Chelsea Vs Watford Dream11 Team
Kepa Arrizabalaga: Kepa Arrizabalaga has kept 22 clean sheets in all competitions after establishing himself as one of the best players in the Premier League. The Spanish International is a brilliant shot-stopper and shows his brilliance with his feet as well.
Cesar Azpilicueta: Cesar Azpilicueta is an omnipresent member in Chelsea’s backline. The Spanish International operates through the right defensive flank and has done well to a particular extent. He has one and seven assists in all competitions this term.
David Luiz: In the absence of Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz is expected to lead the backline. The Brazilian International is not a brilliant defender, but he has the nack of scoring goals from free-kicks and possesses a huge threat from the set pieces.
Craig Cathcart: Craig Cathcart has been one of the best performers for Watford in the backline. He has made 34 appearances this campaign, scoring thrice in the Premier League alone. He will start at the back for the Hornets.
Jose Holebas: Jose Holebas is one of the picks this season. The Spanish International has three goals and six assists to his name this Premier League campaign as he operates as the left-back. He likes to get forward and link with the attackers.
Jorginho: Jorginho likes to sit back with the defence and dictate the play from the back. The midfielder wins plenty of duels in the middle of the park and is the second assigned penalty taker for the Blues.
Abdoulaye Doucoure: Abdoulaye Doucoure is one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League and he lives under the radar. The Watford midfielder has a great shooting boot which has the ability to blisters past the keeper from long ranges. He wins plenty of tackles and contributes more to the final third as well.
Etienne Capoue: Etienne Capoue sits back with the defence along with Abdoulaye Doucoure in the middle of the park. The French International is the player with less attacking freedom, thereby committing himself with total defensive displays.
Gerard Deulofeu: Gerard Deulofeu has been starting games for Watford of late. But, he has been effective, to say the least. The Spanish International has 9 goals and five assists this season and is likely to continue his red hot form on Sunday as the Blues do not have the strongest of defences.
Eden Hazard (C): Eden Hazard did not start on Thursday against Frankfurt, which automatically means that the Belgian would be included in the starting lineup on Sunday. He has 16 goals and 13 assists to his name this campaign, and is the main man for Chelsea currently.
Andre Grey (VC): Skipper Troy Deeney was sent off against Arsenal. This has made Javi Gracia start Andre Gray who has not disappointed. He has scored seven goals and has two assists to his name. He will start up front for the visitors.
