After being dropped to the bench for last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Bournemouth, Richarlison may again be named among the substitutes for the visit of Burnley to Vicarage Road. Will Hughes impressed on his return to the side in the No 10 role in the usual 4-2-3-1 formation, while wide players Kiko Femenia and Roberto Pereyra both got on the scoresheet. Unless any of Watford’s injured contingent are fit to return against the Clarets, Javi Gracia looks to have limited options available to him. Providing he is available following illness, Miguel Britos could be an option in central defence, along with Craig Cathcart and perhaps Christian Kabasele, who returned to full training this week and is set to be assessed. Younes Kaboul, Tom Cleverley, Nathaniel Chalobah and Gerard Deulofeu all remain sidelined.
