Kick-off: Saturday, October 21, 2017. 11:30 GMT

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Chelsea host Watford at Stamford Bridge this afternoon in a lunchtime kick-off that could shake the table for a top four spot.

Chelsea are currently 5th on the table and Watford are 4th, and the Blues will need nothing less than a victory to overtake the high-flying Watford side.

Watford come into this game with a bit of form, having defeated Arsenal at home last weekend and they have only lost a game this season, a 6-0 defeat at Manchester City.

Watford have won three, drawn two and lost just once this season.

Chelsea have dropped form since winning Atletico Madrid away from home in the Champions League last month. Since then, the Blues have lost two games and drawn once.

In all competitions, Chelsea have won three games, lost two and drawn two in the last six games, while in the Premier League, it’s been two losses, three wins and one draw for the Blues.

Chelsea have a good record against Watford as the Blues are unbeaten in 12 league and cup matches against Watford (W9, D3)

Watford’s only Premier League win in eight meetings against the Blues (D2, L5) was back in September 1999.

Chelsea have lost their last two league games, but the Blues haven’t lost three consecutive league matches since November 2015.

The Blues have won one of their four Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge this season (D1, L2).
