Team News: Leicester City v Watford

By: Watford FC Staff

Watford duo Ismaïla Sarr and Nicolas Nkoulou will both miss Sunday’s trip to Leicester City with injuries picked up during the 4-1 win over Manchester United.

The extent of the injuries to Sarr (knee) and Nkoulou (hamstring) is still being evaluated, however neither will play any part at the King Power Stadium.

Christian Kabasele re-joined training towards the end of this week and continues to build up his fitness following a lengthy time out due to a hamstring injury suffered in early October.

Ken Sema, who has been running outside this week as he steps up his recovery from a knee problem, will hope to re-join the squad next week.

Francisco Sierralta has been working hard in the gym during the first stage of his rehabilitation following a minor hamstring injury picked up on international duty.

Kwadwo Baah also remains in the early stages of recovery after successful surgery on his fractured ankle, while Peter Etebo has been stepping up his work in the gym and progressing well following quad surgery.

Finally, Juraj Kucka is back in contention this weekend having missed the Manchester United victory thanks to a one-match suspension.
