Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores may take the opportunity to rest a number of first-team regulars for their FA Cup third round tie with Newcastle.

The Hornets could hand a debut to summer signing Obbi Oulare if Flores opts to rest either captain Troy Deeney or top goalscorer Odion Ighalo.

Jose Holebas may also be drafted in but Nathan Ake remains suspended while Tommie Hoban (groin) and Joel Ekstrand (knee) are out.

Provisional squad: Gomes, Arlauskis, Nyom, Cathcart, Britos, Prodl, Anya, Capoue, Jurado, Watson, Behrami, Deeney, Ighalo, Guedioura, Abdi, Paredes, Diamanti, Oulare, Holebas.
