Javier Gracia says he is savouring the moment after being named the Barclays Manager of the Month for August.

The Watford head coach won the award after guiding the Hornets to three successive victories from the start of a Premier League season for the first time.

Watford opened with a 2-0 home victory over Brighton & Hove Albion before winning 3-1 at Burnley and then overcoming Crystal Palace 2-1 at Vicarage Road.

"I am very pleased," said Gracia. "We are enjoying [it]. You never know what will happen.

"Don't look only at the end of the road. Try to enjoy day by day. Try to enjoy the very good atmosphere, the workers who are helping us, the supporters in all the games are amazing.

"I think altogether we can achieve very good things."

It is the Spaniard's first Barclays Manager of the Month award and only the second to be won by a Watford manager after Quique Sanchez Flores in December 2015.

Gracia was selected by a combination of votes from a panel of experts and from the public, beating Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp, SpursMauricio Pochettino and the Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri.
