The Hornets got a much needed Premier League win on Friday, but Hughes knows that it is not enough.

If they want to climb out of the relegation places, they must get results in coming games against Burnley and Southampton.

Hughes told reporters after the Norwich win: "We are still in such a difficult position. We're still adrift from safety, so this [win] means nothing if we don't replicate it against Burnley and Southampton.

"We've got to keep working hard and hopefully our luck will change and we can move up the table.

"We've been working hard all season but we've clearly not been good enough."

Gerard Deulofeu's goal after 76 seconds after some lax defending from Emiliano Buendia set Watford on their way and Andre Gray's close-range flick from a Deulofeu cross secured the points.

But they had to survive for 25 minutes with 10 men after Christian Kabasele was dismissed for his second yellow card.

Sanchez Flores said: "We need positive energy and scoring early is how you feed the energy of the players.

"To progress in the right reaction this is the only thing we can do. You can believe in what you are doing but you need results. The first goal of football is to win.

"The players were really strong. They kept their shape and everything was really good. The fans were for a long time waiting, waiting, waiting. This was for the fans, they deserve it.

"We want to play again quickly. Every single match is very tough. No relax, no thinking everything is done. We are there at the bottom and we need to fight."

He added: "It is very good not to concede goals. It is good for us to feel strong and solid. We need to fight and to believe. If we are able to do that we will be able to transmit good positive energies into results.

"I think for us the first feeling is that it is something special for the fans. We wanted to dedicate it to the fans because they have supported for a long time.

"We will work hard until the players are used to this level of performance."

<![CDATA[Norwich boss Daniel Farke: We made nursey mistakes]]> <p>Norwich City boss Daniel Farke was left angry with his players after their 2-0 home defeat to Watford.</p><p>Gerard Deulofeu's goal after 76 seconds after some lax defending from Emiliano Buendia set Watford on their way and Andre Gray's close-range flick from a Deulofeu cross secured the points.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/norwich-boss-daniel-farke-we-made-nursey-mistakes-4303620?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BWatford'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Norwich City boss Daniel Farke was left angry with his players after their 2-0 home defeat to Watford.

Gerard Deulofeu's goal after 76 seconds after some lax defending from Emiliano Buendia set Watford on their way and Andre Gray's close-range flick from a Deulofeu cross secured the points.

But they had to survive for 25 minutes with 10 men after Christian Kabasele was dismissed for his second yellow card.

Farke said, We did not have the cutting edge today. We created so many situations, we had something like 20 shots. The cutting edge and also the right decision to play the final pass. These things you can accept but mistakes before the goals you cannot accept. We are playing in the best league in the world and you can't make these mistakes.

"We were pretty realistic before the season started and we were aware that we were favourite for position 20.

"We show more or less in every game we are competitive in this league, including in this game, but you have to play without easy mistakes, nursery mistakes. If we can play without these we definitely have chance to get points. Otherwise, we are struggling.

"It is of course not easy for the confidence level with seven games without a win. We had the chance today to get the result if we played a bit more solid."

He also stated: My winger cut inside pretty close to our own goal and lost the ball. To concede a goal from this cheers the other guys up. If you start such an important game with such a nursery mistake it doesn't help the confidence or the mood.

"In football small details make the difference and this was a game defining moment."

Gerard Deulofeu's goal after 76 seconds after some lax defending from Emiliano Buendia set Watford on their way and Andre Gray's close-range flick from a Deulofeu cross secured the points.

But they had to survive for 25 minutes with 10 men after Christian Kabasele was dismissed for his second yellow card.

Foster said afterwards, "It's been a while, near six months, it's ridiculous. There's only so long you can say its going to come and we're so glad it has tonight."

On manager Quique Sanchez Flores, he added: "He is a great guy, he's full of energy and it's a massive win for him and for the fans - but I'm really happy for him.

"He's exactly what we need at this time, he's full of confidence and he understands we're all human.

"We've got the talent and the ability. The confidence has taken a massive hit and this is going to do wonders for it."

Dawson hopes they can find a first win for the season against Norwich City.

Everyone's working really hard and we're not far away from that win, so we need to keep on working hard," he said.

The win will come and that will build confidence, and hopefully we can do that this weekend.

We've had a few games where certain decisions have not quite gone for us. That's football. It's important we stay focused and working hard and those decisions will turn for us and the win will come as well.

It's been difficult, but we've got some pretty big characters in the squad trying to keep us all together and everyone's working hard as a team. I think everyone's working well, we just haven't had that win. It has not happened yet, but it will do soon."

The French midfielder admitted the players were still suffering with low confidence ahead of a hugely important run of fixtures.

The confidence is not the best at the moment, it's a little bit low," said Doucoure.

But we know we need to be confident and ourself on the pitch to forget a little bit about the table and to play as much as we can.

