Chelsea vs Watford – English Premier League – Preview

Chelsea vs Watford

Chelsea vs Watford – Chelsea host Watford at the Stamford Bridge on 15th May, Monday in the penultimate game of their 2016/17 English Premier League season. The Blues locked in on the Premier League title with a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion last Monday.

However, there is still a lot to play for with Chelsea standing at the cusp of winning a record thirty games in the league, should they manage to win their next two matches. Chelsea have eighty-seven points as of now.

Their opponents tonight, Watford, are sixteenth in the league with forty points and have lost all of their previous four league games.

Team News

Chelsea do not have any injury or suspension concerns while Watford will be without the injured Roberto Pereyra, Mauro Zarate and Younes Kaboul.

Chelsea Possible Starting Lineup: Asmir Begovic, Nathan Ake, John Terry, Kurt Zouma, Victor Moses, N’Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas, Willian, Michy Batshuayi, Eden Hazard.

Watford Possible Starting Lineup: Heurelho Gomes, Adrian Mariappa, Sebastian Prodl, Christian Kabasele, Daryl Janmaat, Etienne Capoue, Valon Behrami, Tom Cleverley, Jose Holebas, M’Baye Niang, Troy Deeney.

“In the end it’s paid off so it’s nice for the players that all the work we’ve done this season counts for something and means we get to have this amazing feeling again. It’s an amazing feeling. I live for these moments of joy and excitement.”

– Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Chelsea vs Watford H2H Stats, the last five games between these two clubs resulted in three wins for Chelsea and two draws. In fact, Chelsea are undefeated in their last 11 matches against Watford in all competitions.

Watford have failed to score in their last 6 away matches in the Premier League, losing all of those games. Chelsea, meanwhile, have scored at least 2 goals in eight of their last nine home matches in the league.

A 2-0 win for Chelsea is the most likely outcome tonight.

KENYA Manu2016 It fell to out of favour Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi, who had come off the bench for Chelsea, to score the only goal of the game at the Hawthorns on Friday, sealing the Premier League title for Antonio Conte’s men after an excellent season of football.

They have now won five matches on the bounce, keeping a clean sheet in the last three and showing exactly why they had what it takes to win the league. There were signs that they might relinquish the top spot to Spurs when Chelsea lost to Crystal Palace and Manchester Untied, but they bounced back from these setbacks perfectly and can now look forward to the FA Cup Final.

I’m not expecting them to slack off on Monday though. Antonio Conte isn’t the sort of manager who will allow his players to take it easy for the remaining two games, so Watford are still the huge underdogs. The chances are they will play with a lot of freedom though, and considering they have won 17 of their last 18 home games and scored 53 goals in the process, The Hornets could be in for a long evening.

The visitors lost 1-0 at Everton on Friday to continue their dismal end to the campaign. They are almost guaranteed to avoid relegation, but the fact they have lost four games on the bounce and failed to score in a month will put Walter Mazzarri under some pressure.

Away from home Watford have lost six in a row and have won just one of their last 14 matches. Four of their last 12 have seen them concede at least three goals, and they’re facing a Chelsea side who have scored three goals or more in a huge 12 of their last 18 home matches.

This phenomenal attacking record should continue with the pressure off The Blues’ back, so odds of 10/11 for Chelsea Over 2.5 Team Goals look fantastic value. I’m backing that alongside a 3-0 correct score predictions at 8/1.
