The Eagles are set to travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford in an FA Cup quarter-final clash this weekend.

And, ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon, Eagles’ boss Roy Hodgson has this afternoon provided updates on the fitness of a quartet of the club’s stars.

Speaking in a press conference a short time ago, Hodgson confirmed:
