Chelsea take on Watford this weekend in the English Premier League and Antonio Conte will be under a fair bit of pressure to bring his teams’ title defense back on track after a set of disappointing results over the past two game weeks.
Before the International Break Chelsea suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Manchester City where they were outplayed and outclassed by Guardiola’s men. And after the break, Chelsea suffered another defeat, this time at the hands of Crystal Palace who were and still are at the bottom of the table. The Blues lost the game quite unexpectedly and after the defeat, a few alarm bells have started ringing at Stamford Bridge. And most of the concerns are regarding the thin squad that Antonio Conte has at his disposal.
This coming weekend though, Chelsea will face a much tougher opponent as compared to Palace. The Blues host Marco Silva’s Watford this Saturday at Stamford Bridge. The Hornets are in superb form and they are currently fourth on the league table, two points above Chelsea. They are unbeaten in three of their last matches – their last defeat coming at the hands of Manchester City too.
The match will kick off at 12:30 BST on Saturday and a full guide of all the Chelsea matches is available on the bet365 Live Streaming Schedule. You can visit online here and check the latest betting tips and odds of Chelsea wins etc.
The Hornets will come into this match on the back of a fantastic win against Arsenal and Chelsea are sure to face some tough competition on Saturday. But a big relief for Conte will be the fact that Alvaro Morata will be available for selection – thus solving the striker crisis.
