Struggling Watford face a daunting task as they welcome league leaders Chelsea to Vicarage Road. The hosts sit in 16th position on the log with 13 points from their 13 matches while Chelsea have accrued 30 points from their 13 matches. The home side lost their last match 4-2 away to Leicester. Watford have now lost three of their last four matches and find themselves just 5 points above the relegation zone. They have lost their last two home matches against Chelsea but have never lost three in a row at home to the visitors. Their home form has been poor with just two wins from their six matches with three defeats. In all four of Watford’s victories this season they have scored a minimum of three goals. They are yet to keep a clean sheet in any of their home matches this season.
The Chelsea juggernaut keeps steaming ahead as they lead the chasing pack with 30 points. Their lead has been cut to just one point due to their 1-1 home draw to Manchester United in their last match. They have surprisingly drawn their last two home matches against United and Burnley respectively. The battle for the title is very tight as there is just two points separating them from third place Liverpool so they know victory against Watford is paramount. Chelsea are unbeaten in the league away from home and have the best away record in the league with five wins and a draw. Their defence has been incredible on the road as they have only conceded one goal in six matches.
Chelsea will look to bounce back after a disappointing home draw and this is a great opportunity to pick up three points against a side that they have enjoyed great success against. We are backing Chelsea to win with over 2.5 goals being scored.
