Amrabat On Liverpool

Nordin Amrabat was in positive mood this week ahead of the trip to Liverpool, despite the test that awaits the Hornets at Anfield. 

The Reds are on a run of 11 games without defeat in all competitions, in which time they’ve netted 30 goals. 

However, the Moroccan was keen to impress the Golden Boys' own triumphs in recent weeks, as he spoke to watfordfc.com’s match preview.

“The last month we played four and we didn't lose any games,” he explained. 

“We won two and drew two so it's not bad at the moment. The coach is happy, we win games but sometimes we can play better, but we are improving slowly and I think everybody is content with the results"

“When the coach came he introduced a new system, we train a lot tactically and we listen a lot to him. He explained a lot to us and I think at the moment it works. 

“In the last three games we have three clean sheets, so defensively it was good and we score goals and win games”

Amrabat has experience of the famed atmosphere at Anfield, and hopes to change his fortune after two previous defeats in front of the Kop.

“Everybody knows Liverpool away is a difficult game.They have Jurgen Klopp, I think he has been working now one year, and he has introduced a new system. 

“They press a lot, they play good football so it will be a difficult game. But, football is football - you never know. 

“I have played at Anfield for PSV when we lost 3-1 and last season I came on for the last 20 minutes. So now I am ready to win! 

“They say always the third time is lucky, so hopefully the third time will be the best time.”


Mooney | “I Couldn't Miss From There!”

Tommy Mooney will openly admit that he couldn't contain his excitement on the evening prior to playing at Anfield for the first time.

After two opening Premier League defeats, the Hornets travelled to Merseyside looking to claim their first points of the season.  

What followed was a famous day for the Golden Boys, as Mooney struck the only goal of the game to earn a 1-0 win over the Reds. 

Reflecting on that day, Mooney said: "What I remember about the day the most was the ground at the end! 

"The Watford fans were delirious, but the Liverpool supporters were all on their feet clapping us, and the noise around the ground I remember more than the goal. 

"I don’t really remember much about it – the ball fell to me and I just side-footed it in and even I couldn’t miss from there!"
