Watford won't be distracted by the FA Cup Final, insists Gracia

"We spoke with the players, they felt our support and it's all we can do in this moment, try to be together, to help them and nothing else".

"It was a good conversation about football because Javi Gracia is also a football man".

Gracia gave his players three days off following their semi-final exertions but he has no intention of rotating his squad for Premier League duty with seventh spot still up for grabs. I can't explain what the referee saw to make that decision.

"I can't understand how these things are happening, but I can't have control over these things".

"I also met with (Manchester City midfielder) David Silva in Valencia past year and he said to me, "Coach, if you can, come to England, it is the best football and the best atmosphere for you also".

The Gunners take on Watford on Monday night in the Premier League, as Arsenal look to go level on points with Chelsea in the race for the top four, but if it wasn't for Gracia's advice, Emery may not have been in the dugout at all.

The Wales midfielder has been a consistent performer in the Arsenal team this season and he has been earning lots of praise for his recent displays.

"We don't have one final, we have seven finals left to play".

Soon after, Watford skipper Troy Deeney was shown a straight red card, compounding their misery and giving them a mountain to climb all game. It was an important game for us, he knew it.

He said: "I think we can control the match better". "I am not interested in the result, we had our chances, hit the woodwork and created chances with 10 players".

Unai Emery's plans this season has been seriously hampered by a series of defensive injuries and the manager is planning to bring in some reinforcements during the summer.
