Team News | Swansea

Marco Silva kept it brief when reporting the latest Watford team news from the Hornets' training ground this afternoon. 

Roberto Pereyra was the only new item of conversation, in an otherwise unchanged injury and suspension list. 

The luckless midfield man was forced off against Leicester with a minor complaint, but could be in line for a rapid return against Swansea on Saturday. 

“After the last match the situation with Pereyra is we will see,” Silva said. 

“Yesterday he started again to work with the team. The injury is nothing special. We'll take care with him and see how he is but he looks in a good condition to play tomorrow.”

Will Hughes and Kiko Femenía remain unavailable, while captain Troy Deeney is halfway through his four-match suspension.

Long-term absentees Nathaniel Chalobah, Miguel Britos, Younès Kaboul and Craig Cathcart continue their rehabilitation programmes.

Vicarage Road breathed a collective sigh of relief when referee Chris Kavanagh called time on a welcome and much-needed Boxing Day win over Leicester City.

Four defeats on the spin - and six games without even tasting victory - meant there were nerves aplenty in the stands, but those of a Watford persuasion within the 20,300+ crowd needn't have worried.

The Golden Boys saw out a battling, hard-fought 2-1 win - thanks to a Molla Wagué debut goal, Abdoulaye Doucouré's deflected effort and some trademark heroic 'keeping from Heurelho Gomes - delivering the perfect Christmas gift for the jubilant Hornets' supporters.
