Javi Gracia insists Watford remain mentally strong after their perfect Premier League start was ended by Manchester United.

The Hornets will look to get back to winning ways at Fulham in today's early TV game after United beat them 2-1 last weekend.

Gracia's squad are only three points behind leaders Chelsea and Liverpool, so the Spaniard remains positive.

"We had a good performance last week regardless of the result. We played well, we didn't get a result, but I'm pleased with the performance," the Watford boss said.

"After four wins in a row, the team is mentally strong."

Fulham were beaten 3-0 at Manchester City last time out - a third Premier League defeat on their return to the top flight.

But Slavisa Jokanovic's side won their previous home match 4-2 against Burnley.

Gracia added: "Fulham are playing really well, so I know it will be a tough game. They are a team who like having possession.''
