Watford will be without Peter Ogenekaro Etebo for their final Premier League game of the season against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
This was confirmed on the club’s official website.
The 26-year-old Super Eagles midfielder suffered an injury while in training ahead of the fixture.
Etebo has joined a growing injury list of African players, who will miss the Hornets’ final fixture of the season as they drop to the EFL Championship for next season. Others are Nigeria’s Emmanuel Dennis and Senegal’s Ismaila Sarr, who will remain sidelined after missing the last two matches against Everton and Leicester City.
“Peter Etebo is certainly out after picking up an injury in training, while Emmanuel Dennis [knee], Shaq Forde [ankle], Juraj Kucka [knee], Imran Louza [knee], and Ismaila Sarr [knee] all remain unavailable,” the club revealed in a statement on their official website.
Etebo last featured for Watford on May 15 against Leicester City; a meeting that he played only nine minutes in during a 5-1 defeat. In total, he has managed nine appearances overall and played 397 minutes.
