Watford will be without Gerard Deulofeu for the rest of the season, as the forward is set to get a knee surgery after his injury against Liverpool on Saturday.
Watford stunned Liverpool with a 3-0 win and it was a bittersweet victory as they have now lost one of their key men in their battle for survival.
Deulofeu had to be carried off the pitch on a stretcher and he has since had scans to reveal the extent of the damage.
Scans confirmed the forward has ruptured his ACL and torn the meniscus in his knee, meaning he will not play again this season.

The forward was his team's highest scorer last season and this is a huge blow to Watford, as he is someone they could have relied on for goals in the remainder of the season.
