Watford star man could miss Irons clash

Troy Deeney could be banned for Watford’s clash with West Ham this weekend, if he is found guilty of using an obscene gesture during the club’s win over Chelsea.

Deeney scored a penalty in the 4-1 thumping of the champions, and appeared to celebrate by sticking two middle fingers up at the crowd. 

The controversial striker has been suspended twice this season, and if he is found guilty he will likely miss four games through suspension – the first of which at the London Stadium.

Deeney was banned for three games for grabbing Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen’s face in October, and again  around the Christmas period after being sent off against Huddersfield Town.

Watford’s captain has only scored three goals this season, with his strike against Chelsea his first since a 4-2 defeat to Manchester United in November. His only other Premier League goal this season came in a 2-1 win over Arsenal.

Watford are currently 11th in the Premier League, just three points ahead of the Hammers.

  1. Well that will help but Deulofuo looked great & Doucoure as always so even without him they will be fine. Have a very big big squad had already played 27 players before transfer window now 28 29 when Ndong plays.
    Could say those 2 loan deals would of been very good for us both w buy option Ndong will be cheap & Deulofou not much considering his talent & pace.
    Ndong would ads Much needed pace & passing in mid. We needed a CDM most of all.
    Still amazed we bought a CF which no offense to Hugill but could of used a £10m CDM more.
    Ndong was bought for £13m & willing to let him go for £7m 23yo not bad Business by Watford but that alwaya do good business bc they have DOF & have big network with owning other clubs

  2. This story not happening- FA let him off with a warning ! So we won’t be “mugging”him or his team off at the London Stadium Saturday ?? Love to beat em but there team of about 20 loaned player’s looking for a permanent team somewhere are in the shop window? Looked awesome against Chelzki the other night
