Flores happy with back-to-back wins

Highlights – Bayer 04 Leverkusen vs 1. FSV Mainz 05

Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores was delighted after seeing his side make it two wins in a row with a 2-1 victory over Newcastle on Saturday.

Odion Ighalo netted twice in the first half to fire the Hornets to the win, despite Daryl Janmaat's second-half consolation.

And following their win over Swansea last weekend, Flores was happy to have earned consecutive wins and praised his players after losing just once in their first six games.

"We deserved it because we played really well," he said after the game. "We have a very positive mentality and we always think we can win games.

"I am really pleased we have so much confidence. We are building a new team but we are playing as if we have played together for a long time.

"The plan was working and I am really happy because this was a very difficult match. To win two games is very difficult in this league. The performance of the players made the plan perfect.

"We tried to conserve the score in the first minutes because we know the nerves of Newcastle could be good for us as time passed but then we scored.

"The players defended very well and reduced the space. We are improving with the ball and with the way we keep it, so we are very happy with the performance.

"I am enjoying every second in this competition. I have had experience in other leagues but for me to come here to the Premier League is an honour. I try to do my best and I am happy to get two consecutive wins."
