Watford boss Brendan Rodgers was delighted with his side’s performance in their 2-0 win against Swansea City this evening.
2 first half goals within 9 minutes sealed the win which sees the Hornets rise out of the relegation zone.
Rodgers told BBC Sport:
|‘It’s in our hands now and we play a lot of the teams around us.|
‘We are better than our position suggests and we are still improving game by game. Hopefully we will stay out of there now.
‘That was terrific. It was a very good performance in the first half and tactically we were outstanding.
‘They play 4-3-3 and that is a system I know well from my time at Chelsea. We matched them up and we used it well defensively and offensively.’
It was a rare occurance that Swansea City simply failed to get going, and struggled throughout to create clear cut chances on goal.
Whether it was a hangover from the FA Cup or not, hopefully it’ll end and we’ll put things right again when Doncaster visit the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
