Okaka | “We Must Look Forward”

Defeat against Manchester United may have meant a return south with no points to show, but Stefano Okaka is determined not to dwell on the Hornets' first league defeat in five games.

A goal in each half deservedly earned all three points for Jose Mourinho's in-form Red Devils, but an improved second-half performance left Okaka with enough reason to feel positive ahead of a break in Premier League fixtures next weekend. 

"Everybody knows that in this stadium against this team it is difficult," he told watfordfc.com directly after the match. 

"We tried to do our best but it was not enough, Manchester also played really well. We had some chances but could not score the goal, so we keep looking forward to the next game.

"We created two or three chances in the second-half but it was 2-0. We didn’t play badly and we can do some things better, but against Arsenal and Burnley we took three points in each and that is football."
