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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
