Watford manager Javi Gracia has praised the 'character and desire' shown by his players in the Hornets' 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Tuesday night.
"We knew it was very demanding for us. We have to work hard all game and try and have options at the end. At the end you saw them wasting time, we have been close to getting a result but they are a very good team - they deserved to win.
"Ben Foster was great, it is no surprise to me. When I came to London I thought Big Ben was in the city but no, he is in Watford for us!
"City control possession but we have been organised. We try to press higher but they are very good, very dangerous.
"You know they always dominate the game and create a lot of chances. Ben Foster was amazing, we showed very good spirit until the end and in the last few minutes we had the option to get a better result.
"I am proud of my players, it is difficult to compete with this very good team. We showed character and desire."
