Watford boss,Javi Gracia has expressed sadness over his side’s 3-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday.
Chelsea’s Eden Hazard set up goals for Loftus-Cheek who came in to replace injured N’Golo Kante and David Luiz before Gonzalo Higuain rounded off the scoring as Chelsea edged closer to a top-four finish.
And Javi Gracia told after match press it was difficult to accept the out-come following their impressive performance at the half-time.
“It’s difficult to accept this result because we had a good performance in the first half and had very clear chances to score but didn’t take them.
“Then in the second half, they scored from a corner kick, the second from another corner. It was difficult for us but if you analyse the play of the team we did many things well. We didn’t confirm in the first half when we played better and after that we didn’t deserve this result.
“I’m sad because we knew at the first corner they will do this and they did it and they scored. We need to be more aggressive to defend, more aggressive to finish and more clinical. Only playing well is not enough to win in these stadiums.
“We need to improve, it’s not just bad luck, we need to be more aggressive to finish the chances we are creating. We dominated possession, we played more in the opposition half. I like how we played but we need to be more aggressive in both boxes.
“Etienne Capoue will be ready for the next game. I’m happy with my midfielders today. We didn’t lose today because Capoue didn’t play,Javi Gracia has said.
