Cleverley given hope of recall
Javi Gracia says Tom Cleverley is improving "day by day" but he cannot say if he will get a chance to return against Manchester City.
The England international midfielder has not featured at all this season because of an Achilles problem that required an operation.
But the ex-Manchester United player is back in the Hornets squad for the visit of champions City to Vicarage Road this week.
Gracia will not say if he expects to see him close to returning on the pitch in the next few games as he has a number of midfielders currently competing for a slot in his side.
The Spaniard said: "He is training with the squad but I can't tell you if he's going to play in three or four games. He's training hard and improving and we will see when he has his chance to play. I see him every day and he’s improving day by day a lot."
