Everton full-back Bryan Oviedo is set to put eight months of injury frustration behind him on Tuesday with a return to first-team action against Swansea in the League Cup.

The Costa Rica international featured for the Toffees Under-21 side recently as he stepped up his rehabilitation from the broken leg he suffered in January which ruled him out of the summer's World Cup.

Watford boss Oscar Garcia has been released from hospital and could be back at the club later this week.

The 41-year-old Spaniard left hospital on Sunday, a week after he was admitted suffering from chest pains.

Garcia, who only took over at Vicarage Road three weeks ago, has since missed the Hornets' 1-0 win at Blackpool and Saturday's 1-1 draw against Bournemouth, which should have been his first home match in charge.

Watford would not put a time frame on his return on Saturday, but now say they hope he will be back on the training ground before next weekend's trip to Blackburn.
