – to come back in the game is really good, I have to say.
“(This year is) totally different, I have to say. Totally different. When I see the boys on the pitch and in training now, it’s totally different. I think some of them understand now what it’s about to be in the Premier League.
“Obviously the first year was difficult as a promoted team, second year again. It’s a time now when it’s coming that we create a team and I think that’s what the club is doing here – trying to create a team – and, step by step, it’s coming.”
