Watford defender Adrian Mariappa turned in Alireza Jahanbakhsh’s cross for an own goal in the 78th minute to give Albion a potentially crucial point, and the Belgian said the side showed their character once again in a tense encounter.

Trossard said, “I think we have done well in our last two games, against West Ham and now [against Watford].

“It is not easy if you are 1-0 or 2-0 down at half-time in the Premier League, but you can still react. We maybe could have beaten them, but it’s something we have to keep in mind heading into the next game.

“It is a nice feeling recovering from a goal down to claim a point. We put a lot of effort in and we did everything in our power to try to win. It is a shame we couldn’t get the three points.”

Graham Potter’s side are not in action for another two weeks until they face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on 22nd February, and the Belgian feels the break has come at a good time.

He added, “We have some days off and get some rest. It is a good thing for the mind too and everyone will come back, recharged and ready to get back to business in the Sheffield game.”
