Watford Vs Chelsea: Team News, Predictions And Betting Odds

Chelsea will attempt to put their loss to Leicester behind them when they face Watford at Vicarage Road on Wednesday.

Team News

Maurizio Sarri's side suffered their first home defeat of the season last week when they were beaten 1-0 by the Foxes and the Italian is eager to return to winning ways.

Watford, meanwhile, are flying high this season and will pose a serious threat to the Blues, particularly on their own patch.

Watford are expected to be without Andre Gray, while Will Hughes and Sebastian Prodl are also unlikely to feature. The Hornets have no suspensions to worry about, but they may opt to rotate the squad.

Line Ups



Potential Watford starting XI
: Foster; Holebas, Cathcart, Kabasele, Femenia; Doucoure, Capoue, Sema, Pereyra, Deulofeu; Deeney
.
Position             Chelsea squad   
Goalkeepers     Kepa, Caballero, Green, Bulka

Forwards           Hazard, Pedro, Giroud, Morata, Willian, Hudson-Odoi   

Andreas Christensen is a major concern for Sarri due to a hamstring injury, but Alvaro Morata is available again. The Italian coach has a preferred XI, but may switch things up in midfield and attack to preserve the legs of his players through the festive period.
