While the Hornets are doing great, Coach Marco Silva wants his team to keep their feet on the ground so as not to get carried away.
Tom Cleverley, Younes Kaboul and Heurelho Gomes are all used to Champions League places but for others, Silva revealed that he has to keep a closer look on them.
“I want everyone calm when we talk about it,” he said. “It’s fair to analyse what we’re doing now because in the first eight games we’ve done really well but it’s far too early.
“I want everyone to have their feet on the floor and everything changes too fast, so you need to keep going and work hard in each game. That’s the most important thing to us.
“Of course, it’s really good when we see the table and the position we are in at the moment, but it’s far too early so it’s not important. For now, everyone in the club and the fans know what our goal is.
“I don’t change one word I’ve spoken since the first day, and game-by-game we work to prepare for the next game in the best way.
“Our ambition as a team is for each match, and everyone knows it’s not important what position we are now – but of course, at the end of the season it would be fantastic.”
Watford FC will play Chelsea next and with the current situation of Antonio Conte which may leave them without four central midfielders, this may definitely help the Hornets of another upset.
Whatever happens, Watford would be going to Stamford Bridge aiming to win.
“I don’t talk about ambition because we go to compete at Stamford Bridge,” he said.
“They’re the favourites, but in football, the last result is really important for one team, but for Chelsea, the players they have can decide a match in one minute.
“They are the champions, but it’s one more game and we will prepare in the same way like we did against Arsenal and West Brom.”
