📏 Form Guide

Chelsea WWWWWL

Chelsea will be hoping to bounce back here after a 3-2 Premier League loss in their previous game against West Ham United.

In that match, Chelsea managed 71% possession and 16 shots at goal with 6 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Chelsea was Willian (42', 72'). On the other side, West Ham United had 10 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. Tomáš Souček (45'), Michail Antonio (51') and Andriy Yarmolenko (90') scored for West Ham United.

Chelsea haven’t had any problems with scoring, netting every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.

They have managed to rack up 13 during that time while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 5. While that may be of interest, time will tell if the trend shall be sustained in this next game or not.

Their prior results show that Chelsea:

  • are unbeaten in the league by Watford in their last 3 matches.
  • are undefeated in their previous 3 home league matches.

Watford LWLDLL

Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Southampton in Premier League competition, Watford will be hoping to turn things around here.

Southampton got 11 shots on goal with 7 on target. Danny Ings (16', 70'), Jan Bednarek (79' Own goal) and James Ward-Prowse (82') scored for Southampton.

The numbers tell their own story, and Watford have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 9 goals in total. Defensively, The Hornets can certainly do much better. We will have to see whether or not that trend will end up being continued on in this game.

Going into this encounter, Watford haven’t won away from home in the past 5 matches in the league.

👥 Head to head

Inspecting their most recent head to head meetings going back to 15/05/2017 shows us that Chelsea have won 5 of these games & Watford 1, with the number of drawn results being 0.

Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 27 in all which averages out at 4.5 goals per meeting.

The previous league meeting between these sides was Premier League match day 11 on 02/11/2019 when it finished Watford 1-2 Chelsea.

In that game, Watford had 33% possession and 12 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. The scorer was Gerard Deulofeu (80').

Chelsea had 16 attempts at goal with 10 of them on target. Tammy Abraham (5') and Christian Pulisic (55') scored.

The match was refereed by Anthony Taylor.

🗞️ Team News: Chelsea

Abdul Rahman Baba (Knee Injury), Ethan Ampadu (Back trouble) and Charly Musonda Jr. (Knee Surgery) won’t be available for Chelsea gaffer Frank Lampard.

It seems likely that The Blues may well use a 4-3-3 system for this one, beginning the first half with Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcos Alonso, Antonio Rüdiger, Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta, Mason Mount, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud and Willian.

ℹ️ Team News: Watford

Watford boss Nigel Pearson has a number of players out of action. Daryl Janmaat (Knee Injury) and Gerard Deulofeu (Ruptured cruciate ligament) miss out here.

We believe The Hornets seem most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 lineup with a starting lineup of Ben Foster, Kiko Femenia, Craig Cathcart, Craig Dawson, Adam Masina, Will Hughes, Etienne Capoue, Ismaïla Sarr, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Roberto Pereyra and Troy Deeney.

💡 Prediction

When taking all factors into account, Chelsea will most probably get a couple of goals in this one when they come up against Watford, who may well struggle getting goals.

We can therefore see a fairly comfortable 2-0 win for Chelsea at full-time.
