Chelsea are without Kante, Kovacic, and Chilwell for the Watford game. James, Jorginho, and Werner are doubts. Here are the 2 possible ways the Blues could line up vs Watford on Wednesday night;
Option 1: Christensen, Cesar back in
After the Blues dropped points against Man United, a comeback is necessary to get their title challenge back on track.
Chelsea may be without Reece James at right-back and an option to replace him could be moving Azpilicueta wide again.
Lukaku’s return could provide the necessary firepower upfront, which would allow the Blues to play a more defensive wingback.
Mendy; Christensen, Chalobah, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso; Mount, Havertz, Lukaku.
Option 2: Some Key Changes
Chelsea have played 2 intense games back to back and a few daring changes could be on the cards against easier opposition.
Saul Niguez could return from the cold to get another chance in a Blue shirt to give Jorginho the time he needs to rest.
Malang Sarr could be another one with a shout to start, while Callum Hudson-Odoi could ensure Chelsea’s attacking threat on the right side remains intact.
Mendy; Chalobah, Christensen, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Saul, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso; Mount, Pulisic, Lukaku.
