Watford vs Chelsea - Heurelho Gomes missing for Watford

Watford will continue to be without goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes for their Premier League clash against Chelsea on Monday evening.

Gomes has been sidelined for three matches with a back complaint. Didier Ndong could make his first Hornets appearance following his deadline-day switch from Sunderland.

Younes Kaboul (foot), Miguel Britos (ankle), Kiko Femenia, Will Hughes (both hamstring), Craig Cathcart, and Nathaniel Chalobah (all knee) remain unavailable.

Chelsea new boys Olivier Giroud and Emerson Palmieri are in contention for their debuts.

Striker Giroud and defender Palmieri arrived at Stamford Bridge last week, although they may have to settle for places on the bench at best as they return to full fitness following recent injuries.

Centre-back Andreas Christensen, who limped off with a hamstring problem against Bournemouth on Wednesday, and striker Alvaro Morata (back) are out, but forward Willian (hamstring) could feature while defender David Luiz (ankle) has returned to training.
