Watford – Chelsea , football picks for the derby.
Chelsea wins Watford in a match of the 26th round of the Premier League. The Victory Road match is on Monday as Londoners will try to return to the winning streak after defeating Bournemouth with 0:3 in the last round.
Chelsea’s team suffered a shocking loss of 0:3 from Bournemouth on Wednesday and thus recorded their fifth defeat in the season. Londoners were overtaken by Liverpool, with both teams having 50 points, but Chelsea is fourth because of a worse goal difference. Fifth Tottenham is just two points behind Chelsea, so Antonio Conte’s graduates can not afford a wrong step on Watford’s pitch.
The hosts are without a win in five consecutive Premier League games as they take 11th place with 27 points in their assets. Watford has seven wins, six draws and twelve losses this season, scoring 33 goals and 44. In the second half of the standings, the “hurricanes” have the best assault, but they are lagging behind this score on almost all of Top 10. Watford is performing less well in this season and will have to show in the Chelsea match that they have strengthened their defense after not allowing a shot in the match against Stoke in the weekend ended 0-0.
Watford remains with a lot of injured players as at least six major players are out of the box. Chelsea guests will not be able to rely on David Louise and Andreas Christensen, while Alvaro Morata is in question for the match. Almost surely Olivier Giroud will make his debut for the “blue” and lead the Chelsea attack, with Eden Azar going behind him.
The Belgian leads the team’s attack against Bournemouth, but Antonio Conte’s scheme did not work and Chelsea failed to score a shot. Now fans of the team hope that the new addition of Giroud will lead the team to the goals and therefore to victories, so that the team can keep its place in the Top 4.
