Marco Silva: ‘Watford aim is to seal Premier League survival’

Watford head coach Marco Silva has played down his side’s impressive start to the season, claiming that their aim is to stay in the Premier League.

A home draw with Liverpool in the Hornets’ opening fixture followed up by wins at Bournemouth and Southampton have lifted the Hertfordshire club to fourth in the table.

Only Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are above them after four games, but Silva insists that he is not getting carried away despite their unbeaten start.

He told Sky Sports News: “It doesn’t change anything. Since the first time I have spoke with you [the media] it hasn’t changed. Because we have started well it doesn’t change our goal.

“It is clear we want to keep our club as a Premier League club and to do something better than the last two seasons.

 “I believe we can do it but we need to improve on the pitch, not here or because I speak. We need to improve every day in training and every match we need to fight to take points for us.”

Up next for Watford is a league encounter with Man City at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
