With three wins in-a-row things were looking so good for the Blues until out of nowhere a shock 1-0 defeat last weekend to former champions Leicester City. With progress halted, Maurizio Sarri has plenty to ponder for his Chelsea line up vs Watford.
Watford are in a bit of form themselves so this will be no walk in the park on Boxing Day for Chelsea, however the positive ahead of the kick off is that Alvaro Morata is back in training and could be selected on Wednesday.
CFCnet’s predicted Chelsea line up vs Watford see’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek come back in to the midfield (maybe optimistically), but otherwise it stays familiar to the previous Chelsea starting XIs in the past weeks – rotation could happen on Boxing Day or in the next match, against Crystal Palace in the Sunday Premier League clash.
Eden Hazard is once again set to be deployed as the false nine in attack, with Willian and Pedro set to support him on either side.
Kepa Arrizabalaga, Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso and N’Golo Kante all look certain starters at Vicarage Road vs Watford.
How Chelsea Could Line Up Against Watford
Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga
Defence: Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Marcos Alonso
Midfield: Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, N’Golo Kante
Attack: Willian, Eden Hazard, Pedro
