Chelsea play terrible this season. They are standing at the 15th position and for them this season is finished, because they don’t have any chance to win the title, despite the fact that they were the main candidate for the title before the season started. There are some optimistic thoughts that Chelsea still have a chance to reach the place which leads in the UEFA Champions League. 11 points difference for the 4th position is reachable but they have to improve their performance. José Mourinho left the team and Chelsea have already started to play better, beating Sunderland 3-1 in last week. Guus Hiddink has been appointed as a new Chelsea manager and he will be the solution for the club until the end of the season. Interesting fact is that he want to Didier Drogba to be his new assistant. The victory over Sunderland were their first after one month in Premier League and everyone in Chelsea expect better days for club.

Watford promoted in Premier League last season and their main goal is to avoid relegation, but they are playing very good this season and even have a chance to reach the place which leads in the UEFA Europa League next season. They are in the great form with 4 consecutive wins in Premier League, while in the last three matches they didn’t conceded a single goal. Their top scorer Ighalo exploded this season and scored 12 goals so far. He and Deeney (5 goals) scored together 17 of 21 goals for Watford. Visitors have one of the best defences in Premier League, while on the other side their attack is very solid, so they hope that can make positive result in London.

Chelsea vs Watford Prediction

Chelsea have a new manager and they will do their best to win this game. Watford have very decent squad which could be very dangerous for home side. Home side is a favorite on the paper to take three points, but I expect an interesting match between Chelsea and Watford and at least three goals.
