Xisco Muñoz said he saw plenty of signs from tonight’s FA Cup tie at Old Trafford that the Hornets are moving firmly in the right direction.
Scott McTominay’s header settled the game as early as the fifth minute, but there were lots of positives for Watford, who went toe to toe with a Manchester United team sitting second in the Premier League on goal difference only.
“I’m proud of my players,” said Muñoz at full-time.
“Every day they are growing up, every day they are working very hard and we need to continue. I think we had a good performance and it’s important we believe in our team.
“We know we had a very good team against us but the guys gave us very good intensity. The team pushed up every time and we tried to recover the ball so much.”
