Chelsea vs Watford
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 5th May 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
We are approaching one of the best finishes to a Premier League season, this May. On one hand we have the title race between Liverpool and Manchester City, while just below, we see remaining four of the six traditional powerhouses battling for the two Champions League spots that’d be available, and then finally, the next four most powerful teams after the ‘Six’ battling for the seventh and final European spot.
Here, we have Chelsea, currently in the fourth position, and trying to maintain or better their current standing, going against Watford, vying to overcome a deficit of four points. Since the teams above them – Leicester and Wolves have extremely tough games in the final two match-days, there’s hope for Watford.
Chelsea vs Watford Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last five games in a row had goals from both teams.
- Chelsea won four of the last five fixtures.
- 11 of the last 12 wins went to Chelsea.
- The last three games at this stadium had goals at either end of the pitch.
Chelsea vs Watford Prediction
Chelsea has performed fantastically well against this team for quite so long. They won four of the last five h2h ties and recorded 11 of the last 12 wins. At this venue, the team holds a 100% unbeaten record, and if not for a 2-2 draw four years back, the record would have been a 100% winning one.
With their Champions League future hanging in the balance, count on the Blues to win this tie. It helps that the team was unbeaten in 24 of their last 26 home ties – losing just twice against previous Premier League Champions. Watford, meanwhile, lost three of their last four away ties.
But do keep in mind that Chelsea had a mid-week Europa League game on the road, and the next Friday, they have to take part in the second leg. The players are not fresh, and on top of that, the last five h2h fixtures on the trot, and the last three at this venue had goals from both teams. Finally, Watford is desperate to make it to Europe, and they will give their best on the pitch this weekend. There’ll be goals from both teams in all probability.
