Christian Kabasele believes Watford are too potent a force to be dragged into a Premier League relegation battle.

The Hornets remain rooted to the foot of the table following their goalless draw against Sheffield United at Vicarage Road on Saturday, during which Andre Gray and Danny Welbeck were both guilty of wasting chances to end Watford's 12-match winless top-flight run.

Blades goalkeeper Dean Henderson also produced a fine save to stop Craig Dawson's injury-time header from finding the back of the net.

"With all the respect for the other teams, I think we have too much quality up front to be involved in a relegation battle," said defender Kabasele, who played his part in Watford's first clean sheet in the league since February.

"Obviously in our situation we cannot be 100 per cent satisfied. We were at home, we didn't take three points here, so it's a shame we didn't finish our chances.

"But this is the reality today, we are last in the league and we need to change the situation.

"I don't think a win is far away. We need to believe and start to win as soon as possible. As soon as we can we need a victory to try to leave this position."
