Chelsea team confirmed vs Watford: Kurt Zouma starts as Antonio Rudiger is dropped



Chelsea are looking to bounce back from their midweek defeat when they take on Watford this evening at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues were bitterly disappointing in the 3-2 defeat to West Ham on Wednesday night, and Frank Lampard has made a couple of changes to the team.

One is enforced with Mateo Kovacic not fit to play due to the Achilles’ injury which he picked up during the match at the London Stadium.

Meanwhile, Oliver Giroud comes into the starting XI to replace Tammy Abraham, who had an off day against the Hammers.

Lampard will be hoping for more from his side in a massive game for the Blues if they want a top four place.

See the full Chelsea team below.

Chelsea: Kepa; James, Zouma, Christensen, Azpilicueta; Kante, Barkley, Mount, Willian, Pulisic, Giroud.

Subs: Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Jorginho, Gilmour, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Pedro, Abraham.
