Watford defender Younes Kaboul is an injury doubt for Sunday's televised home clash against Stoke City. 

The summer signing picked up a knock this week and faces a battle to be fit for this weekend's game at Vicarage Road.

Head coach Walter Mazzarri said: "At the moment, there is some doubt about Kaboul.

"He stopped training for a couple of sessions due to a knock, but he should be available for Sunday. Then we have the usual Craig Cathcart, Isaac Success, that are unavailable."

The Hornets will be able to call on defender Jose Holebas this weekend after he served a one-match ban in Saturday's win over Leicester City.

Kenedy remains sidelined with an injury which has kept him out for the last few weeks and Juan Camilo Zuniga is a doubt after missing training during this week.

Mazzarri said: "Zuniga can play in different roles and I want to thank him especially because every time he has played he has given everything he has got and done very well to help the team.

"But we have Holebas who has been doing very well, and the only issue is that Zuniga hasn’t been training with the team for around three days. He could be a doubt."
