EAGLES defender Marc Guehi is not facing a long stretch on the sidelines after he limped off during the club's win over Watford.

The England international took a blow to his ankle against the Hornets and was forced to be substituted and had to limp off the pitch.

Concern was raised over the defender and that he could have been ruled out for the remainder of the season. From a national standpoint, there were worries that he would be forced to miss England's Nation League matches against Hungary and Germany.

However, according to reports in the Daily Mail, Guehi's injury is not as bad as first thought and he could still have a part to play in the remainder of the season as Palace aim for a top-half finish.

It is also believed that England boss Gareth Southgate is set to recall the 21-year-old into his team if he is fit.

Guehi still remains a doubt for Sunday's Premier League clash against Aston Villa. But his potential return for games against Everton and Manchester United will be a big boost for manager Patrick Vieira.
