Winnable games at start for Hornets

 Published on: 14th June 2017   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category: Watford FC

After the Premier League fixtures were announced on Wednesday, June 14, Watford FC will think it’s quite a favourable opening. Watford will host Liverpool on the opening day of the season, the weekend commencing the Saturday, August 12, before, what they will feel are winnable games against Bournemouth, newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion, and Southampton. And even with tough home games against Liverpool, and later Manchester City, the Hornets will feel quietly confident as new manager, Marco Silva, has a formidable home record. The Portuguese has only lost two home games in his past 43. Watford will want as many points on the board as soon as possible because come April, they will not want to be involved in the relegation battle. Their final few fixtures see them host Crystal Palace, an always fiery affair, before traveling to Spurs, hosting Newcastle and finally visiting Old Trafford. And if The Golden Boys end this season how they did the last, losing their last six games, then relegation could be a real possibility. Speaking to Watford FC’s website, new boss Marco Silva said: “We will work hard to start well in the Premier League. “Everybody knows it’s a hard competition but we come with confidence to improve every day and this is most important for me. This confidence I will pass to our players and to our fans as well. “It’s important to us that everybody knows what our goal is. The club is moving forward as a Premier League club but we always want to improve our position in the table and that’s important for next season. “We’ll work hard every day to prepare for the matches and to do our best in every game.” Picture courtesy of Watford FC
