It’s safe to say Watford captain Troy Deeney doesn’t take losing to a team of 10 men very well.
The Hornets forward spoke to Match Of The Day after his side lost 2-0 to 10-man Hull, who had Oumar Niasse sent off on 25 minutes, and did not hold back in his assessment of the group performance.

“One team had a set of balls and ran and kicked and did all the horrible stuff, and the other team just wanted to play a game like it was Fifa,” said Deeney.
“I’m not in the business of apologising to fans but that weren’t fair on fans,” he continued. “It’s a long old dig to get up to there, and yeah, we’ve got a moral responsibility to play a lot better than that.”
Relegation strugglers Hull were left to play with 10 men for more than two-thirds of the game, but against all odds, goals from Lazar Markovic and Sam Clucas earned Marco Silva’s side an unexpected win.
With 65.6% of the possession, it’s no wonder Deeney was a little annoyed – sitting 10th in the league, are Watford on the beach already?
