Watford are sweating on the fitness of Nathaniel Chalobah after he was sent for a second scan to determine the extent of a training ground knee injury.
The former England U21 international has enjoyed an excellent start to his career at Vicarage Road following his move from Chelsea. However, it now appears that Chalobah is set for a period on the sidelines after he posted a picture of himself on Instagram with his left knee in a brace. The specifics of the injury are not clear at this stage, but the 22-year-old is believed to have pulled up immediately in training after striking the ball. Typically, this kind of knee support is used to treat ligament and/or cartilage damage which would suggest significant time out, although Watford supporters will be hoping it’s being used more as a precaution. His replacement on Saturday - Etienne Capoue - was handed his first Premier League start of the season in the 2-1 win over Swansea, the Hornets third consecutive away victory. Sep 26 - 5:33 AM
