Gracia won't drawn into predictions
Watford boss Javi Gracia says his team's final league standing will not change how impressed he is with his current squad.
The Hornets travel to Liverpool on Wednesday evening looking to hopefully spring an upset on Jurgen Klopp’s men and consolidate their seventh place position in the Premier League, following Wolves’ surprise loss to Huddersfield on Tuesday.
Gracia’s side have been largely the most the consistent outside of the top six so far this season but have never finished in the top half of a Premier League table.
As it stands, seventh would be their best top-flight finish in any season since 1983 when Graham Taylor was in charge.
However Gracia is not focusing on potential finishes just yet and says he would be just as happy with the season even if they tailed off slightly.
“At the end we'll see what we are able to achieve, but I'm sure our supporters are enjoying this and that they are proud of these players,” he said.
“At the end we will see. One position doesn't change my feeling about this squad. We are a good squad and are competing well.
“We could finish sixth, seventh, eighth or 15th. I just want to be happy with ourselves, to enjoy every day.
“We'll look at the end of the season, but we are in the right way and feeling we are doing a good job.”
