Javi Gracia gives updates on Sarr & Welbeck before West Ham

Watford vs West Ham

Watford have not had the best of starts to the 2019/20 campaign.

Javi Gracia’s side are currently bottom of the Premier League table after two games played, sporting a minus 4 goal difference.

They are one of just four sides to have not picked up a single point in their opening two games, after losing vs Brighton and Everton.

This weekend sees the Hornets face 16th placed West Ham, who, like Watford, are going in search of their first league win this season.

Sarr & Welbeck

On Friday, Watford confirmed that Troy Denney will miss several weeks of action after undergoing knee surgery.

With one of their top forwards out of action, Watford fans may have been hoping that their new signings could help them out up top.

Danny Welbeck came off the bench for Watford vs Everton this past weekend, while Ismaila Sarr has yet to feature for them.

As such, ahead of the West Ham clash, Javi Gracia spoke about both Welbeck and Sarr:

“They are training well [Sarr and Welbeck].

 “Both are training with the team. Both are not in the best condition but most important in this moment is that they can help us. I’m sure they cannot play all the minutes, but they can help us in the next performance.

“He [Welbeck] needs more time to train and recover his best condition. We’ll see. [Starting him] doesn’t depend on one reason – there are many circumstances as to whether he starts the next one or the next one.

“Sarr is the player that needs more training but from the first session you can see his quality.” As quoted by Watford’s official website.
