Danny Welbeck could be set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after he was forced off after just 100 seconds in Watford's 1-1 draw against Tottenham.
Welbeck was signed this summer by Watford, but his injury-plagued career looks set to continue at his new club as there are fears it could be months before he steps back onto the pitch.
It has been a tough going for the former Manchester United man, who has only ever been able to play 30 league games in a season once. And his injury record has now worsened according to Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores.
"It's bad news about Danny Welbeck," the Spaniard stated. "We need to check a little bit more what happens in the next weeks.
"We have no idea [how long he will be out] but it's probably months."
Welbeck has only appeared four times for the Hornets this season but has started the last two Premier League games against Tottenham and Sheffield United.
"About Troy Deeney, we're very happy," Sanchez Flores optimistically stated.
They face Bournemouth on Saturday looking for their first win of the season coming off the agonising late draw with Tottenham.
