Watford vs Southampton - Deeney remains suspended as Watford host Southampton

Watford remain without suspended captain Troy Deeney for Tuesday’s Premier League visit of Southampton.

The striker was sent off in the recent defeat to Arsenal and serves the second of a three-match ban.

Tom Cleverley (calf), Domingos Quina (shoulder) and Jose Holebas (hamstring) are still missing although Roberto Pereyra and Adalberto Penaranda are in contention after overcoming hip and hamstring injuries respectively.

Southampton will continue to assess defenders Jannik Vestergaard and Yan Valery ahead of the trip.

Vestergaard (groin) and Valery (illness) both missed Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Newcastle, along with goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and defender Matt Targett, who are carrying unspecified fitness issues.

Midfielder Mario Lemina made his return from three months out with an abdominal problem when he came off the bench to score in the second half at St James’ Park, so could be involved again. Forward Michael Obafemi (hamstring) continues his rehabilitation.
