Xisco Munoz played down the severity of an incident between Watford players Joao Pedro and Ismaila Sarr at the end of their 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

As the game was coming to its conclusion, a misplaced pass seemed to cause an argument between the two players, which then resulted in the pair shoving one another briefly moments later.

On the full time whistle, both players quickly made their way down the tunnel, but the head coach insisted nothing untoward happened afterwards and said the squabble was simply a result of his players' focus on the match.

"This is the passion," said Munoz. "This is the passion you have when you are in the pitch.

"I understand the guys, it's normal. We need continue and after, when they came inside everything was okay, it was good. It was only one moment of drama, we have everyone with too much attention on the games and it's normal and only passion."

The argument between his own players was not the only issue of discipline to arise from the match, with captain Troy Deeney perhaps fortunate to not see red for a deliberate foul on Juninho Bacuna right in front of the coaches' technical areas.

However, Munoz again was quick to diminish the seriousness of the challenge and instead said he had been happy with Deeney's performance.

“He didn’t touch him – he touched the ball, no,” said the Spaniard with a smile. “No, I don’t think it was an action for a red card. I am happy with Troy because he was involved in all the action and this is good for the team.”
