Chelsea vs Watford Prediction & Betting tips
With the recent home win over Manchester City, Chelsea decided the championship – not for the first time. The blues already played this role in 2014 and 2016. If you add the two titles won in 2015 and 2017, you can see that the Londoners were indirectly or directly involved in five of the seven most recent title decisions.
In terms of their own goal of the season, the qualification for the Champions League, however, there was a setback this week: The Lampard team had to defeat West Ham in the London derby with 2: 3.
An undeserved defeat, especially since the previous services were stable after the restart. For the duel at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Watford, the tip aims at a home win and at least two goals from the home side.
For the pensioners, the season break was positive from a personal point of view: the previous top scorer Tammy Abraham was able to recover and is now available again. Last weekend’s victory in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup against the foxes from Leicester was enough for the full distance on the grass.
Christian Pulisic is also on board again. The offensive midfielder scored immediately on his comeback in the first game after the restart. In addition, the American and ex-BVB player also scored a goal in the following 2-1 home win against Manchester City.
With the return of the two important offensive players, Chelsea is now significantly wider in the game forward. In view of the very tight schedule in these weeks, this is a great advantage. Watford, in particular, will fear that the two players will re-emerge – both Abraham and Pulisic met in the first half of this pairing.
Coach Nigel Pearson took office last December and is the third coach this season. However, with a win rate of 27.8 percent, he was unable to provide any decisive positive impetus. The eleventh of the previous year is only one point away from the relegation zone.
The kickers from Vicarage Road have an offensive problem above all. With 29 goals this season, Watford is the most harmless storm after Bournemouth and Crystal Palace. The goal scoring was recently completely stopped abroad: For three guest appearances, the opponents have been given a clean sheet.
In view of these values, the odds for a further “zero” in favor of the home side are also of interest in the Chelsea-Watford encounter.
One reason for the currently even more pronounced Tormisere is the injury to Gerard Deulofeu. The Spaniard is extremely important for Watford’s offensive game: no other player hits the Hornets anymore. If you add your own goals, you can see that the 26-year-old was involved in almost a third of all the club’s goals. Without Deulofeu in the squad, the guests consequently did not win a league game and instead lost three times and made a draw.
