Watford captain Troy Deeney has been ruled out for "several weeks" after undergoing knee surgery, the club have confirmed.

The Hornets have now lost their last six games stretching back to last April, a run that included a regrettable 6-0 annihilation at the hands of Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

Gillet will be the Video Assistant Referee when Watford host West Ham on Sunday morning (AEST).

West Ham took an early lead from the penalty spot as Mark Noble scored after Manuel Lanzini was pulled down in the box by Abdoulaye Doucoure.

Both sides will head into the game looking for their first win of the season. It doesn't matter who we play.

Watford are yet to pick up a point in the Premier League yet this season after last weekend's defeat at Everton followed an opening day thrashing at the hands of Brighton.

As per reports, both these players will go through a late fitness test on Saturday in order to determine their availability but the medical staff at Vicarage Road are not keeping their hopes up too high. It's not easy when you come from another league and you start working here and playing here.

'I'm preparing for the next game.

"Many top midfielders have been bought by the club during those years, yet my mentality has never changed".

"I'm 32 now but I still get nervous before every training session and that's because I want to be the best player out there". Up ahead, Roberto Pereyra will continue in the attacking midfield role behind the strikers, and we could maybe see Gerard Deulofeu move back to play beside him.
