Watford is preparing to host leaders Chelsea at Vicarage Road in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
Currently sitting top of the table on 30-points, one point clear of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, Thomas Tuchel’s high-flying Blues will be hopeful they can extend their lead at the top when they take on newly-promoted Watford.
Elsewhere, Watford, now managed by Claudio Raneri, will be just as pumped up for the evening kick-off – especially considering they’re just three points clear of the league’s dreaded drop-zone.
Ahead of what is expected to be a decent encounter in London, both sides have named their starting lineups, which includes a rare start for Atletico Madrid loanee Saul Niguez.
However, the Blues are still without the firepower of main-striker Romelu Lukaku, who has missed his side’s last four domestic matches after picking up an injury against Malmo last month.
