It`s a lunch-time kick-off for Chelsea this weekend when they face Watford on Saturday.

Ahead of a fixture that is fast being labelled as a ‘must-win` game for Antonio, after a failure to win any of the previous three fixtures, we have some early team news from both camps.

Starting with Chelsea:

Conte will definitely not be able to call upon the services of Victor Moses, N`Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater, the first two have hamstring injuries whilst the latter is still recovering from a calf injury.

Chelsea also have doubts about David Luiz and Tiemoue Bakayoko who picked up calf and groin problems in the 3-3 midweek encounter with Roma.

Continuing with Watford:

The Hornets picked up no new injuries during their shock 2-1 win over Arsenal last time out.

However, they have several players classified as long-term absentees, with Craig Cathcart, Nathaniel Chalobah and Isaac Success all falling into this category.

Also side-lined through injury are Younes Kaboul, Sebastian Prodl.
