Watford manager Javi Gracia makes three changes to his starting XI for Saturday's Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace at Vicarage Road.

Watford manager Javi Gracia has made three changes to his starting XI for Saturday's Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace at Vicarage Road.

Christian Kabasele, Jose Holebas and Stefano Okaka are drafted in for Sebastian Prodl, Daryl Janmaat and Kiko Femenia.

The Hornets, who lost 1-0 at Huddersfield Town last time out, have also switched to a 4-4-2 formation, with Troy Deeney and Okaka starting up front.

Palace, meanwhile, have named the same XI that claimed a 3-2 win over Brighton & Hove Albion seven days ago.

As a result, Christian Benteke must settle for a place on the bench once more, with Andros Townsend and Wilfried Zaha leading the line.

Watford: Karnezis; Mariappa, Cathcart, Kabasele, Holebas; Hughes, Capoue, Doucoure, Pereyra; Deeney, Okaka
Subs: Gomes, Britos, Femenia, Janmaat, Richarlison, Sinclair, Gray

Crystal Palace: Hennessey; Ward, Tomkins, Sakho, Van Aanholt; McArthur, Milivojevic, Cabaye, Loftus-Cheek; Townsend, Zaha
Subs: Speroni, Sorloth, Chung-yong, Benteke, Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Riedewald
