Watford midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah has recovered from a hamstring problem and could play against Huddersfield this weekend, while the Hornets also have no other fresh injury concerns.

Chalobah limped out of the FA Cup defeat at Manchester United on Saturday, but head coach Xisco Munoz said he has not sustained any serious problems, while also confirming that there were no new issues for his team.

“Right now it’s okay,” Munoz said about Chalobah. “We have good news from what the doctor said today and we will see what happens in the game. I don’t know exactly if he will play or not, but now he’s 100 per cent, without. being out of the team.

“Right now we are very happy because we don’t have new injuries. And it’s good for the coach.”

Elsewhere, things are starting to look brighter for striker Stipe Perica who could be back in time to play a part some time next week.

“We will see, the injury for him is a little bit different,” said Munoz. “Maybe [he will be okay]for this week, maybe for the next game. We will see.”

Perica is not the only player nearing a return either, with defender Christian Kabasele and Isaac Success both a couple of weeks away from fitness.

“Kabasele, we need a little more time,” said the head coach. “They are preparing for two or three weeks. And Isaac is also in need of time.

“They’re working very good, I’m very happy with the work they do and they need to time. A minimum of two or three weeks.”
