Claudio Ranieri has warned his Watford side they cannot afford to rest on last weekend’s superb win at Everton as they look to build on it against Southampton tomorrow.

The Hornets twice came from behind to win 5-2 at Goodison Park and pick up their first three points under the Italian, having been hammered 5-0 by Liverpool in his first game in charge.

“Of course the boost [beating Everton] was very important, as were the three points on the table, but we must forget what happened and continue in this way,” Ranieri said. “We have a difficult match because every match in the Premier League is difficult, we must be careful and play with intelligence.

“I think we played so badly against Liverpool and very well against Everton, now I want to see the next match against Southampton.”

Ranieri has Danny Rose back from the calf problem which ruled him out of the Everton win.
