Watford coach Marco Silva has urged his players to learn their lessons as they prepare to take on Swansea City – just a week after their 6-0 loss to Manchester City.

The Hornets dropped down to 11th in the Premier League table after their embarrassing defeat at home last weekend.

A hat-trick from Sergio Aguero and further efforts from Gabriel Jesus, Nicolas Otamendi and Raheem Sterling did the damage at Vicarage Road.

Before the game, Watford were unbeaten under Silva having picked up two wins and two draws.

Despite the defeat, the former Hull City coach has urged his team to learn and move on, insisting his team must think positively.

“It is important we analyse the match, like we do every time,” he told reporters.

“This is a good match for us to learn something [from]. There is always something important to learn.

Now is the moment to react. It was a bad afternoon but it was in the past and we must look forward.

“It is always important you forget nothing – the good things and the others. We did some things in the wrong way, which we need to improve.

“We need to continue doing what we did well before [the Manchester City defeat].”

Watford travel to Swansea on Saturday, with the Swans 2.38 favourites to win. The draw is priced at 3.25, while Watford are available at odds of 3.10.
