Watford vs Chelsea – Team News


Chelsea face Watford at Vicarage Road in just under an hour, and the teams are in!


With several injuries bothering the squad it’s not quite a full strength lineup for Antonio Conte.

Alvaro Morata still isn’t fit enough even for the bench, where new signing Olivier Giroud is in the squad for the first time. Callum Hudson Odoi is also ready to come on if needed.

Willian returns to a front three with Hazard and Pedro, while in midfield the Bakayoko Kante axis continues.

At the back the injured Christensen is replaced by David Luiz, flanked by Azpi and Cahill.

New signing Emerson Palmieri starts his Blues career on the bench.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Leicester (kick off at 20:00 pm GMT):
