Watford boss Javi Gracia says Troy Deeney will provide “something special” as he prepares to return from suspension against Chelsea.
The Watford forward has not played for the club since April 15, when he was sent off after elbowing Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira in the 1-0 defeat at Vicarage Road.
Deeney was forced to miss games against Huddersfield, Southampton and Wolves but he is now back and raring to go against the Blues.
Andre Gray and Gerard Deulofeu have led the line in his absence, but Gracia admits Deeney will offer something special on Sunday.

He told the club’s official website: “Troy is an important player on the pitch and out of the pitch because he has experience.
He has personality, character, ambition and desire. “Always he is trying to help the rest of his teammates – he is thinking of all of them.
He is something special for us. We have other important players, with different characters and with different personalities, but if you ask me I have to tell you he is something very important for us. “Troy is the same inside as well. He doesn’t change. He is like you can see and he always has the same behaviour.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
