How should Chelsea line up against Watford in Conte's first away test of the season?

Hello there, Internet friend!  It's almost time for the next Chelsea match.  I don't know about you, but I'm feeling a lot more confident now than this time last week.  But still, it's been just one game and there's plenty of time for it to all come crashing down.

Chelsea failed to beat Watford in two tries last season, though we also managed to not lose either match, which, given the circumstances, was almost acceptable.  Almost.  (Not really acceptable, actually.)  Conte's task then will be to one-up the dour 0-0 away draw from last season, just as he one-upped the 2-2 draw vs. West Ham on Monday with a 2-1 victory.

The available squad remains exactly the same as at the start of this week, with only Michael Hector confirming his unavailability for the rest of the season via a loan move to Eintracht Frankfurt.  Mikel's still at the Olympics (and going for bronze on Saturday) while Kurt Zouma continues his ACL rehab.

We're back to the old form because the previous one was needlessly complicated for what we're trying to achieve.  I added an optional field for formation, just for funsies.

Choose wisely!
