Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores says he remains focused on securing Premier League safety - despite sitting one point off the Champions League places.
A Nathan Ake strike and two from Odion Ighalo helped Watford to a comfortable 3-0 win over Liverpool at Vicarage Road, keeping the Hornets in seventh place behind Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
After a successful season so far, Flores understands why the fans are beginning to 'dream', but says his primary aim is to keep the newly-promoted club in the division.

"Our target is to stay in the category (Premier League). It's very important for Watford that we continue growing. I am focused completely on this target," he told Sky Sports.
"Of course, the people, the players and everyone can dream - because the dream is very free.
When asked whether it was a special time for Watford, Flores replied: "Absolutely. We are working like a group - fans, players and workers in the club. Everyone is pushing in the same direction.It's completely amazing and in these times, it's easy to work."
Liverpool failed to cope with Watford strikers Troy Deeney and Ighalo throughout the Super Sunday clash, with Flores quick to praise the duo's 'connection' up front.
He said: "They're not completely similar, but they're strikers with the same characteristics. They're working a lot for the team in terms of the defence, so it's very important."
