Chelsea will face Watford on Sunday in the Premier League match. The match holds a huge significance as the top four race in the Premier League is getting tougher day by day. The Blues will be desperate to make it to the top four this time. Chelsea are currently at the 4th place in the Premier League with 68 points in 36 matches so far. The Blues have a great chance to move to the third place if they can beat Watford at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Bournemouth gave the Blues a great chance to grab the third position in the League table.
Tottenham Hotspur were beaten by the Cherries at their home ground. Heung Min Son and Juan Foyth were shown red cards. It was a game full of drama. However, Spurs were able to keep the clean sheet till the 90th minute of the match. Spurs are currently at the third position in the League Table with 70 points in the Premier League. A win against Watford will take Chelsea to the third place as their points will go to 71 then.
The other two clubs fighting for the top four spot, Manchester United and Arsenal are also going to play on Sunday. Manchester United are going to face Huddersfield Town in an away match. On the other hand, the Gunners will face Brighton and Hove Albion at the Emirates. So, a Super Sunday is certainly on the cards.
Team News :
The Blues are really trying hard to make it to the top four in this season. The match is going to special for the Chelsea fans for another reason. The Blues will wear their new kit tomorrow at Stamford Bridge and it might be the last match at Stamford Bridge for Eden Hazard in the Premier League as it is seeming that the deal between Chelsea and Real Madrid is done now. So, it is going to be an emotional affair for all Chelsea fans. The players will certainly wish to win the match to give a proper farewell to their favourite Eden Hazard.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is certainly one of the big absentees in this match for the Blues along with Antonio Rudiger. The Blues still have last few matches left for the season and they are going to miss these two players badly in the final games of the season. Pedro will probably start alongside Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain at the attacking third for the Blues. A win is the need of the hour for the home side and they will certainly push for it.
Watford have not much injury concerns ahead of their clash against Chelsea. Troy Deeney and Deulofeu are going to the main threats of Watford in this match against the Blues at Stamford Bridge.
