Watford

Capoue return boosts Hornets

23rd November 2018, 07:58 by Alex Jack

Watford are set to welcome back Etienne Capoue into the starting line-up when they host Liverpool on Saturday.

France international Capoue returns from suspension to come into contention, while defender Sebastian Prodl has also been training again following his leg problem.

Tom Cleverley is stepping up his rehabilitation after a combination of hamstring and Achilles trouble, along with defender Daryl Janmaat, who has been out since September because of a knee injury.

Manager Javi Gracia, who is believed to be close to penning fresh terms at Vicarage Road after a strong start to life with the Hornets, has guided his side to seventh place in the Premier League table ahead of the arrival of title contenders Liverpool.
