Joshua King could be available for Watford's game against Liverpool this weekend after he returned to training today.

The striker's knee was injured during the Hornets' 1-0 defeat to Leeds United and he was ruled out of international action as a result.

But the club have today confirmed there is a chance he could play on Saturday and he will be assessed further before kick off.

Meanwhile, new head coach Claudio Ranieri's defensive options look pretty slim, with potentially only Craig Cathcart and William Troost-Ekong available to play in the centre.

The Italian confirmed that Nicolas Nkoulou was about three weeks away from fitness, while Francisco Sierralta and Christian Kabasele both remain out with hamstring problems.

Elsewhere, Peter Etebo has had surgery on the tear in his quad muscle and has begun rehabilitation with the club's fitness staff.
