Predicted 4-2-3-1 Chelsea Line Up To Face Watford – Loftus-Cheek To Start

Watford host Chelsea at Vicarage Road on Wednesday night knowing that a victory could move them closer to a European spot and keep their opponents in the bottom half. The Hornets in their last top flight outing, recorded a 2-1 win against struggling Newcastle United in front of their own fans. Chelsea will arrive into this match in high spirits as they extended their unbeaten run to nine games. Guus Hiddink has not lost a game since taking over. They beat MK Dons 5-1 in the FA Cup on Sunday but a top four finish looks to be out of the question.

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois

Thibaut Courtois

The Belgian shot stopper has looked shaky recently, having conceded 6 goals in his last 4 games, but expect the 6’6 goalkeeper to continue in goal against Watford. Although in most of the cases it was poor defending which was largely at fault as opposed to deficiencies on behalf of the goalkeeper. This is the Premier League and whenever Courtois is fit, he will start.

Defenders: Branislav Ivanović, Kurt Zouma, John Terry and Cesar Azpilicueta


The big news for Chelsea this week is that club legend John Terry will not be extending his contract after this season, however he still remains one of the best defenders in the team and will likely partner Zouma in the centre. The Serbian (Ivanovic) has been in acceptable form recently and after penning a new one year deal at the club, he will hope to show the fans what they’re getting. Azpilicueta has been one of our consistent players this season, and with Baba Rahman struggling to adapt to the league, the Spaniard is almost guaranteed a start every week.
