Chelsea will celebrate winning the Premier League title when they take on Watford at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
The Blues wrapped-up the title with a win at West Brom on Friday so Antonio Conte could choose to make a few changes tomorrow. Here is the side we think he will pick for the game:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is expected to keep his place between the sticks and the Belgian international will be looking to add to his clean sheet record with another shut-out against Watford.
Defence: Conte is being tipped to give John Terry a rare start as the long-serving skipper prepares to end his long association with the Blues at the end of the season.
David Luiz could therefore be rested as he’s been nursing a niggling knee injury for several weeks with Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta keeping their places in the back three.
Midfield: N’Golo Kante could also come back in to the side after not starting the last two games. Cesc Fabregas has been excellent in recent matches so Nemanja Matic could be the man to make way for the French enforcer.
Victor Moses should keep his place on the right with Marcos Alonso once again occupying the left wing-back position.
Attack: Conte could reward Michy Batshuayi with a rare start up front after the Belgian hitman came off the bench to score the crucial winner to secure the title last time out.
Willian could also come back in to the side with Pedro dropping out but I expect Eden Hazard to be retained in the attack.
