3-4-2-1: Giroud starts, Bakayoko dropped in Chelsea probable line-up vs Watford

Chelsea were stunned in their last Premier League game against Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge but they have an opportunity to bounce back when they take on the Hornets at Vicarage Road tonight.

Various reports making the rounds today have claimed that any result other than a win might get Conte fired from the reigns of Chelsea as they are on the verge of a crises.

Goals from Callum Wilson, Junior Stanislas and Nathan Ake blew Chelsea away and they are now in fourth position on the Premier League table and could even slip out of top four if they don’t bounce back sooner.

Meanwhile, Watford only recently appointed Javi Gracia as manager having sacked Marco Silva after a poor run of form. They are currently in 11th place on the Premier League table but any slip might see them in the relegation zone.


Andreas Christensen could not complete the Bournemouth game with an hamstring injury and he has only joined the like Willian who has similar injury problem.

Meanwhile, Alvaro Morata is still battling with a back problem but we expect Olivier Giroud to make his debut in place of Morata today.

David Luiz, Cesc Fabregas and Thibaut Courtois have all returned from injuries and they are in contention for this one.
