Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu will be out for “some time” after injuring his ankle in a 1-0 win against Everton. Deulofeu is of course on-loan from Barcelona and was getting some good playing time for Watford.

“Unfortunately I will be out from the pitch for some time but I will work very hard everyday in order to be back and ready to play,” Deulofeu said on Twitter. “Thank you for all the support.”

Watford manger Javi Gracia discussed the injury and what it would mean for his side after the game.

“I don’t know what happened. He’s feeling pain in his right foot and we’ll have to see,”

“It would be a real blow if Deulofeu was to miss a number of games, especially as he looks to have settled in quickly at Vicarage Road.”

It remains unclear as to how long Deulofeu will miss, but it’ll most certainly hurt Watford in the meantime.
