Watford will be witout Francisco Sierralta for three weeks, while Christian Kabasele is expected to be out for longer.

Joshua King is expected to be back within two weeks.

All three were injured during the defeat at Leeds United, leading to the Hornets signing free agent Nicolas Nkoulou.

Both Sierralta and King were withdrawn from their international squads during the current international break.

While it seemed like bad news at first, particularly for King and Sierralta, their injuries don't appear to be as bad as first thought.

However, Kabasele's problem looks to be more serious and an estimated return date is not yet known for the Belgian.
