Watford midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah will miss out several weeks or even months of play as he needs to undergo a knee surgery because of this, he will also miss a first return game against Chelsea next month and a call-up to the next England squad.
The 22-year-old midfielder will need to go under the knife after suffering an injury while training last week.

While reports are saying that the midfielder will return after a couple of weeks, it is still unclear when he would exactly return. Director Gavin Benjafield said that he expects Chalobah to return and begin training before the end of the year.
“Whilst we can’t put an exact timeline on his recovery, we are expecting to see him re-integrating into the squad well before the New Year,” Benjafield said.
