The smooth Stroud showed only four yellow cards when both managers thought red should have been embroidered. Watson insisted that players abroad learn something about the championship.
"In other competitions you can be tackled, spin around and get free kicks and bookings," he said. "Sometimes in this competition you can definitely catch someone and nothing will be done about it. That happened a few times today. "

This was their first Premier League victory at the Vitality Stadium since November 2. Since then they had suffered 10 defeats in 12 games and slipped in the bottom 3.
Yet this offered Howe & # 39; s men a much needed lift. Even Callum Wilson scored and ended a drought causing the striker to go into the Premier League for 1318 minutes without a goal.
for Brighton, this drew them further in view, with the Graham Potter men winning only one of their last nine. They got the most from the ball, but didn't do much with it.
Wilson had not scored in the top flight since September, while Dominic Solanke still had to open his Premier League account for Bournemouth, despite signing in January 2019.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James lead the changing of the guard by Frank Lampard … the Chelsea youth forge their own promising paths
- Chelsea beaten Burnley 3-0 in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon
- Callum Hudson-Odoi scored his first ever Premier League goal for the Blues
- Reece James continued his exceptional on Introduction to top flight football
The Jamie Carragher once cruelly said: no child wants grow up to be Gary Neville. You would also imagine few young future dreams to imitate Carlton Cole.
Fortunately for Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi, those comparisons would not really be a burden. And not because the bar has been set particularly low.
But together this couple forged their own promising ways.
James, the older statesmen of 20, belongs to a generation that redefines the role of full back. Meanwhile, nineteen-year-old Hudson-Odoi begins to show why Chelsea made him one of the best-paid teenagers.
On Stamford Bridge on Saturday, they stood together on the right flank of the Blues. Across the street were Cesar Azpilicueta and Willian. It was a powerful illustration of Frank Lampard & # 39; s changing of the guard.
And so often this season masters and students played their part. Willian was a constant threat and won the penalty that Chelsea set off. Meanwhile, Azpilicueta made last-ditch blocks to deny Jack Cork and Chris Wood before moving to Hudson-Odoi to score his first main goal.
The Chelsea captain may have been stuck on the right flank in recent years. But his versatility has enabled Lampard to close a hole on the left, while James & # 39; exceptional introduction to top football made the transition seamless.
No wonder Chelsea Allegedly they try to tie him to a long-term deal after only 11 Premier League appearances.
& # 39; He is a good soccer player in terms of his consciousness, not just his crosses, which really catch the eye. He can play, & # 39; said Lampard. & # 39; There are clearly things that he can improve and we will work defensively with him on the training field. It was nice to see the combination between him and Callum today. It was very dangerous for Burnley and we made good use of it. & # 39;
In this 3-0 win, James (10) and Hudson-Odoi (eight) transferred eight times more than the rest of their teammates together.
No Chelsea player also created more opportunities than the three of them each. And no defender got a round like poor Charlie Taylor. This wasn't quite the public torture that the couple inflicted on Yuri Ribeiro in Nottingham Forest last weekend, but Jetro Willems from Newcastle is hardly counting down until they visit St James & Park.
As with the rest of Lampard & # 39; s own country stars, this budding combination could soon be to England's advantage. & # 39; Hopefully, & # 39; said Lampard. "It is the beginning of cooperation and it needs to be worked on and it needs to be tightened."
James and Hudson-Odoi passed each other 29 times against Burnley – the third of all Chelsea pairs. To illustrate the point of their manager, William and Azpilicueta succeeded in 34. & # 39; They both have different talents. When Callum is higher and runs towards people and is aggressive as he was today, and Reece is behind him, it is of course a big thing, "Lampard said.
Their portrayal should have caught the English manager's attention Gareth Southgate Hudson-Odoi has already worked in the English senior team and it seems only a matter of time before James joins him.
After all, few players ended up so seamlessly in the Premier League and European football "The only problem with James? England is pretty well filled right back. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier are all fighting for a few spots.
" a lot of quality in that area, & # 39; said Lampard. & # 39; He doesn't have to worry about that, he has to settle for what he is doing now. The last few games have done that, but that has to be about happen over a certain period of time foliage in Reece and its quality. If he works hard, he will get where he wants to be. & # 39;
So also Hudson-Odoi if he stays in this spirit. He and James are developing into a crucial part of the Chelsea revolution at Lampard. Together they could quickly spread their wings to the world stage.

Callum Hudson-Odoi admits that leaving Chelsea for Bayern Munich was in his mind last season after lack of playing time under Maurizio Sarri … but winger insists he is happy at Stamford Bridge
- Callum Hudson-Odoi says he is considering leaving Chelsea to Bayern Munich
- Blues winger was often left on the bench during Maurizio Sarri's reign
- But the teenager says that he is & # 39; grateful & # 39; feels after signing a new five-year deal
The Bundesliga champions tried to lure Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea during the transfer window of January 2019 where the 19-year-old was limited to irregular replacement appearances under Blues boss Maurizio Sarri.
But England's international international insists that he should never leave Chelsea & # 39; although he discussed a possible move with his family and committed his long-term future in the club by a new five-year contract to be signed.
HUDSON-ODOI IN 2019-20
I discussed this with the family and thought: & # 39; I just want to play games & # 39 ;, and at that time I didn't play enough, & # 39; Hudson-Odoi told The Sun
I would not say that I was about to leave, but it was in my mind. What happened in January happened. But I have signed my contract and I am happy here – everything is going well.
& # 39; It was a roller coaster year. Many things have happened that have taught me and thought about it. I just had to come back, be confident, be myself, score, watch – and show what I can do. & # 39;
& # 39; I would say that I am grateful. I feel happy with what happened, & Hudson-Odoi added.
& # 39; The injury is an experience you learn from because I didn't know these things before.
& It happened I am first. And the transfer request taught me about situations like that.
& # 39; The English thing, the debut of the Champions League and a change of manager taught me a lot. I would say "experienced" is the word.
& # 39; I am now more mature, it has made me wiser. It reminds me that everything happened for a reason, so I have to be thankful and thank God.
& # 39; There are times when I lean back and think of myself what a crazy 12 months it has been. Good or bad, everything happens for a reason. So you must always be grateful. & # 39;
Callum Hudson-Odoi & # 39; ready to sign a new deal & # 39; at Chelsea after talks with new boss Frank Lampard
According to Doel the English international is ready to new deal after a conversation with Lampard in one of his first acts since returning to Stamford Bridge as boss.
The 18-year-old is currently recovering from an injury after missing the back of last season after tearing his Achilles tendon in a Premier League clash with Burnley .
He had asked for confirmation that his chances for the first team would still be there when he finally returned to the fold, that was imminent during his chat with the former Derby manager
As a result, Hudson-Odoi will now consider that Chelsea is trying to get him signed, raising his wage to around £ 100,000 a week.
The news comes as a relief for the club, who seemed almost certain that he would lose the teenage sensation in January.
The player was subje ct of a £ 35 million bid from the Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, and even filed a transfer request in an attempt to continue the movement.
However, the club has not received any offers and despite renewed interest this summer from the German side, it seems almost a foregone conclusion that Hudson-Odoi now stays in place.
The attacker, who made his debut in England last season, hopes to train with the Blues again in August after receiving the green light from his surgeon.
Renowned Barcelona surgeon Ramon Cugat, who performed his surgery, confirmed that his patient was ahead of his schedule earlier this week in a big boost to the London outfit.
