Dan Gosling is excited by Hernandez's potential

Watford midfielder Dan Gosling is expecting forward Cucho Hernandez to have a big impact for the Hornets as they prepare for their return to the Premier League.

Watford are 12/5 to get their campaign off to a winning start when they face Aston Villa on 14th August. Dean Smith's team are 6/5 to claim a full return from their trip to Hertfordshire, while the draw is available at 23/10.

Returning loanee

Hernandez signed for Watford in 2017 but the 22-year-old has yet to make his debut, spending the last three seasons in Spain in loan spells at Huesca, Mallorca and Getafe.

He's got a nasty streak in him, which is good and what you need.

However, he looks set to be given his opportunity for Xisco Munoz's team after impressing in a pre-season friendly against West Brom at the weekend.

Gosling, who joined Watford last year and previously played for Everton, Newcastle and Bournemouth in the top flight, anticipates he can prove a big asset as the team look to establish themselves at a higher level.

Sharp pre-season

The Colombian scored two goals against Costa Rica on his only appearance for his country in October 2018, and Gosling has been impressed with what he has seen on the training ground.

He said: "He's come in sharp, aggressive, and he's got a lot of goals in training from cutting in, so we're expecting big things from him and all our attackers. They're our match winners.

"We rely on those guys up front a lot and he looks very exciting. He's very dynamic. He's quick, sharp, and we're expecting big things from him and our attackers.

"He's very aggressive. He's put his head in where it hurts and sometimes wingers just don't want to do that, but he's got a nasty streak in him, which is good and what you need. He'll be fine."
