Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction, Injury Report vs Watford



After a disappointing loss against Crystal Palace, Chelsea will be wanting to spring back into form with a win against Watford.

There has been talk recently of manager Antonio Conte getting the sack, and whether that’s realistic, or just gossip, this game will be an important one, and could have some influence towards his future at the club.

Conte has rubbished claims that players are feeling angry and disappointed about the way things are moving along at the moment. He will want to regain some positive momentum heading into the next stretch of games.

Chelsea’s squad depth has been tested in recent times with injuries from star players. Danny Drinkwater will remain out of selection after a calf strain, but should hopefully be available for the next couple of games. N’Golo Kante is also out of action with thigh problems, but he could return in mid-November.

Victor Moses is also out with a hamstring injury, and his return date is unknown.
