  • Ben Foster has admitted the Watford squad are struggling for confidence 
  • Watford were thrashed 4-0 by Manchester City as they dropped into drop zone
  • They now face Arsenal on the final day of the Premier League in bid to survive 

Ben Foster has admitted spirits need to be lifted in the Watford dressing room after their 4-0 defeat to Manchester City.

After sacking manager Nigel Pearson on Sunday, the Hornets had no answer as Pep Guardiola’s side ran riot at Vicarage Road in the penultimate round of matches in the Premier League season. 

Raheem Sterling scored an impressive first-half brace whilst Phil Foden and Aymeric Laporte piled on the misery for the hosts, being managed interim head coach Hayden Mullins.

Foster told Sky Sports: ‘The confidence is so crazy, crazy low, I don’t know why it should be, but you get into a state of trying to minimise as much damage as you can and it’s a dangerous way to do things.’

On Pearson’s departure, Foster added: ‘We’re well versed in what goes on at this club and it is what it is. You just get used to it. In football nowadays, nothing seems to shock and you roll with the punches.

‘You can’t ever blame it on anything but your own performances. We have to look at ourselves.’
