Quique Sanchez Flores is not interested in dwelling on Watford's performance against Arsenal, despite the Hornets getting a positive result from the game.

The Hornets came from two goals behind to draw with the Gunners, but the head coach thinks his side now needs to change their dynamic again and focus on a way to get a better result against this weekend's opponents Manchester City.

Speaking ahead of the trip to the Etihad, the Spaniard said it was important for his side to remain positive in order to change results in their favour, after taking just two points from their opening five matches.

"All of us have good feelings, but we don't need to go too much around this match because the next one should be completely different," said Sanchez Flores.

"We don't need to pass full days saying how many shots, how many attempts, or that we played really well, it's not time for that, it's time to be realistic to know we have to change the dynamic and that this was just the first step.

"We need to try and keep strong and try to change for the next step, even knowing that the opponent, they are really tough and it's difficult."

The head coach called for togetherness between players and supporters to help drive his side back up the Premier League and said he was searching for some consistency to the Hornets' performances.

The 54-year-old admitted that his side are still suffering mentally from the tough start to the league, but believes time will help them become stronger and more positive.

"When the team is taking different steps, it's not just about the players, about the coach, it's about the fans," he said.

"It's about this kind of environment when everyone thinks about the same thing. It's very necessary and what I felt in the last match is all of us are one and it's really important.

"My priority basically is to try to find some style for us. We want to try and establish some order, some organisation and this is what I want.

"When you are in the bottom of the table, of course mentality is a struggle. We need time, I think the behaviour and the performance of the players in the training ground is amazing, they look really positive."

Sanchez Flores will be without Craig Cathcart and Isaac Success, as well as Troy Deeney for the trip to Manchester, but says he is remaining focused on what he can achieve with the players at his disposal.

"Success (groin) has an injury and Cathcart (thigh) is out too. It's okay, it's fine, these are the only two players we have out," he said.

"Cathcart will come back maybe next week, Success might be one month, or maybe more.

"For us when we are preparing a match in the week, we are not thinking about how tough it is or not.

"We are preparing the match thinking about our possibilities and how we can do things and how we can try to manage."
