RALPH Hasenhuttl is waiting to hear back on both Sofiane Boufal's and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's fitness ahead of Sunday's game against Watford.

Boufal took to Twitter on Thursday night to explain he suffered a minor thigh injury in training.

And Hojbjerg is said to be struggling with his ankle following the defeat to Arsenal.

"I haven't seen him [Boufal] today so don't have the latest information about him.

"Pierre Hojbjerg was a little injured yesterday when he stepped off with an ankle injury, we don't know if it's enough.

"We will definitely have a few fresh players for the weekend because it was quite an intense game in a high temperature and for the weekend we need fresh players.

"We need players with good attitudes because we face an opponent that is fighting for its life and this is a tough game for us."
