Christian Kabasele has described Watford's draw with Arsenal as "like a win", after the Hornets came from two down to snatch an important point.

A brace from Pierre Emerick Aubameyang saw the Gunners take a commanding advantage in at the break, but a much-improvement second-half performance saw Watford restore parity.

The Belgian defender said new coach Quique Sanchez Flores' fiery approach had a lot to do with the way Watford conducted themselves on the pitch.

"It's like a win because we were 2-0 down and we came back against a good team," he said.

"It gives us confidence. The next game, it will be really really tough and we need to work with what we did today, especially in the second-half. We have a really good squad and it's up to us to try to not concede too easily.

"Quique is maybe more vocal than Javi. Javi was a more quiet person that explained things more with calmness and now the new manager is more like fire, I would say.

"It's good because maybe we needed this change of approach to try to wake up everybody."

Kabasele admits the side's confidence was suffering after a poor start to the season, but believes a result like this could give their campaign the kick-start it needs.

The 28-year-old believes there is more than enough quality within the Watford ranks to see them climb out of the relegation zone soon.

"When you don't win games, it's always like this," he said.

"We saw it last season, we were winning some games in a row and we had the feeling that we could beat everyone. This season, we have the feeling that we can lose against everyone.

"We took two points from two games. It's not enough, but it's a good start.

"When we see the players that we have in our squad, Gerard [Deulofeu], Maxi [Pereyra], Danny [Welbeck] wasn't in the squad, Isma [Sarr] did good when he came in.

"I think we have a lot of quality to not be involved in this relegation battle. For the moment we are there, we need to try to be out of this zone as soon as possible and after we'll see what we can do."
