Bilic plays down the great start


bilicGrounded Slaven Bilic has told his  players not to get carried away by their strong start to the season.

He said in his pre-match press conference this morning:: “It’s only still the start but we are confident. There’s going to be ups and downs results wise but I don’t see why it should drop.

“Our goal is to try and win as many football games as we can and to play as attractive football as we can. It’s still early days.

“Our position in the table motivates the players by itself because they are enjoying it and they want to enjoy it longer.”

Thirteenth placed Watford have three wins from their opening ten games and Bilic has been impressed with their start to the campaign,

He said: “It will be a tough game on Saturday because they are a hard team to beat. They are also a new team who are improving week by week.

“They look a very organised team, and we have to be on top of our game if we want to continue our good run.”
