The 26-year-old scored his team's second in Saturday's 6-1 demolition of Leeds before being stretchered off the pitch.

It was the Switzerland international's fifth goal in 16 games since joining on loan from Udinese in July this year.

Head of medical Marco Cesarini told the club's website: "We're confident the injury won't mean a lengthy absence."

Abdi, who has also played for FC Zurich and Le Mans, will have a scan this week to investigate the extent of the damage to his shoulder.

In other Hornets news, defender Nyron Nosworthy is being lined up to visit a specialist about his ongoing rehabilitation on a hamstring injury.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
