Watford defender Craig Cathcart is a doubt for Monday night's visit of Liverpool because of a knee problem.

Younes Kaboul (hamstring), Roberto Pereyra (knee) and forward Mauro Zarate (anterior cruciate ligament) all remain sidelined.

Provisional Squad: Gomes, Britos, Janmaat, Prodl, Holebas, Amrabat, Cleverley, Capoue, Niang, Doucoure, Deeney, Pantilimon, Okaka, Zuniga, Success, Mariappa, Behrami, Kabasele, Cathcart.
