Etienne Capoue doubled his Premier League goals tally with a wonder strike to open the scoring against Chelsea, but the sight of the French midfielder limping off will be the cause of great concern for Watford.
With only a single top flight goal to his name previously [scored for Tottenham in January, 2014] few would’ve expected Capoue to have started the new campaign in such style. His first at St Marys’ on the opening weekend, helped the Golden Boys to a share of the spoils. His second, on Saturday, came when he lashed home a deep Adlene Guedioura cross, which left Chelsea searching for an equaliser until the 80th minute. However, the game ended on a sour note for Capoue, who was helped from the field following a last-ditch tackle to deny Diego Costa. As the Spanish striker set himself, Capoue slid in to knock the ball away with Costa landing a heavy blow to the back of his leg. Ben Watson is a ready replacement if Capoue fails to recover in time for the visit of Arsenal. Aug 22 - 5:41 AM