We know the importance of the game tomorrow, we know we need a result, we know we need a win. It's a massive, massive game, it will be very tough there, but we need to be ready and to take the result there.

We have three or four games coming that are very important for the season, I think it will decide for the rest of the season so we know they're very tough games. The first one is on Friday and we need to be ready and to fight."

The bottom side in the Premier League are playing the team that is two points and one place above them in the table.

With goalscoring a particular issue for the Hornets this season, Flores is delighted that Deeney is fit again.

The captain returned to first team training this week.

Deeney should have a place on the bench for Watford against Norwich.

"He is ready to come with the group, to go to the list," Flores said of Deeney to reporters.

"He is ready and we will decide the final decision.

"If I say we missed him a lot it sounds like an excuse and we don't want excuses right now, but everyone knows what Deeney means to this team and club."

The Hornets are facing off against the newly promoted side in a game that will have significant implications on the relegation battle.

Watford have not won a game this season, while they have fewer goals scored than any team in the top four English divisions this term.

Norwich currently lie two points and one place ahead of rock bottom Watford.

"This will be like a big, big final for both teams," said Flores to reporters about the Norwich game.

"It is not the end of the season but it is a big final for both of us and the way the game and result can change the future for both teams will be massive."

<![CDATA[Team of the Week: Mane saves Liverpool; Newcastle delight; Maguire who?]]> <p>As we have come to expect in the English Premier League, it was a dramatic weekend, filled with late goals with major ramifications.</p><p>Both frontrunners Liverpool and Man City fell behind but managed to claw their way back to somehow claim 3 points.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/team-of-the-week-mane-saves-liverpool-newcastle-delight-maguire-who-4303221?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BWatford'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> As we have come to expect in the English Premier League, it was a dramatic weekend, filled with late goals with major ramifications.

Both frontrunners Liverpool and Man City fell behind but managed to claw their way back to somehow claim 3 points.

Leicester produced another top performance to cement themselves in 3rd spot and Sheffield United blazed through Burnley to move into the top 6.

We here at tribalfootball look at the top performers from Matchday 11 in the Tribal Football Team Of The Week.



GOALKEEPER - BEN FOSTER (Watford)

Despite a disappointing narrow loss to Chelsea, keeper Ben Foster was crucial between the sticks for the hornets, keeping his side in the match for the entirety of the 90 minutes.

Foster made a huge 8 saves, continually keeping the blues at bay, both from close and long range.

He even nearly snatched a point for his side when he went forward deep into stoppage time and fired a bullet head at goal, only to be denied by his opposite number.



LEFT-BACK - ANDY ROBERTSON (Liverpool)

A lot of the focus of this segment, as well as world football, falls upon the skill of individual players. However, what often goes under the radar is appreciating top footballing mentality.

Andy Robertson clearly has bucket loads of ability, with the Champions league winning left-back well and truly in the discussion for being the best in the world at his craft. However when the game looked lost for Liverpool, it was his desire that once again put him in the spotlight.

In the 87th minute Robertson flew past his marker El-Ghazi and busting his gut made a run to the far post, rewarded by Mane who set up the Scotsman to head home. It was an inspired goal worthy of a title-contender.



CENTRE-BACK - STEVE COOK (AFC Bournemouth)

Steve Cook was at the centre of a rigid Bournemouth defence that gave very little away to a visiting Manchester United side.

Winning 5 aerial duels, making 3 interceptions and 9 clearances, the Cherries' skipper was largely responsible for his sides impressive clean sheet.



CENTRE-BACK - CAGLAR SOYUNCU (Leicester City)

The Leicester cult-hero is ever ingraining his name deeper into the hearts of foxes' fans after another commanding performance in their 0-2 win at Selhurst Park.

As always the Turkish defender was robust at the back, preventing the dangerous duo of Zaha and Ayew from registering a shot on target. Soyuncu also won 7 aerial duels and made 8 clearances in his sides impressive clean sheet.

However his headline moment came in the 57th minute when he willed himself at the ball from a corner, stooping to steer his header into the back of the net, giving the foxes a precious 0-1 lead.



RIGHT-BACK - KYLE WALKER (Manchester City)

With another Man City upset on the cards, the pacy full-back almost single handedly pulled his side across the line in City's 2-1 comeback win.

In the 70th minute, the England International drilled in a ball along the ground, expertly picking out Aguero in the box who had the simple task of turning it goalwards to equalise for City.

Again in the 86th minute, Walker arriving late in the box found himself on the end of Angelino's deep cross and managed to score on the half-volley, seizing all 3 points and capping off a terrific performance.



CENTRE-MIDFIELD - JONJO SHELVEY (Newcastle United)

Recalled to the starting line up for the first time in 6 games, the mercurial midfielder was at his creative best on return.

