Although the London Underground brings Chelsea fans to Watford, Saturday night’s match between Watford Football Club (table position 20, 5 points) and Chelsea Football Club (table position 4, 20 points) is not a London derby. However, there are still some explosives, as Hornets coach Quique Sánchez Flores is already criticized, although the Spaniard only started his second term in Watford at the beginning of September.
Watford vs Chelsea Betting Predictions and Odds
The fans are dissatisfied with the performances, so far, no real coaching effect could be seen. The Hornets are still gracing the top of the league in the world. The chance to regain self-confidence in the League Cup was also missed.
On Tuesday Watford defeated in Goodison Park Everton with former coach Marco Silva 0-2. Nevertheless, Sanchez Flores was satisfied and used the cup mainly to give players from the second row competition minutes.
Frank Lampard’s young wild guard has also suffered a loss in the League Cup. Last Wednesday, the Blues defeated at home Stamford Bridge Manchester United unhappy 1: 2. For Chelsea it was already the third competitive home defeat of the season. In 2018/19, Chelsea lost only twice at home overall.
With an average of 24 years and 166 days Lampard sent the youngest Chelsea starting eleven since October 2012 in a League Cup game. In the league, it is now to make the bankruptcy and to defend the Champions League rank. On Saturday, anything else would be a blues victory in Hertfordshire a big surprise, proving odds between Watford and Chelsea.
Watford – Statistics & Current Form
Watford continues to hold the red lantern. The distance to the saving bank is currently manageable four points, but will increase from week to week, if the Hornets do not start to win their games. So Watford is season-free for 14 league games win (0-6-8). Only between November 1971 and April 1972 remained the Hornets in their own league history longer without success (then 19 games).
This season, the Hertfordshire club won none of the first ten league matches (0-5-5) and scored the least goals of all first division (five). Watford is thus the first Premier League team, which managed to win for the second time none of the first ten games in the top division of the country.
Previously, this was already the case in the 2006/07 season the case – then Watford descended at the end of the season. Never before has Watford been without a win in the first eleven league games of the season. The last Premier League representative to do so was the Queens Park Rangers in 2012.
In six of the ten league games, the Hornets remained entirely without their own goal. On the home form, the Hornets also can not set, because this is not existent. At Vicarage Road fans have not had much to cheer on for nine Premier League games (0-4-5). Should Watford fail to win against Chelsea – which the bookmakers’ odds are likely to – Watford would equal the previous negative league home record.
So far Watford remained only between September and December 2004 ten home games without threes. The will can not be denied to the team. So no other player in the league shot more often opposing housing (24 times) and often on goal (ten times) as Gerard Deulofeu, without scoring a goal.
Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck and Captain Troy Deeney are all injured. After all, Domingos Quina was able to celebrate his comeback in the League Cup after injury.
Best goalscorers in the Premier League:

Expected formation of Watford:
➤ Foster; Cathcart, Dawson, Kabasele; Holebas, Doucoure, Chalobah, Capoue, Janmaat; Pereyra, Deulofeu
➤ Coach: Sánchez Flores

Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
Head, left foot, right foot. Christian Pulisic scored the perfect hat-trick in the away game at Burnley last week, making him the second American to score three goals in a Premier League game after Clint Dempsey (January 2012). At the same time, Pulisic became the youngest hat-trick shooter in Chelsea’s history, outperforming team-mate Tammy Abraham, who did well at the start of the season.
Chelsea were able to win the most recent six away matches across all competition – only between February and April 1989, there were seven away wins at a time. For the first time ever in history, the Blues celebrated four first division league successes with at least three goals each. Only Everton managed once in December 1927 five consecutive appearances with three or more goals and then won the championship.
16 away goals in the first five league games in the stranger are outbid in the Premier League only by Norwich (17, 1993/94) and Man City (20, 2011/12). The other side of the coin is the flood of opposites. In calendar year 2019 alone Watford (34) had to accept more goals in foreign parts than the Blues (30). Only the three children’s children Watford, Southampton and Norwich have also had to concede more goals this season than the current fourth-placed Chelsea (16).
Against a bottom left, the Blues won 16 of the last 20 Premier League powers (four failures). The latest bankruptcy of its kind hit Chelsea in October 2017 at Crystal Palace – then the first victory of the season for the Eagles. Even if a parallel to the still winless Hornets is recognizable, we expect that the Blues lead at half time and will win the game as well.
Accordingly, between Watford and Chelsea, we would follow this prediction and place a tip of “2/2”. Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham scored six goals in his last four Premier League away games (a template) and is currently the most successful league goalscorer in foreign countries. Lampard must give up the injured Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rüdiger. N’Golo Kante, Ross Barkley and Emerson are battered.
Best goalscorers in the Premier League:
🎖 8 goals: Tammy Abraham
🎖 4 goals: Mason Mount
🎖 3 goals: Christian Pulisic
Expected formation of Chelsea:
➤ Arrizabalaga; Alonso, Tomori, Zouma, Azpilicueta; Jorginho, Kovacic; Pulisic, Mount, Willian; Abraham
➤ Coach: Lampard
Last matches of Chelsea:
⚽️ 30.10.2019 – Chelsea Vs. Manchester United 1: 2 (League Cup)
