Watford vs Chelsea: Tuchel makes six changes

Chelsea will be up against Watford at Vicarage Road tonight as they aim to get back to winning ways after dropping points over the weekend. 

The Blues settled for a 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday at Stamford Bridge. Watford suffered a 4-2 loss to Leicester City, marking the eighth defeat of the season in the domestic league.

Tuchel has made six changes from the 1-1 draw against Man Utd; it's Azpilicueta and Christensen in for Thiago Silva and the injured James in defence, while Jorginho drops out in central midfield for Saul Niguez.

Mason Mount starts in an entirely fresh front line alongside Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic, with Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, and Callum Hudson-Odoi all dropped to the bench. Romelu Lukaku is also on the bench.  

Watford XI: Bachmann, Femenia, Cathcart, Troost-Ekong, Masina, Louza, Sissoko, Cleverley, Pedro, King, Dennis

Subs: Elliot, Ngakia, Rose, Gosling, Fletcher, Tufan, Kabasele, Hernandez, Kucka

Chelsea XI: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Chalobah, Alonso, Loftus-Cheek, Niguez, Mount, Pulisic, Havertz

Subs: Arrizabalaga, Jorginho, Thiago Silva, Lukaku, Werner, Barkley, Hudson-Odoi, Ziyech, Sarr
