Watford will be without a number of key players for their end-of-season match with Swansea this weekend.

Ismaila Sarr is very unlikely to participate with his injury being closely monitored, while Nathaniel Chalobah, Tom Cleverley, Kiko Femenia, Jeremy Ngakia, Joseph Hungbo and Tom Dele-Bashiru are all ruled out with various problems.

A couple of players are hoping to be available after missing last week’s defeat at Brentford, including Joao Pedro who the club confirm has been back in full training this week after shaking off an ankle injury.

Carlos Sanchez is another who could feature.

Club captain Troy Deeney may be in a position to play and said ahead of the match that he was hoping to be involved in some capacity but admitted he was not fully match fit.

“I’m hoping to be involved on Saturday if I’m selected,” said the striker.

“I’m just working to get ready for the end of what was a very positive season for everyone involved and just looking forward to enjoying the last game of the season for what it is.

“We’ve had a tough year, haven’t we so we’re just glad everyone can enjoy the last game. We’ve got no pressure, it’s just a freedom game really.

“I’m training now and I’ve been in training for a couple of weeks, just doing the same old, building up to it.

“I’m a little bit annoyed that obviously the season’s ended but it is what it is.

“It gives me the motivation to work all throughout the summer.”
