Chelsea v Watford Team News

Watford are this season’s surprise package and currently occupy 4th place, having lost only 1 game so far this term against an in-form Manchester City side (6-0). Watford are 2 points above defending champions Chelsea after 8 games (W4, D3, L1).

In the 4 PL meetings since Watford's most recent promotion in 2015 there has been an average of 5.75 yellow cards, but only 1 red card has been shown.

This is the 1st ever meeting between Antonio Conte and Marco Silva. Both teams like to leave it late; from 75 minutes onwards, Chelsea have scored 4 and conceded 1 (Batshuayi own goal) so far. Watford are similarly strong late in games, 5 scored and 2 conceded (both away at Manchester City).

Chelsea have lost 2 league games in a row, the first time this has happened under Antonio Conte. It is only the 2nd time that they have gone 2 games in a row without a win.
