Chelsea’s starting eleven to face Watford at Vicarage Road in the Premier League this evening has been confirmed.

Maurizio Sarri has opted against following the example of the managers of our rivals and has stuck with the same starting eleven which featured against Leicester City at the weekend.

We had expected Sarri to shuffle his pack, whether that be in hope of provoking a reaction after our defeat last time out, or to avoid his players becoming fatigued over this congested run of games.

Though it’s arguably our strongest team that Sarri has put out tonight, Einstein once argued that the definition of insanity was repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results. Make of that what you will.

Eden Hazard leads the line once again, with Willian and Pedro flanking him in attack. What do you think of the team, Blues? Let us know your thoughts on Twitter @TalkChelsea, where you can also follow our coverage of tonight’s game.
