Chelsea are without a win in their last three games but remain in a strong position for a top-four finish and qualification for next season’s Champions League.
Watford, meanwhile, have the FA Cup final date with Manchester City to look forward to on May 18 although will still be hoping for a strong finish to their league campaign, with the game against Chelsea followed by another London derby against West Ham.
Sarri has found his first year in England to be challenging. The Blues started the league campaign on fire, going unbeaten for 18 games until a 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in November. But that loss triggered a malaise at Stamford Bridge.
The Italian has been unable to resurrect his early-season impact, and Chelsea have often looked uninspired and, at times, disinterested.
An impressive run in the UEFA Europa League has kept the season exciting for supporters, and the slump in results at Arsenal and Manchester United has aided the Blues’ chances of a top-four finish.
Watford have enjoyed an impressive campaign, and the success in the cup has refocused their priority heading to its conclusion.
The Hornets’ league form has been affected since their FA Cup semi-final win over Wolverhampton Wanderers; Javi Gracia’s team have registered only one win in their past four.
Watford are safe in mid-table, potentially handing the impetus to Chelsea, who are in greater need of the points.
Gracia could take the option to rest his best players as the trip to Wembley Stadium grows ever closer.
Chelsea could only draw 1-1 away at Eintracht Frankfurt in their Europa League semi-final first leg on Thursday. That result could tempt Sarri to save his superstar talent for the return leg.
