A 3-2 defeat at the London Stadium has allowed Manchester United to close the gap in the race for Champions League qualification. United face Bournemouth earlier in the day.
Watford, meanwhile, face a battle to avoid the drop and have not won since Premier League football resumed. Will they boost their chances by condemning Chelsea to another damaging defeat.

Chelsea vs Watford is scheduled for a 8pm BST kick-off on Saturday, July 4, 2020.
The match will be behind closed doors at Stamford Bridge with no fans due to be present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.

Frank Lampard could ring the changes after losing to West Ham, with Kurt Zouma pushing for a recall. Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud will also fancy their chances.
Jorginho is expected to come in after Mateo Kovacic picked up a knock.
Watford are ready to welcome back lockdown-rebels Andre Gray, Domingos Quina and Nathaniel Chalobah.
Prediction: Watford 0-2 Chelsea
Chelsea's loss at the London Stadium was deserved but can still be considered a blip. Frank Lampard's side have looked impressive since football resumed and I expect them to get back to winning ways.
