Chelsea have a very important game on Monday night against Watford.

After the massive home defeat against Bournemouth, it’s expected that Chelsea will take all three points at the Vicarage Road as the fight for top four intensifies.

Ahead of the visit to Watford, Ross Barkley is set to miss the game through injury. The January signing is understood to have picked up a hamstring injury in training this week, according to the Telegraph.

The full extent of the issue is not yet clear, with Chelsea medics monitoring the attacking midfielder.

Barkley is yet to reach match fitness after just recovering from an injury that has kept him out of action for about six months.
