Isaac Success is on his way to Spain to see Catalan specialist Dr Ramon Cugat to get treatment on his dead leg and hamstring problems, which has meant he has missed the last four games for Watford.

Pozzo has faith

Watford owner Gino Pozzo, who used to be based in Barcelona, has huge trust in the Catalan doctor as this is Success’ second time going to see him, in the hope he can return to full training.

Joel Ekstrand’s career was saved by Cugat and has also seen other Watford's players such as Stefano Okaka and Craig Cathcart earlier this season.

Other big names also have a lot of faith in Dr Ramon Cugat such as Xavi Hernandez, Cesc Fabregas, Andres Iniesta, Carles Puyol, Kevin de Bruyne and also Vincent Kompany who have all been treated by him.

Success fitting in the team

Success could be in contention for being in the team in Sunday's clash with Mark Hughes’ Stoke City however he won’t be in training till a few days before the game. 

A more likely come back for Success will in The Hornet's away trip to  West Brom as Mazzarri has plenty of options for the bench such as Odion Ighalo, Stefano Okaka and Jerome Sinclair. However, it will be hard to see where Success would fit into Mazzarri’s new formation with one up top which he played in Watford’s 2-1 victory over Leicester on Saturday.

The ex- Granada striker has only scored one goal for Watford this season, which came in a 2-2 draw at home to Bournemouth.
