Troy Deeney: “I’ll be ready for Arsenal”
Troy Deeney is set to miss Watford’s League Cup tie against Spurs but is keen to be fit for Arsenal on Saturday.
The striker has been taking injections to ease the pain of a foot injury which he played through against Fulham.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Deeney admitted:
“I have to have another injection, this time in the ankle, for the weekend so I’ll be ready for Arsenal.
“There’s a bit of ligament damage in there, nothing a few injections can’t help.
“It’s going to take more than that to stop me playing against Arsenal.
“One toe has healed but two are broken. I’ve had injections.
“One of the younger players did it on the Friday before the game.
“He was trying to impress and get himself in the team. It wasn’t much, but he stood on my toes.”
