Watford have suffered another injury blow after Gerard Deulofeu revealed he will be “out from the pitch for some time”.

The Barcelona wide man sustained an ankle injury an hour into Saturday’s 1-0 win over his former loan club Everton. Deulofeu tried to continue but had to admit defeat after attempting to run and was replaced by Andre Carrillo.

The 23-year-old wrote on social media this evening: “Unfortunately I will be out from the pitch for some time but I will work very hard everyday in order to be back and ready to play. Thank you for all the support.”
