Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from their midweek defeat to West Ham United when Watford are the visitors to Stamford Bridge for The Blues’ latest Premier League fixture on Saturday evening.
The Blues went down 3-2 at the London Stadium against a struggling West Ham United side, it was a disappointing end to what had been an impressive return to action for Frank Lampard’s men.
Chelsea will again be without defender Fikayo Tomori who remains on the sidelines while Mateo Kovacic will miss the match against The Hornets with an Achilles injury.
Winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is pushing for a start after returning to fitness while Jorginho, Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud could be considered for recalls should manager Lampard wish to make changes following his side’s midweek defeat.
Despite enjoying a resurgence prior to the suspension of the Premier League in March, Watford’s recent form is woeful with Nigel Pearson’s side having taken just a point from an available 12.
The Hornets travel to The Bridge without the services of Daryl Janmaat, Isaac Success and Gerard Deulofeu through injury. Domingos Quina, Nathaniel Chalobah and Andre Gray could feature following a recent breach of discipline.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 8pm on Saturday evening and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
