Chelsea will try to bounce back from their shock defeat at the hands of Bournemouth when they face Watford in the Premier League on Monday.
The Blues have just one win in their last four outings in the league but still sit in the top four, two points ahead of rivals Tottenham Hotspur. After a productive January transfer window, fans hope the defending champions can halt the slide and start winning again.
Per WhoScored.com, Olivier Giroud could make his debut on Monday, although his lack of starts for Arsenal in the last few months indicates he needs to build up his fitness before he can play the full 90 minutes.
Watford enter the clash with a lengthy list of absentees due to injury―Tommie Hoban, Craig Cathcart, Nathaniel Chalobah, Heurelho Gomes, Younes Kaboul, Kiko Femina, Will Hughes, Miguel Britos and Molla Wague have all been ruled out, per WhoScored―and Didier Ndong is suspended.
Conte’s future has been a hot topic during Chelsea’s difficult spell, and with the conclusion of the January transfer deadline day came renewed questions about his commitment to the club.
The Italian made it clear he wants to continue with the Blues, per football writer Nizaar Kinsella:
The former Juventus boss was hugely popular during his first season in west London, when he guided the team to a title, but his star has faded quite a bit since then. Chelsea haven’t played the most inspiring football this season, with an over-reliance on Eden Hazard and a general lack of creativity leading to a number of dull contests.
