“All The Teams Have Become Much Stronger”
Walter Mazzarri believes the quality of opposition across the board in the Premier League is stronger this season than it was in 2015/16.
Watford face a Hull City side on Saturday who haven’t tasted victory in seven league attempts, but the Hornets’ Head Coach insists every side coming to Vicarage Road this season possesses the quality to cause teams problems.
“In this new Premier League season, all the teams have become much stronger and got better compared to last year,” said Mazzarri, speaking this afternoon at his weekly press conference.
“We don’t tend to really look at the statistics because, for example, we managed to beat Middlesbrough at their ground but the next week they drew at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal.
“We need to be ready [against Hull] and we need to go to play in our best possible way, always respecting the opponent.”
