Watford beat Sunderland 1-0 to ease EPL relegation concerns

02 April 2017

Watford manager Walter Mazzarri has warned his side can not afford to underestimate bottom club Sunderland when they come to Vicarage Road.

"We need to keep going and keep trying to pick up the points".

He said: "The only thing I can clear up is we are not down and we are not planning to go down, we are planning to stay up". "The result can depend on some episodes, but we will give everything".

Sunderland continued to push and Wahbi Khazri's presence - on after 70 minutes - saw Watford put under more pressure, with the Tunisian's delivery adding a new route to goal. "This is a team we can't underestimate".

Watford beat last-placed Sunderland 1-0 to ease its relegation fears in the English Premier League on Saturday.

"It is hard to say [how many suitors Defoe will have if he becomes available] because it is all hypothetical, but I imagine there will be a lot of people interested in him".

"I've been told we were seven points behind with six games left before, and if you can do it from that position you can do it from any. We need to play better".

"We will evaluate Deeney. If he doesn't start tomorrow, he will be ready to come from the bench".

Former Aston Villa and Celtic striker Tony Cascarino has suggested in The Times that Sunderland manager David Moyes has shown too much respect to opponents this season.

Key findings from the AP-NORC poll on President Donald Trump
At the end of the day, however, the findings probably won't mean much to a president who tends to call negative polls "fake news". But with Trump in the White House, Milton is so disappointed that she said she would take former President George W.

The 34-year-old was finally handed the chance to resurrect his global career last Sunday and scored the opener in a man-of-the-match display as England saw off Lithuania 2-0 at Wembley.

M'baye Niang turned Billy Jones inside the area and fired low towards goal only for Jordan Pickford to parry the ball out to Doucoure, but his shot towards the opposite corner was also saved well by the Black Cats' goalkeeper. We had a few to defend and we just don't see the job through. They have got to produce and they have got to perform as well.

"I have said many times before how good I think he is and it is great to see him back in an England shirt and scoring goals".

Sunderland are in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

Defoe revealed - after his heroics for his country - that the regime which has seen him maintain his form well into his 30s has even included a vegan diet. "I understand why someone outside football might have thought we were in trouble, but I never thought so". If you say that then you want to stay with it.

The Scot, however, was less than forthcoming when asked about a clause in Defoe's contract which will allow him to leave Sunderland for nothing in the event of relegation.

He said: "I always felt I had that [security] from the day I came in".

Moyes hopes to have defenders John O'Shea and Lamine Kone fit for the trip to Vicarage Road.
