[Watford 0-3 Arsenal] I’m a little frustrated. In the first half we played really well. We have to make an amazing effort if we want to make the level. We have to be positive with our first hour. The match was finished in a 10-15 minute spell. I am really happy with the first half performance. We had chances and I felt we would get the first goal.

[Quique Sanchez Flores stopped short of saying Arsenal are the best side Watford have faced so far this season] There is not a lot of difference between Manchester City and Arsenal, they both have amazing players

[Watford vs Arsenal. Flores is certainly wary of the threat Arsenal will offer, having played against sides coached by Emery on numerous occasions, and told his club’s website that he will hope to shock his opposite number in his first game in charge] I know Unai, he is a very clever guy. He is always thinking about how he can take advantage in different situations, he is very good in set-pieces, he is always very hard in the work, very constant. We know each other so of course we will try to surprise each other. The characteristics of a player of course define how the teams play, but it’s not just Aubameyang. It’s Aubameyang, Lacazette, Pepe, the midfielders, the way they defend and the way we can attack, it’s many things. We try to get a good result to give to the players right now three key points to help us

[Manchester City vs Watford. Flores has called upon his side to help support the 21-year-old Senegal international, backing Ismaila Sarr to come good when he is needed to] Sarr is a really young player and we need to be patient with this player. We need to give him support. He is really fast, with skills and is a modern forward. We have a big circle around him and we need to care about him.

[Quique Sanchez Flores attributed the heavy loss, 8-0 against Man City, to a litany of errors from his side] We made a lot of mistakes. The result is very difficult [to take], but it’s the consequences of mistakes in different ways. All the goals we conceded came from different things and it’s difficult to play like this against Manchester City. We will take the best things from the Arsenal game and try to solve all the things from this game

[Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores has claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is the best coach in the Premier League in the last four years] I love him. He is the best coach in the Premier League in the last four years, this is my opinion. When I was [last] at Watford I thought he was the best coach in the way he moved the team and the way the team played. Of course now it is a difficult moment for him and for the team, but for me he is the best coach in the last four years in the Premier League

[Asked if he expected his opposite number to stay at Spurs long term] It is up to you, the critics, it’s not up to me. It depends on the results. The results bring in the critics

[Watford’s Quique Sanchez Flores was vocal about the confused VAR decision, stating his belief that the goal should not have stood after Harry Kane appeared to foul Christian Kabasele in the build-up] A point is a good result at the Tottenham Stadium but we were close to winning the match, it was just in the last minute we lost that opportunity. Little by little we are growing. We are getting more competitive but we need to win. Today we were close. We had opportunities in the match so it’s a pity we didn’t win. It was really good but a clean sheet would have been good. It is an amazing result. When you are so close to winning, it is disappointing. I believe it is a foul. He pushed with both hands but that is my opinion. It is a little bit different. I don’t think they need VAR

[Quique Sanchez Flores replaced Javi Gracia after a slow start to the season but was unable to rectify poor results] It’s sad because if I can help the team I suffer, I suffer for the fans, I suffer for the players and I suffer for the owner of course. It’s the way I chose, I can’t do anything for that. I would regret if they came to my house and they said: ‘you can help us’ and I stay there. This is not me, it’s not my character. If I stay in my comfort zone it’s not me. I came here and I’m trying and fighting a lot, although the circumstances are bad for us

[Sanchez Flores calls for patience with deadline day signing] Mainly, the problem is how they train in China. It is not the same as in England. Is he really ready for first-team matches in the Premier League because the physical difference is so big? He probably needs one month to recover the full rhythm. The good thing is he knows his body well, works hard on injury prevention and he is always working after training. I should say, also, that I felt in China, he gave exactly the same effort and quality as he gave me four years ago. We had the feeling in China that he could recover a high level with any team in Europe

I have an amazing impression of the player. I fell in love with him. As a guy, he’s professional. He’s a straight arrow. As a person, his life is private. He has strong Christian values and he is respectful. As a player, it is difficult to explain Ighalo. His first quality is he can protect the ball and he gives time to the team to get up the field and win the second ball. It’s so difficult to get the ball from him. He’s stronger than he looks. Four years ago, when we put ball in the space, he was also super fast. Now, with five years difference, he is a bit different … but he will always be fine in a physical battle. We played him up front in a two with Troy Deeney and they knew each other inside out but he is absolutely fine to play as a lone frontman, too. One of his most valuable qualities is that his team-mates very quickly learn his strengths and he adapts very well
