He told Sky Sports: "I'm a Chelsea fan and I can not see them winning the league one bit".
He said: "They are not at their top level yet, but I don't see anybody who did that so far, to 100 per cent - that is because we are in the early part of the season". The question now is how, exactly, Watford has managed to pull this off-and can they really compete at the upper end of the table over the course of an entire 38-game season? "We have good players to play football so at the moment we are enjoying games but we see a strong team when we are losing games".
"I think at home we are a match for anyone", he said. It was similar to Palace and Brighton last week at Anfield.
"It's four games in and we've seen past year that there's a lot of quality teams in this league - it's not going to be easy to carry on this run - so we've got to keep our feet on the ground".
The Reds have scored one more goal than the same point last season. But that back four, I don't think they can win the league with that back four.
"It is brilliant but we can't get carried away too much", Hughes told the club website. Then he's been put under pressure and obviously tried a Cruyff but it's not quite worked. He's a confident lad and even today he made two or three great saves, so we'll concentrate on that and it's only a small blip.
While the Hornets won't be getting ahead of themselves, fans have already started dreaming of going on to win the Premier League after an incredible statistic was unearthed.
