Gerard Deulofeu believes Watford deserved at least a point from their game against Everton on Saturday.

After the match, the Hornets' forward claimed that a draw would have been a fairer result for both sides, after an improved performance from the visitors' opening day defeat to Brighton.

However, the former Everton player acknowledged that Watford were still not at their best. 

"We got some chances and they didn't deserve this win," said Deulofeu.

"Maybe a draw will be the best result.

"In some periods of the game, yes, we played well but also in some periods of the first half, we didn't play well.

"We have to go more strong to the challenges and if you didn't take the three points, the game is bad. If you lose, it's bad, so we have to go again.

"We will have to improve some things and start to take points because now other teams have started to take points and we have to also take them."

One opportunity for Watford to get something from the game came in the first half when Deulofeu was brought down in the area by a challenge from Everton's Yerry Mina.

However, no penalty was given after a VAR check, despite the forward insisting there was contact.

"I felt contact, but I can't say now nothing because I didn't see the video," he said.

"I'm not diving - I felt contact. After the decision of the ref, it's above him.

"When we see the video, we can speak."
