Chelsea boss Antonio Conte dropped out-of-favour striker Loic Remy for the second consecutive game going into the Watford clash.

The Blues ended up winning the game 2-1 but Remy was not included in the match day or provisional squad.

Chelsea XI to play Watford: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Kante, Matic, Pedro, Oscar, Hazard, Costa

Subs: Begovic, Aina, Loftus-Cheek, Fabregas, Chalobah, Moses, Batshuayi.

Conte does not appear to have plans for Remy this season and Besiktas are currently in talks with the Blues over loaning the French striker a source close to the club told Turkish-football.com.

The Sun meanwhile report that Crystal Palace also want the 29-year-old striker and that Remy wants to leave in pursuit of first team football.

Besiktas would be able to guarantee first team football as Remy would come in as a replacement for Mario Gomez who joined Wolfsburg.

The Black Eagles would also be able to offer the experienced striker Champions League football next season.
