Quique Sanchez Flores claims he is "not worried" about his future and reflected on the significant effect the first goal had following the 3-0 defeat to Burnley.

Watford were the better side in the first half, but their failure to turn this into a lead was to cost them as the Clarets sealed their first away victory of the season with goals from Chris Wood, and Ashley Barnes penalty and James Tarkowski.

“In the first half we were happy in the dressing room,” the Hornets head coach said. “Positive, thinking about keeping going with the performance, thinking about we have under control against the opponent, thinking about we are playing the ball quick, thinking about we are playing close to the box of the other team and thinking about we had the best chances. All of this in the first half.”

However, he admitted Burnley’s opening goal changed everything, continuing. “[It] affects a lot our mentality, affect a lot our spirit, affect a lot our energy and the other team got more power and more confidence, it was more difficult.”

The defeat sent the Hornets back to the bottom of the Premier League, effectively four points from safety due to their goal difference, but asked about this predicament Sanchez Flores said: “It’s football. After winning at Norwich we didn’t think everything was solved, but after defeat we don’t think that everything was wrong. It’s football, it’s a long race and we need to be positive thinking about where we can improve.”

Asked about his own position, the Hornets boss responded: “It’s time, it’s time, it’s belief, it’s belief, it’s fight, it’s fight, it’s all these kind of things that we can do to help but it’s not (his position as head coach) in my control."

He added about his position: “I’m not worried about anything.”
