Chelsea will be playing today in the Premier League Matchday 26 away from home against the Premier League side, Watford, in a must-win match for Antonio Conte who is facing the sack, and the team who is going through a bad time especially after their loss against Bournemouth FC 3-0 last week at home, Stamford Bridge, in the Premier League Matchday 25.
The starting Xl is as following:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois
Defenders: Gary Cahil (captain), David Luiz, Cesar Azpilicueta
Midfielders: Victor Moses, N’Golo Kante, Tiemoue Bakayoko, and Davide Zappacosta
Forward: Eden Hazard, Pedro, and Willian

Chelsea’s newly arrived French international striker, Oliver Giroud, is expected to make his debut today away from home with Chelsea as a sub.
Chelsea should play this match and eye the three points and nothing else. Antonio, Conte as well he will be playing this match like a final due to its importance, especially with the news that Chelsea’s board and the owner, Roman Abrahmovic, may sack Antonio Conte if he fails to win this match.
