Team News: Tottenham v Watford

By: Watford FC Staff

Midfielder Juraj Kucka remains a doubt for Sunday's trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Slovakian missed last weekend's defeat at Brighton with a thigh injury. He has returned to light training this week and will be assessed before the team travels to north London.

After a midweek clean sheet in the Carabao Cup, goalkeeper Ben Foster will also miss Sunday with a small hamstring problem that he picked up during Tuesday night's victory over Crystal Palace.

Striker João Pedro is now running outside and making good progress from the knee injury he sustained in July.

Nathaniel Chalobah has recovered from a recent illness and is also working outside with the medical team as he builds his fitness towards a return to full training.

Fellow midfielder Dan Gosling remains unavailable due to illness.

Finally, as Head Coach Xisco Muñoz explained earlier this week, new signing Ozan Tufan won’t be available until after the forthcoming international break.
