The Hornets are now 17th on the table with 34 points after 36 league appearances - just three points better than 18th place Bournemouth.
"You get to a point in football where you are not surprised any more, but I would say this one surprised me and took me back a bit", Deeney said. He was just frustrated and had a firm talking to us.
"I just want to put it out there, there was no fight at half-time", Deeney told BeIN Sports on Monday.

Watford began the campaign with Javi Gracia at the helm but he was sacked in September and replaced by Quique Sanchez Flores who returned for a second spell.

"It's not an easy place to go, I don't think anyone expects it to be but we will go up there and hopefully give it a right good go".
