Team News

Watford have been handed two fresh injury concerns with Emmanuel Dennis and Adam Masina following the Leicester defeat - the former remains a doubt but Masina could be passed fit.

First-choice goalkeeper Ben Foster missed the King Power loss with a groin strain, taking his place on the sidelines with Nicolas N'Koulou, Peter Etebo, Kwadwo Baah, Ismaila Sarr, Ken Sema and Francisco Sierralta.

The injury-hit Hornets do have options for change in the full-back positions with Jeremy Ngakia and Danny Rose, while Joao Pedro will hope for an opportunity up top with Dennis doubtful.
Watford possible starting lineup:
Bachmann; Ngakia, Cathcart, Troost-Ekong, Rose; Kucka, Sissoko, Tufan; Hernandez, Pedro, King

As for the visitors, Romelu Lukaku was only fit enough for a substitute cameo against Man United but could be ready to start here, although N'Golo Kante is likely to remain out.

Tuchel will definitely not have Ben Chilwell or Mateo Kovacic at his disposal either, with Saul Niguez and Ross Barkley pining for opportunities in Chelsea's depleted midfield, and Tuchel has also conceded that Jorginho, Reece James and Timo Werner will need assessing.

Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta will surely come into consideration for starts in defence, and Mason Mount should be well enough to rejoin the attack.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Chalobah, Christensen, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Barkley, Alonso; Mount, Havertz; Lukaku
Prediction: Watford 0-2 Chelsea
