​Watford centre-back Younes Kaboul will be out for revenge when his side take on Stoke City on Tuesday.


The Hornets suffered defeat when the two sides met in November, with Heurelho Gomes' own goal condemning Watford to defeat before Miguel Britos was sent off late on.


Speaking to Premier League Productions as quoted by ​Watford's official club website, Kaboul said he is hoping his side can exact revenge when they face Stoke on Tuesday.

​​"Yes, in some ways," Kaboul said when asked if revenge will be playing on his side's mind.


"I’m expecting a similar game to the one we played earlier in the season.


"Stoke are always a very tough team to play against, and we’re going to have to be very focused if we want to take the three points."

Watford v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

Watford are currently experiencing a poor run of form, having lost three of their last four Premier League games. They looked particularly suspect defensively during their 4-1 defeat against Tottenham on New Year's Day, during which both Harry Kane and Dele Alli grabbed braces before Kaboul netted a consolation.


Their poor run of form has not been helped by their rotten luck with injuries, with Watford currently without nine first team players. Juan Zuniga was injured during the warm-up against Spurs, while they will also be without midfielder Valon Behrami and full-back Daryl Janmaat for the trip to Stoke.


Kaboul has made 12 Premier League appearances for Watford so far this season, and has kept three clean sheets, helping Walter Mazzarri's into 12th position in the league.
