Watford striker Danny Welbeck suffers more injury woe

Watford striker Danny Welbeck is facing more time on the sidelines following another injury setback.

Welbeck limped off inside the opening five minutes of Saturday's 1-1 draw at Tottenham.

After the game manager Quique Sanchez Flores claimed Welbeck had suffered an ankle problem but the forward has actually sustained a hamstring tear.

And there are concerns Welbeck, whose career has been beset by injuries, will miss months rather than weeks with his latest problem, says the Daily Mail.

Watford medics have sought the opinion of a number of specialists before determining his rehabilitation programme.
