Watford head coach Javi Gracia says Gerard Deulofeu needs time to rediscover his best form after looking rusty against Wolves. Gracia named Deulofeu in his starting line-up at Molineux last Saturday as the Spaniard continued his comeback from injury by playing 69 minutes in the Hornets’ 2-0 win.
Deulofeu showed glimpses of his old spark in the game but head coach Gracia is prepared to be patient with the former Barcelona forward to recover his best form.
“I know that Gerard is not in his best condition,” the Spaniard added. “He needs time to show what he’s able to do.
“I think Gerard and all of the players who played in the last game, all of them, kept a very good level and Gerard in the minutes he stayed on the pitch showed that he can help the team and I’m sure in the rest of the season he will improve his level.”
