Javi Gracia speaks about Sarr & Welbeck ahead of Newcastle

Watford still searching for points

Watford have had a terrible start to the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

Three games in, they are the only side in the English top-flight not to have earned a single point.

So far, they have lost to Brighton, Everton and West Ham United.

They now face a Newcastle side who beat Tottenham 1-0 last weekend.

Gracia on Welbeck & Sarr

Heading into the game, Watford fans will likely be hoping that both Danny Welbeck and Ismaila Sarr can start, and provide some much-needed attacking support.

The Hornets are currently the lowest scorers in the PL, netting just one in three games.

However, new signings Welbeck and Sarr have yet to start a league outing for the club.

The duo would start during the week, as Watford beat Coventry 3-0 in the League Cup. Sarr would score his first Watford goal in that clash.

Javi Gracia has since spoken about Sarr and Welbeck, stating that they both need time to show their best quality and condition.

“These two players need time.

“They need time to show their best quality, their best condition, but in this moment we need all of them. We will see and decide if they start or play some minutes.” As quoted by Watford’s official website.
