Quique Flores targets victory at Old Trafford

Quique Sanchez Flores says that Watford's Wednesday night meeting against Manchester United provides a real "opportunity" to collect maximum points.

Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores has targeted all three points when his side travel to take on Manchester United at Old Trafford in midweek.

The Hornets head to the Theatre of Dreams on the back of a run of one defeat in their last five top-flight outings, which leaves them sitting in the top half of the table.

United have injury problems to contend with, meanwhile, offering Flores and his charges a chance to pull off what would be considered a big upset in their first season back in the big time.

"Sometimes when we plan for the match, it's like we always need to be inside of the manager's head on the other team," the Spaniard is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"I don't know exactly how [Louis] Van Gaal is thinking about the next match or what his focus will be. They have a lot of targets in this moment and play a lot of matches. For us, it is an opportunity to have points.

"We know we are very competitive and we can go every single step to win. We have 37 points and we are happy."

Flores also hinted that he is likely to rest midfielder Etienne Capoue for Wednesday night's clash due to fatigue.
