Cheslea are taking on a depleted Watford tonight at Vicarage Road as Thomas Tuchel’s side aim to keep hold of top spot in the Premier League.

All three of the title race contenders are in action tonight and all three face testing away trips: second-place Manchester City travel to Steven Gerrard’s rejuvenated Aston Villa, while Liverpool face a Merseyside derby with Everton at Goodison Park.
