Javia Gracia has said that Watford need to accept responsibility for the defeat against Liverpool, but thinks they are learning from their mistakes in the best way possible.

After the 5-0 defeat away at Anfield, the Hornets' head coach came out in support of his players and says their positive attitude has not been affected by the result.

He said: "I say what I think in that moment, it’s the way I try to be.

"I try to be demanding with my players, but after the game we’ve done our best. It was a bad game, a bad result. I know it, but we try to look for the solution for the future and to speak about what we have to improve and what we have to do better.

"I think it’s the best way to grow up because in that moment I am sure it’s easier to speak a lot about certain players or the referee or whatever, but we have to accept our responsibility.

"Maybe we didn’t do the best decisions or we didn’t have the best performance but we have to accept during the season there are a lot of different moments and we have to deal with these moments.

"I always see my players with a very good attitude here in the training sessions. It doesn’t change after a good result or a bad result.

"Sometimes when you lose you don’t feel the same way. After these days you’re ready to prepare for the next games. Now, when there are ten games left and there are only three or four days in between the games, you have to prepare the next game and believe you can do your best."

One big positive Javi Gracia faces is a selection problem in attack with Andre Gray pushing for a place, while Troy Deeney and Gerard Deulofeu will still feel confident following their five goal feast against Cardiff City last week.

Gray scored the winner against Everton, while also impressing from the subs' bench against Cardiff and Liverpool and the head coach believes he is fortunate to have so many options.

He said: "Andre always is a good option for us. He showed against Everton when he played at the end of the game and scored an important goal for the team and it’s true in the last games he created and had some chances to score.

"He’s playing well, the time he’s playing, he’s playing well. But he’s competing against Troy, who in Cardiff scored two goals and Gerard scored three goals.

"In this moment it’s not easy. It’s good for the team. I know in the moment the team needs one of them, they are ready to play and the most important is the time they play, they play the best they can."
