Watford – Chelsea : Preview & Prediction

A new date of the Premier concludes and in this occasion, they will close Watford and Chelsea this Monday night. A priori, the “Blue” painting starts as a favorite due to its greater individual and collective hierarchy. Because of this and knowing that the premises are not reliable in their stadium, we believe that Conte’s squad can add 3 points or at least win 1 half of the match.


If we talk about this team we can say that it is irregular and unreliable despite having good players in its squad. These days, it has 27 units in total, adding only 2 of the last 15. A detail to consider is that it is relatively close to the descent, being able to commit to that issue. His last league presentation was against Stoke (draw 0-0). As extra data you should know that there are 8 casualties for this duel and two in doubt (Gomes and Kaboul).

Playing in their stadium, the local squad has added negative results, lacking regularity before their people. It is enough to know that he has only won 3 games in 12 games to corroborate this statement. From there, in more, recorded 4 draws and 5 defeats, reaching to score 16 goals and give 25 on his fence. Their last home results have been the following: Draw 1-1 with Tottenham, fall 1-4 against Huddersfield, victory 2-1 against Leicester, defeat 1-2 against Swansea and draw 2-2 against Southampton.

Chelsea news

The present of Chelsea is quite irregular, receiving criticism Conte technician for how the team plays and how he manages the team regarding the starting lineups. Last Wednesday he lost 0-3 against Bournemouth in a surprising way, staying with 50 points in total. The goal of the team is to recover quickly from this bad result and keep fighting to qualify for the next Champions League. Frenchman Giroud has arrived as a reinforcement for the front (he doubts he is not in optimum physical condition). Morata, David Luiz and Willian will be awaited until the end.

Acting as a visitor, the Antonio Conte box has reaped diverse but generally acceptable results (7 wins, 3 parities and 2 losses, getting to specify 24 goals in favor and receive 9 in his goal). His last departures have been the following: Draw 0-0 with Everton, equality 2-2 against Arsenal and victory 0-4 against Brighton.


The last time they played both teams was at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea won 4-2. In the Watford field, the “Blues” obtained a tie and a victory in their last 2 visits (0-0 in February 2016 and win 1-2 in August 2016).

Forecast Watford vs Chelsea

In the previous one, Chelsea leaves as favorite due to its greater collective and individual hierarchy, being feasible that it has situations even when it does not dominate the process of game. He is expected to manage the times thanks to his collective and somewhat regulatory style. His goal is to repeat what he did in his last outing when he crushed Brighton and proved to be an effective midfield forward (0-4). Another detail by which we believe that the “Blues” will be the winners of the game is linked to the irregularity of the premises. It is enough to know that it is the worst set of this competition to corroborate this affirmation (3 wins in 12 presentations). Considering these details, we believe that the Conte guys can win 0-1, 0-2 or 1-2 after the final whistle. Or in any case, one half if the procedure is more complicated than expected.
