Team News: Watford v Everton

By: Watford FC Staff

Several Watford players will be subject to fitness checks ahead of tomorrow’s home match against Everton (Wednesday May 11, 7.45pm KO).

João Pedro will be assessed today after missing Saturday’s Crystal Palace match with a minor groin problem. The forward trained yesterday and is hopeful of being involved against the Toffees, as is fellow Brazilian Samir, who was withdrawn at Selhurst Park with a minor knock.

Tom Cleverley is doubtful after being forced off at the weekend with a blow to the ribs, while Kiko Femenía and Joshua King are both suffering from illness and may miss out.

Ismaïla Sarr and Emmanuel Dennis are major doubts with knocks sustained against the Eagles, while young forward Shaq Forde is suffering with an ankle injury he picked up in training.

Definitely unavailable are Juraj Kucka (knee) and Cucho Hernández (hamstring), while Nicolas Nkoulou (minor groin problem) is also absent but should be okay for the Leicester match on Sunday (May 15, 2pm KO).

Imrân Louza (knee) had surgery yesterday and will be out for the rest of this season.

Hassane Kamara serves a one-match suspension following his sending off on Saturday, and Kwadwo Baah is away on international duty with Germany Under-19s.

Finally, Tom Dele-Bashiru, Dapo Mebude, Mattie Pollock and Domingos Quina have returned to the training ground following the expiration of their loans but are not eligible to play.
