John Terry will make his first Premier League start for Chelsea since September 11 on Monday, as manager Antonio Conte made nine changes from the side that sealed the title on Friday.

John Terry opened the scoring for the home side in the 22nd minute but Capoue canceled out the skipper's goal immediately in the 24th minute.

His joy soon turned to despair as within two minutes he gifted Watford an equaliser.

After Cesar Azpilicueta and Michy Batshuayi put Chelsea 3-1 up, Daryl Janmaat and Stefano Okaka hit back, but Fabregas kept Antonio Conte's men on course to become the first team to win 30 games in a 38-game English top-flight season.

For Antonio Conte's champions, striker Diego Costa is set to make his 35th league appearance for Chelsea this term, having netted 20 times already - playing a huge role in The Blues' title-winning campaign.

Chelsea fans brought Antonio Conte's wife to tears as they sang the Italian manager's name before kick-off and in the early stages of the game. "I want to play (against Sunderland), I want to play every game". N'Golo Kante returned from a two-game absence following a thigh injury to start in midfield alongside Nathaniel Chalobah as Willian and Eden Hazard started either side of Batshuayi.

"At this stage of the season I like to see this type of game", Conte said.

Kenedy's shot was deflected into the path of Nathan Ake, who teed up Batshuayi for a simple tap in.

Azpilicueta said Chelsea had been prepared for a tough challenge from Watford. The Spaniard has not been a regular starter under Conte but he has been a regular contributor to the team with more assists (11) than any other Chelsea player this season.

Chelsea responded to take the lead again and it was Mr Dependable aka Azpilcueta who finished well nine minutes before half-time after Hazard's corner had been headed into his path on the edge of the box.

"The FA Cup final you start to play 10 days before".

"I just love winning and that's been great for me over my career", Terry said in an interview with former England teammates Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher after completing 90 minutes against Watford.

The Hornets had Sebastian Prodl sent off for a second yellow card in stoppage time.
