Watford without centre-back for City clash


Kiko Femenia is fit for Watford's home game against Manchester City on Saturday but Younes Kaboul has been ruled out.

Both defenders went off injured during the Hornets’ 2-0 win at Southampton last weekend, right-back Femenia with a head knock and centre-back Kaboul carrying a hamstring problem.

Adrian Mariappa could come in alongside Christian Kabasele at the heart of the back four after he replaced Kaboul on 61 minutes at St Mary’s last Saturday.

Sebastian Prodl, Craig Cathcart and Mauro Zarate are still injured and Miguel Britos is suspended for Marco Silva’s men.

Provisional squad: Gomes, Karnezis, Janmaat, Kabasele, Wague, Mariappa, Femenia, Holebas, Zeegelaar, Capoue, Hughes, Chalobah, Doucoure, Cleverley, Watson, Carrillo, Pereyra, Deeney, Success, Richarlison, Okaka, Gray.
