Stefano Okaka, Daryl Janmaat and Jerome Sinclair are all ruled out for the Hornets. Miguel Britos, Craig Cathcart and Isaac Success will be assessed closer to kick off. Walter Mazzarri could stick with a 4-3-3 formation and name the same starting XI that drew 2-2 with Bournemouth last time out.

Fabio is a doubt for the hosts, with the full-back rated 50/50 for the welcome of Watford. Grantd Leadbitter and James Husband are both ruled out for Middlesbrough in Sunday’s early kick off. Gaston Ramirez and Alvaro Negredo will look to come into the starting XI in place of Viktor Fischer and Jordan Rhodes.

After a bright start to the season, Middlesbrough have now failed to win their last five league games, taking two points of a possible 15. Their home form has been poor to say the least, with one draw and two defeats at the Riverside Stadium this term.

Watford’s form has improved following a disappointing start, with the Hornets losing only one of their last four Premier League outings. While they lost on their most recent away fixture, Watford have done well on the road this term, securing four points from a possible nine on their travels.

This fixture could prove to be an entertaining affair at the Riverside Stadium, with a score draw on the cards.
