Watford vs Chelsea Vicarage Road
Watford Vicarage Road

Chelsea have made a fine start to the 2019-20 Premier League campaign having lost just two games so far. And next up they on Watford away from home.

The Hornets are currently sitting at the bottom of the league table with five points but they have made significant improvements under their new boss as they have not tasted defeat in their last three matches.

The Blues, on the other hand, have picked up four wins on the trot in the league but in midweek they did go down to Manchester United in the Premier League.

While Watford did manage to hold Spurs to a 1-1 draw a few weeks back but Lampard’s men have been in fine form meaning the Blues should walk away from Vicarage Road with all three points.
