Chelsea visit Vicarage Road to face Watford in the Premier League this evening, and Maurizio Sarri will be thankful that his injury list is not extensive ahead of the game.
Following our defeat to Leicester City at the weekend, we need to see a reaction against the Hornets this evening.
Consecutive negative results would see us fall even further behind Tottenham and it would allow Arsenal to leapfrog us into their beloved fourth place.
We need to beat Watford, there’s no two ways about it.
Alvaro Morata (twisted knee) was back in training on Friday and the striker is expected to be included in the 18 at Vicarage Road. Andreas Christensen (hamstring) may not play again this year. #CFC

Especially during this busy time of year, Premier League sides can suffer with their players becoming fatigued, or even injured. Thankfully for Sarri, none of his usual starting eleven are expected to miss our trip to Watford tonight.
Andreas Christensen will not travel, which is a blow to the Dane, with Sarri expected to rotate at some point during the festive period. Alvaro Morata is fit again and we may well see him in action tonight.
There’s no other injury concerns, asides from Victor Moses and Marco Van Ginkel, neither of whom are likely to be in Sarri’s thinking at any point during his career as Chelsea manager.
