Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways after their defeat to Bournemouth when they take on Watford at Vicarage Road this evening.

Antonio Conte has decided to start new signing Olivier Giroud from the bench as he’s only recently recovered from a hamstring injury so Eden Hazard is deployed in the ‘false 9’ role this evening.

Willian is fit to get a recall as he starts in attack alongside Pedro while Victor Moses also comes in to the side with Davide Zappacosta moving across to the left flank in place of Marcos Alonso.

David Luiz is recalled to the defence with Andreas Christensen ruled out with a hamstring injury while Tiemoue Bakayoko lines-up alongside N’Golo Kante in midfield.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Watford

Karnezis (GK); Mariappa, Prödl, Holebas; Janmaat, Doucouré, Capoue, Zeegelaar; Deulofeu, Deeney (C), Richarlison.

Subs: Bachmann (GK), Mukena, Ndong, Pereyra, Lukebakio, Carrillo, Gray.

Chelsea

Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill (c); Moses, Bakayoko, Kante, Zappacosta; Willian, Hazard, Pedro.

Subs: Caballero, Rudiger, Emerson, Drinkwater, Fabregas, Hudson-Odoi, Giroud.
