Flores provides Watford team news update before Chelsea


Watford vs Chelsea

Watford will play host to Chelsea in Saturday’s late Premier League kick-off.

Despite match week 11 of the Premier League season being just around the corner, Watford are still yet to pick up a victory in the league this campaign.

The Hornets have drawn five and lost five of their opening 10 PL ties and currently sit dead bottom of the English top-flight.

That winless run is unlikely to come to an end this weekend either.

Chelsea are flying high under the management of Frank Lampard and head into Saturday 4th in the league, just two points adrift of second-place Manchester City.
