Watford have looked good this season and this will be a tough game

One to look out for is Richarlison, dangerous attacking talent who has settled really well in the Premier League

Massive game for us and we need the win

                Pickford

Holgate Jagielka Keane Baines

     Baningime Gana Davies

Lookman                      Vlasic
                Rooney
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Beni is the only one of that midfield at the moment who actually deserves a starting place

Was eventually an enjoyable game yesterday, once it had finished, and though it may not be the turning point where everything suddenly comes good, it is a massive 3 points and symbolic that it gets us out of the relegation zone during this international break

Big questions still remain all over the pitch, but we did get some answers on certain things, and hopefully some lessons learned going forward.

First of all, Unsworth clearly got a hell of a lot of fight out of that team today. When you've got to scrap for your life, you need people who are willing to put a shift in. Not everyone who played gave a great performance, but all the starters and all the subs came on gave it their all

Pace was key. Niasse' chasing down and threat in behind really worried Watford and stopped it being a comfortable afternoon for them. Also Lennons pace led to us winning the pen, Calvert-Lewin fresh of the bench was hard to deal with for them and also Lookman I thought was fantastic too. As teams tire they hate playing against pace

Niasse is the right striker to start at the moment. His pace, work rate and unpredictability are huge assets for us and he just makes stuff happen. Was making intelligent runs and really helps the fluidity of our attack

Calvert-Lewin is a great impact sub. He really made a great Cameo appearance today, he competes for everything in the air and worked well alongside Niasse. Helped the ball stick for us more up top

We need to use Rooney more sparingly. Also he needs to stay further forward. Was a really frustrating performance from Wayne. He seemed to drop deep, play inaccurate passes and lose the ball, hear the groans from the crowd and dive in recklessly. His legs have gone and we can't start him every single game

Pickford needs to choose the right moments for the quick distribution. While this is a great asset of his, at times today the quick distribution was the wrong option. Without Calvert-Lewin on the pitch, and with our general lack of height it was wasted today when he released the ball quickly out wide. Most of the time it resulted in us giving the ball away, and a lot of the time he attempted it we were off the back of a spell of pressure and periods of not having the ball. Also in pickfords defence he could do with some better movement from the outfield players when he does this. Should be players on each flank darting out wide and looking to get in behind

Jonjoe Kenny is starting to settle at right back. I thought he had an excellent game today. Put a real shift in, defended well and got forward to good effect too. Showed big character after a tough game at Leicester last week

Central midfield are having very little control on games. Again they offered very little protection to the defence and we pretty much had to just bypass the middle of the Park as often as possible. Davies and Beni were anonymous for a lot of the game, they are young and they do need protecting a bit. Was the right sub to bring Beni off and Davies struggled for most of the game though he did improve later on. Gana put himself about well as he always does and his sheer energy and persistence paid off, but it was far from a tidy performance. I think it is key that we start getting more control in the midfield area

Was a proper day of theatrics

The atmosphere was great in the ground once the comeback was underway. The classic bearpit atmosphere definitely rattled them a bit

Their fans were totally silenced and that Holebas just totally lost his head, which was great to watch as he is a total snide. Taking ages to get out the way to try and Fuck up Baines concentration for the pen

And losing his rag with their keeper

Thank fuck for their sub keeper by the way. Absoloute horror show

Great touch as well from Oumar as well after putting the cat amongst the pigeons with that collision making sure that Gomez and Kabasele were both ok, despite the latter being a total shit to him all game

After the match I got a bus into town to go the cinema. 2 drunk Manc lads got on, cans of Stella in hand and one of them puked up all over the show, totally filled the floor of the bus and everyone was laughing their heads off except the driver

Some bevvied old fella pipes up with a chant of Here we go and a bus full of blues all joined in

Up the fucking toffees
