Hector Bellerin is an injury doubt for Watford’s Boxing Day clash against Millwall but Daniel Pudil should be available despite coming off against Ipswich Town with a hamstring injury.

Arsenal loanee Bellerin did not feature at Portman Road on Saturday due to a hip injury and it is uncertain as to whether he will be fit on Thursday.

Pudil was brought off as a precaution against the Tractor Boys but should be able to feature if selected by Hornets head coach Giuseppe Sannino.

Midfielder Almen Abdi is not yet ready to return from the foot injury that has kept him out of action since the end of August and Davide Faraoni is also set to miss out with an ankle problem.

Essaid Belkalem is a long-term absentee with an ankle injury and Tommie Hoban is also unavailable as he continues his recovery from his ankle problem.

Watford have a good record against Millwall and have won four of the last six matches between the two sides.

However, they could only draw 0-0 when they faced off at Vicarage Road last season and the Lions claimed a 1-0 victory last time they took on each other in April.

Yes, definitely for Anya is just about the only one with any pace in our team.

Shame about Bellerin, for he is quite pacy as well, and far better than Pudil as an attacking wing back for two crucial home games coming up.

Really need to win this one. That 0-1 defeat last year when we had played them off the park, following on from the defeat at Peterboro, effectively cost us promotion.

And FF. And CB. I don't know why all 3 of them don't always start. GS I think had no choice other than to run with what went before until he can make up his own mind. Hopefully he will soon realise that they are our best players - something Zola never did.
