All That You Need To Know About Chelsea’s Match Against Watford

Chelsea will play against Watford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. This match is going to be a very vital one for the change in scenario of the League Table of Premier League. Watford are currently situated at 4th position in the League Table with 15 points in their 8 encounters so far while Chelsea are in 5th position with 13 points from the same number of matches.

The Blues’ back to back defeat against Manchester City and Crystal Palace had suddenly kicked them out of title contenders’ list. They are now 9 points behind the League leaders Manchester City. Chelsea had earned a hard fought draw against Roma on Wednesday in the Champions League with a scoreline of 3-3. The continuous injury woes are affecting on Chelsea’s play. But Hazard’s brace in the last match against Roma will give them some boost ahead of the Watford match.

Watford will be high on confidence after beating Arsenal in the previous Match in the Premier League last weekend. They had come back from 1-0 deficit to make it 2-1 at the end for Watford. Troy Deeney’s penalty goal and Cleverley’s goal at the last moment was enough for them to beat Arsenal. They will be keen to pull off another win against Chelsea and mark a real good impression at the start of the new season.
