Watford matched their goalscoring tally on the road from the whole of last season today - but Marco Silva was still left wanting more after their 3-0 win at Newcastle.

The Hornets could have had a hatful more against the mournful Magpies, but Andre Gray and Richarlison were both guilty of missing great chances after half-time.

Silva was pleased as punch with his side's performance, their second win in six days, but felt it could have been even more comfortable on Tyneside.

He said: "We had a lot of chances to score more goals, we could have scored more and we should have scored more during the game.

"But that’s football, sometimes you create chances and score, sometimes you don’t. It’s important to see it can be easy for us to create chances.

"Even when we had the defeats, those results didn’t reflect what we did on the pitch. Having two wins in a row is important, and it’s important that we have confidence. But it’s only three points."

With two tough games coming up against Manchester United and Tottenham over the next week, the Hornets started their busy 35-day period with some valuable credit in the North East.

Silva insists he's still only got today's game on his mind, though, and will turn his focus to United tomorrow.

"We’ll see what will happen," he said. "We don’t think about the next two or three games, the time to prepare isn’t too big, and we’ll start getting ready tomorrow.

"We don’t have a lot of time, like Manchester United, it’s the same for them. We’ll try our best to get a good result at home with our fans, it’ll be tough but we’re confident."
