Due to a serious injury, Spanish winger Gerard Deulofeu isn't going to be back on the pitch before late summer 2020. Here's Watford official note on the matter:

Hornets’ forward Gerard Deulofeu is set for surgery soon after scans confirmed a ruptured ACL and torn meniscus suffered during the first-half of Watford’s 3-0 win over Premier League champions-elect Liverpool.

“Unfortunately for him and us, the scan results really show he is probably going to be out for the rest of the season,” Head Coach Nigel Pearson confirmed.

“For sure Geri is going to be a miss for us; but equally it’s important we look forward with a positive mentality. Maxi Pereyra went in for Geri and I thought he did very well when he went on.

“It almost goes without saying that we’ll give Geri all the support he needs for a full recovery.”

Troy Deeney, who suffered a bad injury himself earlier this season, said he will offer support to his teammate and that Saturday's victory was dedicated to him.

“We wish him all the best, we wish his family well. Unfortunately this is the game that we play,” said the club captain.

“It's going to be a real tough one and we wish him well. I said to him at half-time ‘we're going to win this for you’, and thankfully we did, thankfully I'm a man of my word.”
