Team news

Watford

Record signing Andre Gray is in line to make his Watford debut this weekend with Troy Deeney’s availability in question owing to recent surgery on his groin.

The club captain faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday’s visit of Liverpool but is a doubt given the procedure was only a month ago.

Craig Cathcart also misses out because of a knee injury, as does Christian Kabasele due to a hamstring problem. Mauro Zarate, also knee, remains a long-term absentee.

Liverpool

Philippe Coutinho will not play for Liverpool at Watford with the official reasoning given as a back problem.

The Barcelona transfer saga continues to rumble on after the Reds rejected the Brazilian’s transfer request earlier this week.

Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge will both also miss out on the tie through injury, but the Reds have a bolstered front line given the summer arrivals of Mo Salah and Dominic Solanke.
