Watford striker Danny Welbeck's injury-hit career has suffered another setback, after he limped off with an ankle injury against Tottenham.
The former Arsenal forward was blighted by injuries during his time with the Gunners and picked up another for his new side at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The 28-year-old, who has 42 caps for England, limped off against Spurs after just three minutes and was replaced by Gerard Deulofeu.
It was Welbeck's fifth Premier League appearance for the Hornets after he joined the club for free in the summer.
Arsenal were happy to let his contract run down at the end of last season and, due to an ankle problem, he played just eight games for Unai Emery.
Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores confirmed after the game that Welbeck was struggling with an ankle injury.
"I think I was talking about him in the last press conference about how he is fighting with this injury," he said. "He is happy to be with us, with the team and during the week he was good, he did not complain about anything and our feeling with him was really good.
"The ankle is really uncomfortable, I told you during the week. It is the ankle."
