Foster admits Watford’s confidence is down after Manchester City hammering

Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster has said that the team’s confidence is so low after the 5-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on the road. The Hornets went into the game with a three-point advantage over 18th-placed Aston Villa, but they were unable to withstand the challenge from the Cityzens.
Speaking after the game, Foster told Sky Sports: “I don’t think we helped ourselves. I don’t think we did enough to do anything but what the result suggested. The confidence is so crazy – crazy low. I don’t know why it should be but you get into a state of trying to minimise as much damage as you can and it’s a dangerous way to do things. They’re Man City. They’re very, very good.”
The Hornets have since dropped into the drop zone after the Villains registered a surprise 1-0 win over Arsenal at home. The west Midlands outfit are now equal on points with the Hornets but have a two goal advantage in the goal difference. Hence the relegation battle could go down to the final game of the season.
Meanwhile, Bournemouth are currently three points behind the duo and they still have a realistic chance of survival. The South Coast outfit need to win their final game of the season at Everton and hope that both Villa and Watford succumb to defeats. Villa are scheduled to face West Ham United on the road on Sunday. Watford, on the other hand, will make the trip to Arsenal.
Judging by the schedule, the Hornets definitely have the toughest opposition away from home and it remains to be seen whether they can beat the drop. Otherwise, they will head for the Championship after five seasons and there are no assurances of an instant return, given the solid competition between the promotion-chasing teams.
