Javi Gracia has picked up the first Manager of the Month award of the 2018/19 Premier League season after guiding Watford through a flawless first month.

For the first time in their history, the Hornets have started a top-flight campaign with four wins from four – against Brighton, Burnley, Crystal Palace, and most impressive of all, Tottenham – to find themselves third in the table, level on points with both Liverpool and Chelsea above them.

If you happen to be wondering why Gracia is wet through in the photo above, please allow us to explain…

Of course, the MotM award is an instant kiss of death and Watford will now be bottom by Christmas with Gracia but a distant memory.

That’s football. That’s the way it is. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    I know the current Man City love in as at an all time high what with the documentary and all but Watford are two points ahead of them….presume you meant Liverpool and Chelsea!

    Unlikely to stay that way for too long of course.

    This documentary is that one where they wore shirts ”WE DID IT ON DERBY DAY” just to lose 3-2 against United at home ?

    Ha. Fucking idiots.
