Flores targeting win against Norwich

Quique Sanchez Flores insists Watford will be going all out for victory when they face Norwich on Wednesday even if it confirms the Canaries relegation from the Premier League.

Norwich need a victory against Watford to have any hope of avoiding the drop, but even that might not be enough as a win for Sunderland on the same night would consign them to life in the Championship next season.

Flores has sympathy for Norwich's plight but believes it is important to field his strongest possible side out of respect for the Premier League.

"I don't like to play against Norwich and Sunderland because they are fighting against relegation and it's always very sad, but in this case we are the bad boy in the film. This is our role and we need to play it," Flores told his pre-match press conference.

"It's important for us and it's good for us that we have the necessity to be competitive because I know we are expecting to play against a very tough team, because Norwich need the victory.

"For us it will be important to go to the pitch with the idea to play well, to think about how we can stop Norwich, to play football and to score goals.

"This is our idea because we need to be competitive and to show everyone that we respect the Premier League, so of course it is a serious match for us.

"Our responsibility is to win and to choose the best team. We need to be competitive, we need to respect the other team, and other teams don't need to have any doubts about us because we will use the best players we can."
