Chelsea will be looking to end their poor run of form when they face Watford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, with Antonio Conte desperate for three points.
The Blues have lost their last two Premier League games, while they were held to a draw by Roma in the Champions League in midweek.
In turn, the pressure is building on Conte to get things back on track, as they have now fallen nine points behind league leaders Manchester City.
They can’t afford another slip-up here, and it will undoubtedly be a tough afternoon’s work for them as Watford are in fine form and will be looking to cause another upset after seeing off Arsenal last weekend.
It’s fair to say that Chelsea supporters aren’t entirely pleased with the line-up that the Italian tactician has put out, as seen in the tweets below.
While many celebrated the fact that Willian was on the bench rather than in the line-up, they switched their focus to Gary Cahill instead.
The England international regularly receives such criticism from fans on social media, but he evidently still has the faith of Conte. Further, many bemoaned the snub of Andreas Christensen, who will have to make do with a place on the bench this weekend.
