Claudio Ranieri wants Watford fans to create a good atmosphere

Claudio Ranieri has called on Watford fans to cheer on their side to win against Norwich City tonight in what he knows will be a great game.

The Hornets are looking to build on the point they salvaged in the death against Newcastle against another of their relegation rivals.

The Italian called on Vicarage Road fans to play their part as best they can.

“It’s very big. It was big against Newcastle, another crash between two teams who want to stay in the Premier League, and we need the support of our home crowd,” Ranieri said.

“We need passion, we need everything and I’m sure we’ll have a very good game.”

Both teams enter the match with a change of momentum, with Dean Smith’s Norwich beating Everton 2-1 while Pedro grabbed that equalizer on Tyneside.

The result moved the Canaries from bottom and up to 18th place, just one position and one point behind the Hornets, who have yet to drop into the relegation zone this season despite winning just three times in the league. elite this season.

Ranieri added: “Yes of course we have to win but we don’t want to lose.

“It’s a very important game for us, for them and it’s also a very good game for the Premier League.

“I see how my players work during training, they are very focused on what we are doing. They have qualities and of course they train with heart and passion. We want to create a good atmosphere between us and the public and, together pushing to give good satisfaction to our fans and our players as well.”
