Chelsea’s chance to recover from their defeat to Leicester comes fairly quickly as they travel to local team Watford on Boxing Day. Watford was the scene of a heavy defeat last season as we lost 4-1 and for that and the previous reason coupled with catching up to Tottenham Chelsea will want to return to winning ways. Watford are 7th in the league and have been one of the teams that have performed particularly well this season. They are good in defence and have a pacy attack upfront. They are fighting it out with a couple of teams for a position in next seasons Europa League.
Sarri literally does not need to pay Alonso, and needs to start Emerson, Loftus-Cheek and Hudson Odoi ahead of Willian and another player to appease the Chelsea fans. It is not that they are angry at Sarri far from it it is just the fact that players like Willian have no value and are just poor all around. He literally does not do anything and for that reason we are better of starting youth ahead of him. Chelsea need to bounce back with a win and there is no capacity for any other result.
Chelsea Team Preview
Sarri has a fit team and Morata also returns for selection. Hazard is most likely to start upfront but I would like to see Pedro, and Hudson-Odoi start alongside him. Loftus-Cheek should also start alongside Emerson. Rotation is needed and hopefully these players prove that they can perform regularly.
Watford Team Preview
Watford and Gracia have a full team to select from. They probably will rotate a couple of players but keep the core simple.
Starting XI Prediction
A must win game for Chelsea! COME ON YOU BLUES!!!
