When is Chelsea v Watford?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Saturday July 4.

What time does Chelsea v Watford kick-off?

The game is scheduled for an 8pm kick-off and is one of five Premier League matches that day.

What is at stake?

Both teams will be viewing it as a vital game, without question. Chelsea are just about holding onto a top four spot at the moment, but their Champions League hopes were wounded by the 3-2 defeat to West Ham.

Watford have very different yet just as pressing concerns, as they find themselves involved in a true relegation dogfight at the bottom with games starting to run out.

Where can I watch Chelsea v Watford?

The match will be broadcast by Sky Sports.

Is Chelsea v Watford free-to-air?

It’s not, no, meaning you are either going to need a Sky Sports subscription to watch it or buy a Now TV sports pass.

What is the team news?

Chelsea got 90 minutes out of both Christian Pulisic and Andreas Christensen against West Ham despite them being injury doubts for the game, so may opt to give them some rest in this one.

Danny Welbeck is pushing for another recall after proving his fitness coming off the bench since the restart, and his extra quality may be tough for Nigel Pearson to ignore. The Hornets report no fresh injury concerns, so expect Ismaila Sarr, Troy Deeney, and Craig Cathcart to be involved again.

What happened in the reverse match?

It was an absorbing contest back in November when these two sides met, with Tammy Abraham and Pulisic scoring to secure a 2-1 success for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.

What are the odds?

Chelsea are the clear 5/2 favourites to win this one and compound Watford’s relegation worries. Watford can be backed at 7/2, with the draw available at 13/2.
