Picking the Best Potential Watford Lineup to Face Woking in the FA Cup on Sunday

Watford will make the short trip south to Woking in the FA Cup on Sunday, with the Premier League club looking to progress to the fourth round at the expense of their Vanarama National League South counterparts.


The cup tie at the Kingfield Stadium will present Hornets manager Javi Gracia with an opportunity to rest several first team players, with their Premier League clash against Crystal Palace next weekend in mind. It also presents the Spanish manager with a chance to bring some fringe players and players recovering from injuries into his team.


Watford's hosts will also have their eyes on their league campaign, as they sit second in the Vanarama National League South. This tie does present them with the chance to make FA Cup headlines and claim the scalp of knocking out a Premier League side.


Here is a look at how Watford's team could look for their trip to Woking on Sunday.


1. Goalkeeper and Defenders

Heurelho Gomes (GK) - The Brazilian goalkeeper played both of the club's Carabao Cup fixtures, which seems to suggest that he will play the role of cup goalkeeper in Javi Gracia's side.


Marc Navarro (RB) - The summer arrival from Espanyol has not featured for the club since their Premier League game away at Arsenal in September.


Adrian Mariappa (CB) - Replaced the injured Christian Kabasele against Chelsea on Boxing Day and has played every game since.


Miguel Britos (CB) - The Uruguayan centre back has been on the Hornet's bench for their last two Premier League games and could get his first start of the season.


Adam Masina (LB) - The 25-year-old summer recruit from Bologna has mainly been confined to the bench this season, starting on the bench for 16 of their 21 Premier League games. He played a full 90 minutes in both of Watford's Carabao Cup games.

2. Midfielders

Tom Cleverley (CM) - After returning from achilles surgery in December, Cleverley has featured from the bench, however Javi Gracia may want to expose him to more minutes in preparation for the second half of their campaign.


Ben Wilmot (CM) - Wilmot has only played two minutes of Premier League football since joining the Hornets from Stevenage in the summer. He played 90 minutes of both of their Carabao Cup games though.


Nathaniel Chalobah (CM) - The English midfielder has not been in the Watford squad for their last four games. 


Will Hughes (RM) - Came off the bench against Bournemouth, but this cup tie could be a great opportunity for the midfielder to gain more minutes.


Ken Sema (LM) - Started Watford's last match away at Bournemouth. Also played part in all of Watford's cup games this season.

3. Forwards

Isaac Success (ST) - The Nigerian forward made a brief cameo appearance in their game against Bournemouth. Played both Carabao Cup matches this term, and Gracia may look to rest Troy Deeney, which will give Success a chance to impress.
