Samuel Kalu is a major doubt for Watford’s trip to Manchester United on Saturday (today), Completesports reports.
Kalu, who linked up with the Hornets from Ligue 1 outfit Girondis Bordeaux last month is yet to make his debut for the club.
The Nigeria could however have to wait for another week before making his first appearance for the London club.
“Yeah, nothing particularly new. Luckily, you know, most of the players have come through. Of course, there’s always one or two that you’re assessing, because they were two tough games at [Aston] Villa and then against [Crystal] Palace,” Watford manager Roy Hodgson said before the game.
” So there’s still a few that are suffering from fatigue. So I must say I should probably leave the team selection until the last minute just to see how well people recover.
“But really, in terms of injury, we’ve still got [Nicolas] Nkoulou basically who is injured. [Samuel] Kalu, who is suffering from a slight ankle injury. I don’t think there is too many more apart from that.”
