Watford boss Nigel Pearson has shown that he’s gracious in defeat after his side were beaten 3-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night.

Watford needed the points in their quest to stay in the Premier League, as they are currently involved in a weird relegation battle.

Pearson insisted after the Chelsea game that he was happier with his side’s display against the Blues.

According to Pearson, his players showed no fear against Chelsea and had desire to get a positive result.

He has now urged his lads to get points from their next three games – against Norwich, Newcastle and West Ham.

The Vicarage Road boss, whose side are a point clear of trouble after four defeats in five outings, admitted after the defeat to Chelsea: “We need to back ourselves.

“We can have no fear about our situation or the run-in.

“We know we have a huge week coming up. Those games look easier…on paper…but there is no such thing in the Premier League..

“For us, it’s about taking the positives from tonight – the collective side, our desire and flashes of quality into these matches.

“We have to try and keep our destiny in our own hands. What happens elsewhere is elsewhere.”
