Watford V Chelsea Team News, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

Chelsea will be frustrated by the manner of the defeat against Leicester at the weekend and will want to put that right when they face Watford tomorrow.

The Blues were in control of the game versus the Foxes but did not react well when Jamie Vardy put the visitors 1-0 up early in the second half. A trip to Vicarage Road will call for a strong mentality which manager Maurizio Sarri has questioned in recent weeks so will the London club stand up and be counted?

Chelsea don’t have many injury worries heading into the game. Andreas Christensen is still recovering from a hamstring injury and won’t feature against the Hornets. Alvaro Morata will likely return to the squad, though, after recovering from a twisted knee.

Gary Cahill and Victor Moses are both back in training, but Marco van Ginkel remains out for the long-term with a knee injury.

For Watford, Javi Gracia is still without Andre Gray (knee) and Will Hughes (hip). Sebastian Prodl is still building up his fitness due to a knee problem and is unlikely to start tomorrow.

At the bookies, Chelsea are favourites to win and are 3/4 odds-on with Betfair. A draw is 3/1 at Betfred while a Watford victory is 17/4 at Bet365.

Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Watford:

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, David Luiz, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Giroud, Hazard

Watford’s Predicted XI:

Foster, Femenia, Kabasele, Cathcart, Holebas, Sema, Capoue, Doucoure, Deulofeu, Deeney, Pereyra

Predicted Score – 2-2
