Fixture: Watford vs Chelsea
Competition: Premier League
Kick-off: 15:00 (UK time)

Antonio Conte has settled on his starting eleven and substitutes for this afternoon's Premier League meeting between his Chelsea side and Watford at Vicarage Road.

Chelsea got their league season off to a win on Monday night when they defeated West Ham at Stamford Bridge, edging out the Hammers with a 2-1 win.

Conte will want more of the same from his charges as he pits his wits against another Italian manager in the shape of Walter Mazzarri. The Chelsea boss goes with Diego Costa to spearhead the attack, with Eden Hazard looking to provide support. Willian misses out with a calf problem.

Nemanja Matic is handed a start in midfield, as are Oscar and Pedro Rodriguez, while N'Golo Kante will look to protect the defence. John Terry is captain for Chelsea and partners Gary Cahill in the heart of the back four. On the bench, Conte can call for Michy Batshuayi if he needs more firepower.
