Hugo Lloris pinpoints team work as Watford’s big strength ahead of today’s (Monday, December 28) clash at Vicarage Road.


Watford have excelled back in the Premier League and go into the fixture sitting seventh after a 2-2 draw at Chelsea on Boxing Day stretched their current unbeaten run to five games.

“Watford are a really good team and they work as a team,” said Hugo, who helped us to back-to-back clean sheets with a -3-0 win over Norwich on Boxing Day.

“It will be a tough game and we have to be focused on our rest and recovery.

"If we keep the same mentality we’ll have another great performance but it’s a tough game and we’ll need everyone at 100 per cent.”

Watford are led by the dangerous strike pairing of Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo who have 19 Premier League goals between them - Ighalo is joint-second top goalscorer (13 goals) in the league at the moment behind Jamie Vardy (15). Deeney has weighed in with six.

“Once again, they work hard for the team and are good offensively and defensively,” added Hugo. “It will be 90 minutes of high intensity and a great test for us, but also a great opportunity.”
