Mazzarri happy with striker options

Walter Mazzarri is happy to have four strikers fit and ready to line up for Watford in Sunday's Premier League game at Middlesbrough.

The Hornets' boss is exepcted to go with skipper Troy Deeney, who has scored in three of his last four games to move to 99 goals for the club, at the Riverside Stadium.

Odion Ighalo has scored twice in eight appearances this season and started the 2-2 draw against Bournemouth before the international break, while Stefano Okaka has made just one appearance since his summer switch from Anderlecht.

Watford's £12.5million club-record signing Isaac Success could also start his first Premier League game at Boro, having scored his first goal for the Hornets against the Cherries.

The 20-year-old Nigerian withdrew from Nigeria duty after sustaining a knock when he had been in line to make his debut.

"Isaac Success recovered very well. He looks okay," Mazzarri said.

"The only thing I need to check now is if he's got 90 minutes in him and if he has recovered completely from injury in the last game."

On his forward options, the Italian added: "I have four forwards, many different possibilities, different options. I will make my decision the day before the game.

"Mainly what I ask from my forwards is that they don't need to score but to play very well."
