Chelsea vs Watford Predictions

Chelsea have underwhelmed against the league’s so-called weaker sides.

Chelsea remain fourth, one point behind Leicester. Watford are one point clear of the relegation zone in 17th.

Chelsea have often failed to break down sides who sit deep as was the case against West Ham. Each of their goals came from set-pieces won by Christian Pulsic and he is likely to hold to the key for Chelsea once again.

Ismaila Sarr’s pace and directness could hurt Chelsea on the counter so both teams to score might be a good bet here, along with a 1-1 draw for a correct score prediction.

 

Chelsea Form

Chelsea had hit form at the perfect time prior to their 3-2 defeat to West Ham. That loss adds to Chelsea’s growing list of poor results against bottom-half sides. It is now six defeats and two draws from 17 fixtures against the bottom ten.

Each of their last six league games have featured over 2.5 goals, with only three sides having outscored Chelsea this season.

Defensively Chelsea have been far more suspect, managing to keep just one clean sheet in their last ten league games.

Team News

Fikayo Tomori is an injury doubt whilst Calum Hudson-Odoi us not match-ready.

 

Watford Form

Watford’s form has tailed off since Nigel Pearson first took the helm at Vicarage Road. Watford are just one point clear of the relegation zone with six left to play. Six points from their last ten is concerning and needs to improve quickly.

Watford’s defence has performed poorly in recent matches with just one clean sheet from their previous nine league fixtures. Their 3-1 loss to Southampton last time out is particularly disappointing.

Watford lost 2-1 in their reverse fixture with Chelsea back in November. Gerard Deulofeu scored a late penalty in that game.

Team News

Deulofeu remains out injured, as is Daryl Janmaat.
