Gracia admits selection dilemma
Watford boss Javi Gracia believes the 4-1 win over Fulham last night was the best way to prepare for the FA Cup semi-final.
Abdoulaye Doucoure gave Watford the lead and, while Ryan Babel temporarily brought the visitors level, Will Hughes' fine volley and then further finishes from Troy Deeney and Kiko Femenia secured a convincing victory.
Watford's win gave them further cause for encouragement ahead of Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Wolves at Wembley, as well as a club record Premier League points tally of 46.
"To win was the best way to prepare for the next game," Gracia said. "Amazing. To get 46 points, the best amount of points ever in the Premier League, is very good.
"For the next game, we will see what happens. I have to take difficult decisions. After (substitute Andre Gray's) performance, I have to think about that.
"In the first half? Yes (I was angry). I did not like what I saw. We needed to change something.
"We did not keep the shape in the first half, we lost challenges. We had to adjust positions, movements, and two substitutions.
"In the second half, we felt better. More possession, more chances, scoring more goals. It was the key to winning the game."
