Watford manager Marco Silva hailed his side's impressive showing on Boxing Day as the Hornets ran out 2-1 winners against Leicester City at Vicarage Road.
The hosts found themselves behind thanks to Riyad Mahrez's sixth league goal of the season, before Molla Wague's first goal of the season on the stroke of half time and a second half Kasper Schmeichel own-goal gave Watford the three points, much to the delight of Silva.
Speaking post-match to Sky Sports, he said: "We controlled the match. One moment they score, and recently, it has not gone for us when we go behind. Last performance it did not go well.
"Today, we showed very good personality, a big mentality to react like we did after it went 1-0.
"This is our normal mentality. Of course the last few results have made our players a little uncomfortable, but we were good this afternoon."
The victory for Watford was their first in the league
"Now it is important to rest, we then play again at home, and we need the support of the fans here all the time, through good times and bad."
Silva and Watford won't have to wait too long for their next home game, as they host a struggling Swansea side in their final game of 2017.
