CONFIRMED: Chelsea and Watford line-ups

Stamford Bridge Inside

Here is how Chelsea and Watford will line up for their FA Cup match:

Chelsea starting XI: Cech, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Cahill, Filipe Luis, Ramires, Mikel, Oscar, Schurrle, Remy, Drogba

Chelsea subs: Courtois, Ivanovic, Ake, Matic, Willian, Salah, Costa

Watford starting XI: Bond, Hoban, Cathcart, Angella, Paredes, Munari, Tozser, Forestieri, Pudil, Ighalo, Deeney

Watford subs: Gilmartin, Doyley, Murray, Vydra, Abdi, Doherty, Smith

Chelsea begin their FA Cup campaign with a quadruple still on the cards, no matter how unlikely such a feat is in modern football.

Jose Mourinho’s side are currently top of the Premier League on goal-difference but they will not be taking this Watford side lightly, with the Championship club pushing hard for promotion back to the top flight.

Chelsea have won four of their five FA Cup encounters with today’s opponents, and they have scored nine with no reply in their last two matches against Watford.

But anything can happen in this competition, something Mourinho will know all too well, and Chelsea will have to be at their best to keep those hopes of a famous clean-sweep alive.
