20 Aug

Watford battle Chelsea in the Premier League from 3pm this afternoon.


Much has been said of the rivalry between managers Walter Mazzarri and Antonio Conte ahead of today’s clash at Vicarage Road, but this won’t interest the players.

The Hornets will have been satisfied with their opening 1-1 draw with Southampton, while the Blues began their campaign by beating West Ham United, courtesy of a late goal from Diego Costa.

Since this clash, Watford have completed the signings of Juventus midfielder Roberto Pereyra and Sunderland defender Younes Kaboul, and both will now be awaiting their debuts.

And the teams for today’s meeting have been confirmed.

Watford XI: Gomes, Cathcart, Prödl, Britos; Amrabat, Behrami, Capoue, Guedioura, Holebas; Deeney, Ighalo
Subs: Pantilimon, Nyom, Doucoure, Anya, Hoban, Zuniga, Vydra

Chelsea XI: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Kante; Pedro, Oscar, Matic, Hazard; Diego Costa
Subs: Begovic, Aina, Loftus-Cheek, Fabregas, Chalobah, Moses, Batshuayi
