Chelsea vs Watford: Premier League prediction, team news, line-ups, start time, live, TV

Chelsea will be desperate to get back to winning ways after back-to-back defeats severely derailed their Premier League title defence.

Manchester City and Crystal Palace bettered the champions in recent weeks and they now face a fourth-placed Watford team fresh from beating Arsenal.




It may only be October but another defeat - matching three on the which led to Jose Mourinho's sacking two years ago - could see the Blues already 12 points adrift of pace-setters Manchester City.

TV and live online coverage

The match will be televised live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event, with coverage starting from 11.30am. Sky Sports subscribers will be able to stream the match online via SkyGo and the SkyGo app.

Alternatively, you can follow all the build-up and action from 11.30am with NEW GERSY blog.

Team news

Chelsea
Antonio Conte have fresh fitness concerns over David Luiz and Tiemoue Bakayoko after Wednesday's Champions League exploits.

Luiz, playing as a holding midfielder with N'Golo Kante already sidelined, was withdrawn early against Roma as a precaution before Bakayoko complained of pain in his groin.

Victor Moses remains out, so Davide Zappacosta will likely come in, and Danny Drinkwater is still not ready for his debut. Conte hopes to have Kante back before the next international break.




Watford
Watford must again do without defenders Sebastian Prodl (thigh) and Younes Kaboul (hamstring).

The Hornets have no fresh injury problems from last weekend's win over Arsenal, where captain Troy Deeney again started on the bench.

Midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah and defender Craig Cathcart both continue their recovery from knee problems, along with forwards Isaac Success and Mauro Zarate.


Predicted line-ups

Chelsea starting XI: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill; Zappacosta, Fabregas, Bakayoko, Alonso; Pedro, Morata, Hazard

Watford starting XI: Gomes; Mariappa, Kabasele, Britos; Femenia, Cleverley, Doucoure, Holebas; Pereyra, Richarlison; Gray
