Christian Kabasele claims Watford should not be so reliant on Ben Foster, after the goalkeeper made several important stops and almost scored in defeat against Chelsea.

The Blues peppered the Hornets' net and had ten shots on target during the game, but Foster reacted brilliantly to keep the scoreline down.

Nevertheless, the Hornets still ended up on the losing side and Kabasele felt the rest of the team simply didn't do their job.

"Without the save of Kepa we would have one point," said the Belgian defender.

"But we can't rely on our goalkeeper to save the team every week, so we will work and see what's happening.

"We lost the game so it's difficult to say we played better. I think the last 20 minutes of the first half was okay, but the main part of the game we didn't do our job."

With key games against relegation rivals Norwich and Southampton coming up in the near future, as well as a game against Burnley, the next three games could be vital for the Hornets if they are to have any chance of staying up. 

However, Kabasele said Watford are not paying attention to where others are in the table and instead focusing only on themselves.

"Each game is important in our situation, we need to try to take the points where we can and keep working," he said.

"We focus only on ourself. If we do our job, we give the last position to another team, so we don't look what's happening in other teams, we have enough to work in our team."

Despite going a club-record 11 games without a league win at the start of a campaign, Kabasele insists Watford are still together and still believe they can secure Premier League safety.

"We're disappointed, when you don't win you're always disappointed. For the moment it's the same every week," he said.

"When you don't win, there's no other feelings to have. As I said last week, it's only up to us to change the situation.

"We need to keep working to keep believing and let's see what happens next week. We stick together. There's a lot of games remaining, so we are still together of course."
