Watford vs Chelsea prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, squad news, h2h results

After the home draws with Burnley and Manchester United, the Blues’ lead atop the Premier League table has been reduced to just one point.

However, Chelsea are the only undefeated team outside the league to have conceded just one goal in six games. In contrast, half of Watford’s home league goals this season came during United’s recent 4-1 hammering.

Defense has also been a big problem for Claudio Ranieri’s side and Sunday’s 4-2 loss to Leicester has left 23 Premier League games without a clean sheet – a streak dating back to February 2020.

Chelsea will be hoping to extend their record of seven wins in their last eight league games against the Hornets, in which they have scored 21 goals.

Watford vs Chelsea team news

N’Golo Kante missed the draw with Manchester United due to a knee injury and is a big doubt for this game.

Mateo Kovacic (thigh) and Ben Chilwell (knee) are absent for Chelsea, and Tuchel could look to Romelu Lukaku for a first start as he injured his ankle more than a month ago.

Watford is grappling with a long list of absentees including Peter Etebo (thigh), Ken Sema (knee), Ben Foster (groin), Ismaila Sarr (knee), Francisco Sierralta (thigh) and Juraj Kucka (knee). Emmanuel Dennis and Adam Masina fight against blows.

Watford vs Chelsea prediction

Chelsea should be able to regain their rhythm on the road and take advantage of Watford’s openness at the back to secure a comfortable victory.
