Chelsea vs Watford 21/10/2017
It is rare to see Watford above Chelsea heading into a EPL fixture. The Hornets are buzzing following last Sunday’s thrilling comeback 2-1 win over Arsenal and sit in fourth.
Chelsea are just a place behind and they are reeling from losing three of their first eight matches, one of which included a humiliating 2-1 reverse to winless and scoreless Crystal Palace last week. No team has ever lost this many at this stage and go on to win the EPL title.
Watford are great travelers, having clinched 10 points from a possible 12 away from home this season. They will be raring to go against the Blues, who they have not won against at Stamford Bridge since 1986.
N’Golo Kante, Victor Moses and Danny Drinkwater continue to miss out for Chelsea, while Watford will be without veteran defender Younes Kaboul and Sebastian Prodl.
