Watford boss Javi Gracia maintains his players will not have one eye on the FA Cup final when they host Arsenal on Monday.

The Hornets will be back at Wembley on May 18 to face Manchester City after their dramatic 3-2 extra-time win over Wolves last weekend.

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.

The Spaniard said: "I try to choose the best players for the next game. I am only thinking about trying to win the next game.

"The players had three days off and were ready to start preparing. We have enough time as we play on Monday. We don't have only one final - we have seven finals. All of them are focused on the next game."
