Watford will play host to Chelsea in the last game of the round in the English Premier League. Both teams will be desperate to get wins after disappointing performances by them in their previous games.
Chelsea had a horrible transfer window and that is something that has not made the fans happy. Giroud was the only notable addition to the side and it looks like Conte’s attitude towards Diego Costa is likely to cost the club big. Playing against Watford will be a chance for Chelsea to get a much-needed win since they will be under pressure to stay in the top 4 with Arsenal looking dangerous thanks to their new signings.
On the other side of the coin, Watford will not be happy with how the season is turning out. This is a side that started this campaign very well but the team has fallen away and they need to be careful to ensure that they don’t end up in a relegation battle. Last week the Hornets failed to beat a struggling Stoke City side and they will need to improve drastically if they wish to get anything out of this game against Chelsea.
With all that in mind, I am going to predict that Chelsea will win this game. That being said, I am not suggesting betting on the Blues since we are not getting the right price and it is not worth it. The best bet is the under 2.5 goals since Watford have been having low scoring games while Chelsea also lacks goals.
