Chelsea vs Watford Tips 


Chelsea have limped towards a top-three berth this season after losing a huge amount of ground on both Manchester City and Liverpool at the top. With their title challenge over some time ago, Chelsea will have the settle for a trophyless season.

Watford have been awful this year and are deservedly heading back to the Championship next season. Just six wins in 37 matches means they are 12 points short of safety with just one game left to play. 

  • The Blues have won 20 of their 37 games at the time of writing (Premier League)
  • Chelsea are three points clear of Tottenham in fourth (Premier League)
  • Watford have only won six games all season (Premier League)
  • The away side have not won in their last eight (L7, D1) (Premier League) 

Head to Head 


Watford have not beaten Chelsea in any of their last five attempts. The last two times the teams have played at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have come out 3-0 winners.

Chelsea Form 


Chelsea have won just one of their last five matches in what has been a tough run for the side. Following their 1-1 draw with Leicester at home in their penultimate match of the season, Chelsea once again showed that they are not in the greatest of form right now. 

Chelsea's inconsistency has seen what was an almost definite place in the Champions League come under threat as both Arsenal and Tottenham flew up the table. While Arsenal losing to Spurs means the Blues were at least assured of a top-four spot, they will have wanted to have secured third a long time ago.

Ben Chilwell (fitness) is out of this one. 

Watford Form 


Watford have been abject this season. Their inability to win games means they will be plying their trade in the Championship next season as they look to rebuild what has become a very poor squad. 

While Watford are definitely going down this season, they will be playing for pride in their final match as they will want to avoid going down at the foot of the table. Norwich are only a point behind them meaning a win would see Watford assured of 19th, at least avoiding the total ignominy of finishing bottom.

Watford are likely without Nicolas N'Koulou (hamstring).

Verdict

Chelsea will target this as the perfect way to round off what has been a disappointing season for them. Without a trophy and battling for third-place is not the way they would have wanted their campaign to end, but a big win over Watford and the promise of Champions League football next season is a fairly good outcome for the side. We are expecting Chelsea to win this one comfortably.
