Match Preview

Chelsea host Watford on the back of an unbeaten run of eight Premier League (PL) home games (W5, D3). The Blues’ last four wins in that sequence have also been accompanied by a clean sheet, with Maurizio Sarri’s men winning both halves in three of that quartet.
However, it’s clear that Chelsea will do well to avoid conceding first. Significantly, the ‘Blues’ have recovered just two points (out of a possible nine) from the last three occasions they have conceded first in a PL match on home turf.
For Watford, this match is a fourth PL road trip in five to see them face a top-six club. While all of their last three trips to such ‘elite’ grounds have ended in defeat, only one (the least recent) saw the ‘Hornets’ lose both halves.
Overall, the Hertfordshire club have been at their strongest in the final half-hour (plus stoppage-time) of PL road trips lately. That is the time zone in which seven of their last eight league goals on hostile turf have arrived.
Players to watch: Starting with his last-second equaliser v Wolves on March 10, Eden Hazard has since scored in the 90th minute (plus stoppage-time) of every other home PL game.
Watford striker Andre Gray has been an equalising goalscorer (in the second half) on the last two occasions that his team has gone behind in a PL match.
Stat attack: Each of Chelsea’s last 15 PL games have produced over 1.5 total match goals.
A majority (five) of the last seven in that sequence have seen Chelsea score the second goal of the match in total.
Watford have lost the first half in three of their last four PL matches, for a record of: D1, L2.
Three of the last four H2H encounters have seen both teams score in the first half en-route to a Chelsea victory.
