Andre Gray: Hornets can secure seventh place

Andre Gray maintains Watford have what it takes to secure seventh spot in the Premier League before finishing the campaign with an FA Cup final against Manchester City.

The Hornets produced a memorable comeback from 2-0 down to beat Wolves after extra time in last weekend’s semi-final and secure a return to Wembley against the Citizens on May 18.

Before then, Javi Gracia’s side have six Premier League games to focus on, starting against Arsenal, who head into the game on the back of a 2-0 win over Napoli, on Monday night.

With matches in hand on the sides above them, Gray is adamant Watford can finish the season in seventh – a position that could be good enough for entry into the qualifying rounds of next season’s Europa League.

“We have set a record for the club now and there’s a lot more points to play for,” he told the club’s official website.

“We want to finish as high as we can and try to get that seventh spot.

“It’s in our hands – and we’ve still got to play Wolves again. People talk about our season in terms of the FA Cup, but I don’t think you can look past our league form and what we’ve done.

“We’ve been unlucky against a lot of the big teams, but we’ve got two of them (coming up) including Arsenal and Chelsea, and hopefully we can put that right.”

Watford are priced at 3.10 to pick up all three points at Vicarage Road on Monday night, the draw is the outside shot at 3.65 while Arsenal are 2.25 favourites.
