Watford will be without Etienne Capoue and Sebastian Prodl for the trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this weekend, as they join Troy Deeney and Isaac Success in the treatment room.

Capoue has an issue with his back, while Prodl limped off against Sheffield United during his first game in the starting lineup since April 2018.

Head coach Quique Sanchez Flores said he had “no idea” how long Capoue would be missing for and that they were now forced to look for other solutions to fill the gaps left by those players.

“We have Etienne Capoue, Troy Deeney, Prodl and Success, all of them they are out,” said the head coach.

“We have no idea [how long Capoue will be out for], but it’s not too much I think.

“We’ll try to get a good solution for the problems, this is our only choice. Once we know that they can’t play, we need to take other solutions, I have other players who can play.”

Some of those solutions could be found among the younger members of the squad with the likes of Domingos Quina and Tom Dele-Bashiru both looking to prove themselves in the first-team.

Sanchez Flores said those players were ready to play, should they be called upon.

“They are ready to play. If I decided they are going to play, they are ready,” he said.

“The only thing of course, I think they don’t have minutes during the season so it’s difficult.

“We have confidence in all of the players.”
