Ikechi Anya takes positives from loss to Tottenham Hotspur

31 December 2015, 17:50

Watford's Anglo - Nigerian wing - back Ikechi Anya, has reflected on the Hornets 2 - 1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur in the latest round of matches played in the Barclays Premier League.

"That’s what we are about this year, we are all working hard and putting in 100 per cent, which was really epitomised today in the performance,'' Anya told Hornets PlayerHD after the game at Vicarage Road.

''We were talking about it after the game when we were reflecting, and the only chances they had really were the goals. They didn’t create much, but as much as it is a positive, it hurts as well. '' Watford players were left scratching their heads after the visitors struck in the last minute to snatch all three points but Anya has praised his teammates for working their socks off , especially as they played the last 30 minutes a man short after Nathan Ake was shown a straight red card.

''When you go down to 10 men it’s a grind, but I thought we did really well.

''It's hard to take, but if you can take a positive that’s the resilience.

Aké was sent off in the 60th minute and we battled well all the way to the end, it was just a shame we couldn’t do it,'' he concluded.

Monday evening's defeat to Spurs was the first time Watford lost in six games. They host Manchester City on Saturday.
