​Watford will be looking to start a late push for a spot in the top ten when they play host to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Hornets will be without Younès Kaboul and Tommie Hoban, Nathaniel Chalobah and Gerard Deulofeu for the clash against the Eagles.

Below is a look at the strongest possible XI that Watford manager Javi Gracia could field.

Goalkeeper

  • Karnezis

Orestis Karnezis looks set to retain his place in goal for Watford.

​Watford manager Javi Gracia should keep faith in his back four, who kept out Huddersfield Town until stoppage time last weekend.

With Younès Kaboul and Tommie Hoban injured, Sebastian Prödl and Craig Cathcart look set to get the nod in central defence. Daryl Janmaat and Adrian Mariappa should resume their full back roles.

Midfield

The in-form duo of Etienne Capoue and Abdoulaye Doucouré look set to keep their holding midfield roles, particularly as long-term absentee Nathaniel Chalobah remains injured.

Gerard Deulofeu is also ruled out, which means Kiko Femenia, Will Hughes and Roberto Pereyra look set to line up as an attacking trio behind Troy Deeney.

Forwards

  • Deeney

Troy Deeney hasn’t hit the form he’d have hoped for this season, with only five goals to show for 23 Premier League appearances.

The 29-year-old will hope to hit ​form against Crystal Palace at the weekend, as Watford look to make a late push for a spot in the top half of the Premier League table.
