Janmaat vows to keep Hornets buzzing after emphatic start

Southampton 0 Watford 2

By Andy Sims

Daryl Janmaat is confident Watford can maintain their flying start to the Premier League season.

The Hornets are up to fourth in the standings after goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Janmaat sank Southampton 2-0 at St Mary's.

Watford host joint leaders Manchester City next weekend and defender Janmaat sees the clash as another chance to show they really mean business this term.

"We're unbeaten with eight points from four games so it's a fantastic start to the season," he said.

"We have got to continue like this and on Saturday we have Manchester City at home and a great opportunity to try to stay up with them.

"We are playing with a lot of confidence at the moment. We have a good team, some good signings, a lot of strength in the team and pace up front.

"I think we can threaten a lot of teams with the way we are playing and we can have a great season."

French midfielder Doucoure broke the deadlock when he pounced from the edge of the area seven minutes before half-time.

Janmaat settled the match when he rifled in the second from 25 yards just five minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino has vowed to get to the root of his side's struggles in front of goal.

He said: "It was tough for everybody but we have to keep going and keep working.

"I am here because the team was in trouble last season. If everything was perfect there would be a different manager here.

"In the other games we created a lot of chances and could have won the games. Today was the most difficult game.

"Obviously I'm not happy with our performance today. But to score goals is not just for the strikers."
