Watford boss Walter Mazzarri: We are not safe yet

Sir Alex Ferguson sat through Manchester United’s goalless draw with West Brom

Watford have scored a higher share of their Premier League goals in the opening 15 minutes of games than any other side (24%, eight of 34 goals); the second highest share is West Brom on 21% (8 of 39 goals).

Reports linking West Brom with a move for Watford captain Troy Deeney are unlikely to die down after some choice words from Baggies boss Tony Pulis this afternoon.

Troy Deeney has found the net in each of his last three Premier League games at Vicarage Road, equalling the record jointly held by Michael Ngonge in 1999, Heidar Helguson in 2000 and Odion Ighalo in 2015.

A return of one point from four Premier League games had seen the Hornets drop into the bottom half but any fears they would be dragged into trouble were eased by Miguel Britos' victor.

Pulis said: "It will be a different game than the last two we've played but that's what the Premier League is about, coming up against different systems and different strengths".

Walter Mazzarri expects his Watford players to show a greater ruthlessness in front of goal against West Brom on Tuesday night.

"Darren seems happy enough and we certainly want to try and get it done if we can.”". All the same, Pulis is expecting a hard contest as West Brom try to complete the league double this season after a 3-1 victory at The Hawthorns in December.

"I don't think they'd want to sell him anyway", he said. Maybe out for the season, we do not know yet.

The Italian will make a final call on a number of fitness concerns on Tuesday and fixture congestion, which sees Watford complete three games in a week against Tottenham on Saturday, will also play a role in selection.

"He didn't play on Saturday (a 1-0 win over Sunderland) and they won and played very well". "He has been a big influence at that football club and he has been a talisman over the last few years". "A point at Old Trafford is a positive for them".

Tony Pulis almost has a full strength team to pick from except the absence of Matt Phillips who is still recovering from a hamstring injury. "We wanted a good performance and we got it".
