Foster: “There's No Point In Dwelling”

Ben Foster was devastated to let down Hornets supporters at the Etihad but said the team would not let the result affect their confidence as two more fixtures lie ahead this week.

“We let ourselves down today and let the fans down as well,” he said. “The fans were brilliant, singing and chanting, giving it all they’ve got.

“As a goalie, coming to teams like Man City and Liverpool, if you let five goals in within 20 minutes, you’re fearing the worst.”

The reigning champions were on it from the first minute and put the match beyond reach before the Hornets had a chance to settle into the game, and Foster said he has never played against such a talented team.

“They are without doubt the best team I’ve ever played against,” he said. “They were incredible today. We were poor, incredibly poor, but they were absolutely top class. At times it was breath-taking watching them.

“It’s not the first time they have done this to a team, and it won’t be the last either. To come away to Man City, as a goalkeeper sometimes you come to these places and if you can keep it to two or three. Them and Liverpool are a different level. We didn’t do our job today of keeping the score down.”

Foster is an experienced professional and has been on the receiving end of heavy defeats before, and knows it is important to look forward rather than dwelling on the loss.

“We’ve got a League Cup match on Tuesday and a big game against Wolves next week as well,” he said. “That’s it, you’ve got to let it go and move onto the next one, it’s the only way, there’s no point in dwelling.

“We have to take little positives, at times we had little spells of play and at 1-0 we had a chance with Gerard Deulofeu. Unfortunately, we couldn’t put it away. But that’s football, that’s the way it is, you’ve just got to clean yourselves up.

“You’ve got to keep smiling, I’ve just let eight goals in and I’m not happy but you’ve got to put a brave face on. It is what it is, there’s no point dwelling and you’ve just got to look towards the next game.”
