Chelsea’s defeat at home to Manchester City may have ended up as a mere 1-0 scoreline, but that doesn’t tell the story of how they were dominated by their northern rivals.

Today’s match, against a bright and well organised Watford (k-o 12.30pm), will see the Pensioners determined to get back on track and chase both Manchester clubs to the title.

It’s uncertain whether central midfielder N’Golo Kanté will be fit, but summer signing Tiémoué Bakayoko has shown he has the legs and technical skill to patrol the centre of the pitch and put out fires.

But can he provide his team with the muscle to go on and win?
