ZOUMA DENIES GRAY A EQUALISER!

Chelsea fans thoughts at half-time
Reminder of Abraham's goal
HALF-TIME
HT- Watford 0-1 Chelsea

Chelsea came out of the blocks in a quick manner and managed to go 1-0 up in the 5th minute after Abraham chipped Foster from a lovely through ball by Jorginho.

 

The Blues had chances to add to the lead, but Foster has managed to keep Watford in the game here.

 

The Hornets themselves have had their moments, but Chelsea have nullified their attacking threats so far.

 

All to play for still in the second half. (0-1) #WATCHE

Mount smashes the bar!
42' SO CLOSE TO BEING 2-0!

 

Mount fires an effort from way outside the box which Foster tips onto the bar!

 

 Ben Foster really is keeping Watford in this game here!

 

So close for Mount! Still 0-1 Chelsea though.

 

#WATCHE

Deulofeu drives effort just wide!
38' NEARLY 1-1! From a Watford corner, the ball finds Deulofeu in the box. He cuts in and fires an effort just wide of Kepa's goal.

 

From the replay it looks like Gray was close to applying a finishing touch as the Spaniards effort flashed across the goal.

 

Very promising spell for Watford as the first half comes to a close.

 

(0-1) #WATCHE

Willian fires tame effort at Foster
30' Chelsea break down the other end, and the ball ends up at Willian who cuts in but fires a very tame shot straight at Foster.

 

Should have done much better there. (0-1) #WATCHE

ZOUMA MAKES VITAL INTERCEPTION
26' WATFORD NEARLY IN HERE!

 

Zouma and Tomori combine well to deny Pererya getting one-on-one with Kepa.

 

This is better though from Watford. Starting to get more of a foothold in this game! 

 

(0-1) #WATCHE

CATHCART CAN'T CONTINUE
19' Catchcart is replaced by Mariappa after the captain could not run his injury off! 

 

(0-1) #WATCHE

WONDERFUL SAVE BY FOSTER TO DENY ABRAHAM A SECOND
17' TWO AMAZING SAVES!

 

The ball breaks to Tammy Abraham in the box, but his effort is superbly saved by Foster and the ball goes out for a corner.

 

From the corner, Pulisic flicks on his header but Foster somehow claws his effort out of the goal before the ball crosses the line!

 

AMAZING SCENES HERE! (0-1) #WATCHE

Watford's first chance
15' HALF-CHANCE!

A scramble in Chelsea's box leads to the ball falling to Pererya who takes his effort first time on the turn, but fails to make significant contact as Kepa makes an easy save.

 

Promising from Watford (0-1) #WATCHE

He will give it another go by the looks of it
13' Cathcart will try and run his knock off here... (0-1) #WATCHE
Worry for Watford
11' Craig Cathcart is down for the Hornets! 

 

Looks like the Captain will not be able to continue. Mariappa will come on to replace the defender.

 

(0-1) #WATCHE

Tammy has seven goals on the road
STAT- Tammy Abraham has now scored SEVEN goals in away matches so far for Chelsea in the Premier League.

 

(0-1) #WATCHE

That assist from Jorginho was arguably pass of the season so far!

 

Amazing! (0-1) #WATCHE

GOAAL ABRAHAM
4' GOOOALLL 1-0 CHELSEA!

 

Jorginho curls a wonderful pass past the Watford defence to Abraham who chips an onrushing Foster to give the Blues an early lead here.

 

1-0 Chelsea!! WHAT A START!! (0-1) #WATCHE

1' Jorginho tries an early through ball to Pulisic, but Foster read the situation well. (0-0) #WATCHE

Memorable Match: Watford 4-1 Chelsea
Quique Sanchez Flores on Chelsea
“I have analysed this team and they don't change their philosophy too much.

 

 “They like to run, to play counter-attack and to recuperate the space when they concede some. They have good players in their side, they try to play well and they have a mix of qualities. Frank [Lampard] is a clever guy and he knows perfectly the club.

 

Little by little, Chelsea is coming up to the position they deserve. We will try to play the way we want. We want to work really, really hard.”

Lampard's thoughts ahead of the game
Chelsea's player to watch out for: Christian Pulisic
After his hat-trick in Chelsea's  last Premier League game against Burnley, this is a chance for the American International to kick on with his Chelsea career. 

 

Pulisic could have a field day against Watford's defence if they don't perform in a way that will subdue Chelsea's attacking force.

Watford's player to watch out for: Gerard Deulofeu
 

No one has really stood out for Watford so far this season.

Defensively Kabasele has been impressive for the Hornets.

Arguably the most impressive attacking players for the Hornets have been the likes of Deulofeu, Doucoure and Hughes.

 

But this man could cause Chelsea's leaky defence quite a few problems. He had a wonderful game against Arsenal and was the Hornets stand out player in their 8-0 loss to Manchester City.

 

He tends to turn up against the big sides, so Chelsea will need to nullify him out of the game if they want to stop Watford springing an upset on them.

4th vs 20th in the table
On paper, this is an away banker. But Chelsea are so unpredictable this season so don't rule out the Blues dropping points in this encounter.

 

The Hornets have only gained five points from their first ten Premier League games. They still haven't won a Premier League game yet! Could Saturday be the first one?

 

For Lampard's Blues, their seven consecutive win streak in all competitions came to an abrupt end in midweek, as Manchester United beat the Blues 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in the Carabao Cup Round of 16.

 

Despite their impressive coming to an end, Lampard's men are still on a run in the League of being four unbeaten. The West-London clubs last loss came on the 22nd of September when they lost 2-1 at home to Liverpool.

 

A worrying sign for Watford is how potent Chelsea's away form has been recently. The Blues are scoring goals for fun on the road. In the last two away games, the Blues have scored eight goals!

 

Betting Odds: Draw most likely result?
