Watford supporting players over racism, says manager Javi Gracia

Tom Cleverley Watford Premier League

The former Seville manager was also full of praise for Watford who worked tirelessly throughout the game despite being a man down He added: "I think they pushed a lot with one player less in their team".

"It's something all of us have to refuse to avoid", said Gracia.

"I also met with (Manchester City midfielder) David Silva in Valencia past year and he said to me, "Coach, if you can, come to England, it is the best football and the best atmosphere for you also". "We spoke with the players, they felt our support and it's all we can do in this moment, try to be together, to help them and nothing else".

"I respect the referee's decision".

The pressure is on the Gunners in the battle to finish in a top four place, meaning boss Unai Emery will want nothing less than three points at Watford.

One of the latest pieces of transfer gossip doing the rounds is the possibility that we may be signing Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld but while it is, of course, feasible it simply is not going to happen in my opinion.

"I am very proud of my players", he said. 'I continued speaking with him about doing something very important in the last matches here in two competitions that are very important for us.

Soon after, Watford skipper Troy Deeney was shown a straight red card, compounding their misery and giving them a mountain to climb all game.

Watford are now 10th, but with a game in hand over Everton and Leicester, Gracia knows the importance of making that count.

"Our final is to play against Arsenal, it's not in May, it's on Monday".
