Watford almost always gives us a tough game, last season we were defeated with 10 men after Bakayoko got a double booking in a space of five minutes. Expect us to bounce back after losing to Leicester but it will be very difficult.

Got it down as a draw in my accumulator. Watford are seriously no mugs.

That would be a problem considering we have Palace away next, one more game we won't win

Just need to finish our chances. Willian, Pedro, and Hazard all should of had goals last weekend.

Yeah i don't think we aren't playing well, but in every game we score and keep missing chances. It always comes back to haunt us.

I'll tell you one thing, Willian and Alonso must turn into Ronaldinho and Roberto Carlos in training, because I for the life of me have no idea why Odoi or Emerson don't get the nod.

They have some shit on Sarri, on his family i don't see any other reason for them starting.

More like on the club. 60 million turned down for the fraud and Alonso is now starting his 3rd straight season for us when he should of been dropped to the bench his 2nd.

Certain players just can't start, those two in the front. Sarri is making himself no favours and it is not helping the team. Both can be decent as subs or in cup games, but to be starters in big games no way. At times Willian looks like our worst player by far.

Rumors Emerson will start tonight and Willian dropped back to the bench for Giroud.

That is fine by me, also i hope Kovačić,Jorginho and Kante all start they are zero threat towards goal. I'd have Ross or Ruben start in one of the positions.

The same exact lineup. Going to be a long game. 

Need to captalise on this now Arsenal dropping points + them away at Liverpool this weekend.

Azpilicueta is a painfully average footballer. 

No wonder Spain hardly ever use him.

Chelsea are a hard watch when they get into the final third. Surely a striker of some sort in January is nailed on. Hazard, despite that well taken goal, isn't suited to the false nine role. It's bad when I'm even sort of thinking Morata in there would be beneficial.

Great technique from Pereyra, 1-1 already.

Watford equalise! Eventful stoppage time at the end of the first half. Naive from Chelsea not to see it out.

Scholes-esque, that, from Pereyra. 

Reminds me of how Utd scored against Bradford or Villa (?) a while back. Good technique.

1-1 at the break. 

Thought we've played some good stuff minus the individual errors, however it is the same story once we get into the 3rd. 

I'd like to see Sarri be more proactive rather than reactive now. Bring on Giroud for Willian.

All on Luiz that one... turned away from the shot rather than facing it and getting the block in... can't be a chicken shit when defending

Rudiger's donkey header led to Watford even getting the corner 

 

Like I said, we've played well. Just individual errors costing us and our typical mindless bollocks once we get in the opposition third.

Hazard only scoring 9 of his 100 goals from outside the box so far is very surprising. I guess the one's 'inside the box' are just inside...?

How we come out the second half will be very much on Sarri. 

Will he look to make things happen, or will he wait for things to happen?

He's never been renowned for being a long shot specialist has he? Not a particularly icusly surprising stat.

Not necessarily a specialist, but just thought more than 9 of the goals had come from outside the box.
