The Hornets currently sit fourth in the table and just a point behind fellow promotion chasers Leicester and Hull City, having won four of their last five league encounters.

Italian defender Cassetti, on loan at Vicarage Road from Serie A club Udinese, says Watford are looking up.

The 35-year-old told The Independent: "Watford this year has the possibility to look up, to join the Premier League, because we have a good team and good players, young players with a great future. We know it is not easy but we can."

Cassetti is enjoying life at Watford after arriving at the beginning of the season from Udinese; also owned by Italian businessman Giampaolo Pozzo.

The defender joined the Bianconeri as a free agent when his contract at Roma expired in the summer.

"I was a free agent in June," he said. "I spoke with Pozzo, he said 'you sign for Udinese but you go on loan to Watford immediately.'

"I am happy - football in England is one of my dreams and now I am here."

Cassetti says he joked with former Roma team-mate and reported Manchester City target Daniele De Rossi over a Championship move following his row with recently-dismissed coach Zdenek Zeman at the Stadio Olimpico.

"I asked De Rossi to come here in January because of a problem with the trainer, he did not play," he added.

"When Zeman was a problem I asked him 'will you come here?' - 'I'll come!' - but Roma didn't want. But now Zeman is sacked, I think now he will start to play."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
