Watford had very successful last season with the top half finish in the league accompanied by a memorable FA Cup campaign that saw the Hornets reaching the final for the first time in nearly 30 years. In the end no silverware was won, but nonetheless the results and displays were impressive. Coach Gracia hasn’t lost anyone important so far in the transfer window, and the interesting partnership Deeney-Deulofeu in attack is promising to be causing all sorts of problems to defences again. Defender Dawson is the only notable new arrival, with his signing suggesting that in some matches Watford might be tempted to go for 5 at the back. Especially against the Big 6, the Hornets were way too exposed last term, and a more defensive approach could only improve their results in such fixtures. Watford played some modern football last season and this should continue with the abundance of talent in midfield all gifted passers, plus the full-backs are all aggressive attack-minded players. The Hornets have a big squad and targeting another long run in the 2 cup competitions is likely, with Watford also looking well covered for pretty much every position on the pitch if injuries occur. Gracia is also known for his extra work on set pieces, with most of the defenders proven goalscorers from dead-ball deliveries, and Holebas one of the most accurate crossers from such situations. Last season only Liverpool, Chelsea and Crystal Palace registered more shots on goal from set pieces.

Target


To seek another top 10 finish, but in order to achieve it they will have to maintain the levels of performance from last season. Targeting long runs in the cup competitions also expected.

Season Review
2018/2019

№11: Watford

Watford had their best ever Premier League season under the expert guidance of coach Gracia, with the Hornets also contesting their first FA Cup final in 35 years at the end of the campaign. From the off the signs were good with Watford starting the campaign with 4 consecutive wins, including victory over Tottenham. This was enough not just to keep Watford out of trouble for the rest of the season, but only in the final round did they drop out of the top 10 after spending 32 of the 38 weeks in the top half of the table. Still the points tally that was accumulated was by far the highest Watford have ever achieved in the Premier League. On top of all that some heroic comebacks in the FA Cup saw Watford reaching the final for only the second time in their history. Unfortunately the match for the trophy vs. City was badly lost 0:6. Many players had good campaigns and deserve mentioning, but the one that had almost always a positive impact when on the pitch was crafty forward Deulofeu. The little Spaniard definitely looked like someone around whom the team for next season could be built. Watford are expected to lose in the summer at least 2-3 of the players that impressed, but Deulofeu should stay. Also Gracia and many others confirmed their commitment to the club, which suggests that another solid campaign in and around the top half of the table can be expected.
