CHE vs WAT Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Chelsea will be travelling to Watford, Hertfordshire for a Boxing Day fixture in the Premier League against Watford at the Vicarage Road, on Wednesday evening (IST).
Few teams can rival the bumpy ride which Watford are experiencing this season in the Premier League. On their day they can be an absolute joy to watch with the likes of Roberto Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu scoring some beautiful solo goals, while on other days they can be a total disaster, the 0-4 home loss against Bournemouth highlighting that notion.
But despite that, despite having no consistency whatsoever, the Hornets have ripped the mickey out of every prediction. They were supposed to struggle after their former Manager Marko Silva robbed them of their biggest talent in Richarlsion in the summer. Still, they remain out of the danger by a mile and sit at seventh with 27 points from the first 18 games of the season.
It’s quite an achievement for Javi Gracia and his team as they are just 14 points short of matching last season’s points tally.
Maurizio Sarri once again persisted with a false-nine formation for the weekend clash against Leicester City. The same tactics which produced a remarkable 2-0 win over Manchester City just a few weeks ago. But against Leicester, it back-fired as Chelsea fired a blank and couldn’t produce enough chances in the 2nd half.
The 0-1 loss at the Stamford Bridge has left the team 11 points off the pace. The five-time champions now have a different fight on their hands as Arsenal are breathing down their neck for the Champions League places. At the moment, only a better goal-difference separate them from the Gunners who are fifth in the table.
Sarri has been reluctant to give both Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata regular chances in the team. But the lack of goals from both the strikers hasn’t helped the cause as well.

CHE vs WAT Dream11 Playing 11 – (Probable) –
Watford– Foster (GK), Femenia, Kabasele, Cathcart, Holebas, Capoue, Doucoure, Sema, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Deeney
Chelsea– Arrizabalaga (GK), Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley, Pedro, Giroud, Hazard
CHE vs WAT Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Giroud is expected to start the match but we have overlooked him because of his blatant form in front of the goal.
Hazard is the most dangerous man for Chelsea, while in the midfield, Jorginho and Kante remain the custodian at par. While Pereyra can sizzle on any given day.
Deulofeu comes in, replacing Deeney at the front while there are not many changes in other departments.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Watford have registered some good wins both at home and away. But they have also lost all the home games against big six this season. With Chelsea feeling bruised and hurt, Sarri’s team could be more aggressive in the match.
An away win for the Blues.
