The champions of England, Chelsea are about to host the surprise package of this year, Watford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Currently, the visitors are one place ahead of the reigning champions following the poor start of the former. Chelsea have already lost few points at home following their defeat to Burnley and Manchester City and settlement against Arsenal. In addition, their recent form following a defeat to Crystal Palace in the last Premier League fixture and draw against Roma in the Champions League have certainly increased the worry for The Blues manager Antonio Conte. With the recent form of Watford, they are expected to throw some serious challenges to the boys from West London. Reportedly, Watford have beaten Arsenal in their last fixture. So, we can expect a tough match between the both.
