The win came courtesy of quickfire goals from Troy Deeney and Nathaniel Chalobah towards the end of the first half and moved Watford to within a point of second-placed Hull, who face Barnsley at Oakwell on Saturday.

A win for Steve Bruce's side over their lowly opponents would confirm Hull's place in the Premier League next season and condemn Watford to the play-offs.

But Zola said: "I think it will go down to the final day, I hope so.

"In this league nothing is certain, it has been that way all season. Any team can beat any team - as we have seen.

"I'm sure it will go right down until the end, and it will be exciting. I will keep an eye (on the Hull game) but I will also try to relax, of course.

"We have done what we needed to do and now we have to hope that a good result will come from somewhere else.

"I am very proud of my players. I think our performance in the first half was

remarkable, and we also played a very good team.

"It was a great game with some very good football - Premier League football."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