Controlling the Newcastle midfield, Shelvey showed-off his set piece prowess, putting in a beautiful cross for Joelinton to set up the first goal and then scoring a world class goal from a 35 yard free-kick.

Shelvey could've scored one before as well when he hit one first time with the outside of his boot, which smashed against the frame of the goal.



CENTRE-MIDFIELD - JOHN LUNDSTRAM (Sheffield United)

The Englishmen is certainly developing an eye for goal, scoring the opening brace in his sides 3-0 win over Burnley. It was a case of 'right-place right-time' on both occasions for Lundstram, who got on the end of attacking moves after intelligent runs, showing composure and skill to cooly put away both chances.

With 5 shots on goal and 3 tackles, it was a strong performance from the midfielder who sees his side move into the top 6.



LEFT- FORWARD - SADIO MANE (Liverpool)

You'll hear it right across the footballing world, but Liverpool's late comeback was the sign of a side ravenous for a Premier League trophy.

The architect of this superb win was the ever dangerous Sadio Mane.

With the game looking all-but lost at Villa Park, the Senegalese winger floated in a perfect cross for Andy Roberston to head home.

With the away support still celebrating a salvaged point, Mane in the 94th minute attacked the Liverpool corner and headed home into the far post, snatching a historic 3 points from no-where.

In total Mane had 6 shots on goal and 3 key passes.



RIGHT-FORWARD - ALLAN SAINT-MAXIMIN (Newcastle United)

Newcastle's explosive French winger was an absolute dynamite in Newcastle's dominant win at the London Stadium, continually lacerating the shaky West Ham defence.

Every time Saint-Maximin touched the ball, something exciting happened, either blistering past defenders or bamboozling them with his immaculate skill on the ball.

With 5 successful dribbles and 3/3 shots on target, despite not being able to find the back of the net, it was certainly a stand out performance.



CENTRE-FORWARD - LYS MOUSSET (Sheffield United)

With only 3 Premier League goals in 58 appearances coming into the 19/20 season, eyebrows were raised when he was signed by Sheffield in the summer, with not many expecting Lys Mousset to be a strong attacking threat.

However the Frenchman has hit a purple patch of form under Chris Wilder and with 3 goals from his past 5 games, managed a hat-trick of assists against Burnley in the blades 3-0 win.

Mousset showed his more creative side with his 3 assists (4 key passes), providing a sagacious touch to set up the first goal and a cutting through ball for the third.



CENTRE-FORWARD - TAMMY ABRAHAM (Chelsea)

The youngster was at his clinical best leaving his mark on both Chelsea goals in their 1-2 win at Vicarage Road.

After being played through by a simply mouth-watering Jorginho through ball, Abraham was alert to get to the ball before the keeper and cooly dink it past him with a single touch.

Again in the 55th minute Abraham was played through on goal and again with a one-touch pass rifled it into the path of Pulisic who hardly had to move his feet to double Chelsea's lead.



MANAGER OF THE WEEK - STEVE BRUCE (Newcastle United)

Following the mounting pressure from England's North East, the Veteran manager needed a big performance to lift his side, who hadn't managed to score more than a single goal per game all season.

And a big performance the Toon supporters received, providing a superb outing, with Steve Bruce's men showing a new found potent edge in attack.

Recalling the more attacking Jonjo Shelvey alongside Isaac Hayden from suspension, the Longstaff-less midfield dominated proceedings at the London Stadium.

Furthermore, sticking with the much criticised Joelinton and Almiron paid off, as them alongside Saint-Maximin produced a devastating performance.

Although the scoreline may have read a tight 2-3, the Magpies where miles ahead of their opponents, with the Hammers lucky not to find themselves 5 or 6 goals down.



GOAL OF THE WEEK - JONJO SHELVEY (Newcastle United)



SUBSTITUTE OF THE WEEK - LEANDRO TROSSARD (Brighton)

Coming on in the 58th minute, the young Belgian once again provided a much needed attacking spark, turning the match in favour of the Seagulls.

10 minutes after coming on Trossard got onto the end of a Montoya cross and flicked it past the goalkeeper at the front post to break the deadlock.

Then in the 84th minute he flighted in a terrific set piece for Shane Duffy to ice the game.

A goal and an assist along with 4 key passes is certainly the impact Graham Potter would have dreamed of.

The Sun says the 26-year-old last found the back of the net against Arsenal in an FA Cup tie in January.

Lingard also hasn't provided an assist in the top-flight since December.

Instead, Bournemouth shot-stopper Aaron Ramsdale has provided more assists than the United attacking midfielder this term, while Ben Foster has incredibly had more shots on target than the ex-Derby loanee.

The Watford ace almost equalised for the Hornets with the last touch of the ball during his side's 2-1 defeat against Chelsea on Saturday, only for Kepa Arrizabalaga to deny him with a wonder save.

Lingard has had four shots this season, but none of them have forced a save out of the goalkeeper.
