Watford captain Troy Deeney risks ban after Chelsea wind-up

Watford captain Troy Deeney risks a suspension after his goal celebration in victory over Chelsea.

The Hornets skipper scored just his fourth goal of the season from the penalty spot to give Watford a first-half lead in their victory over the Premier League champions.

Rather than show his joy at netting an important goal, Deeney ran off with his arms outstretched and his middle finger up on both hands.

Some photos appear to show Deeney directing it towards the visiting supporters but it could be towards fans who have been critical of him for a string of poor performances and poor discipline this season, says the Hertfordshire Mercury.

The FA are expected to investigate the incident, which could lead to a new ban.
