Watford will welcome Chelsea to Vicarage Road for a matchday 14 fixture in England Premier League. The last meeting on 4th July 2020 ended in a Chelsea 3-0 win. Both sides have met eleven times in the most recent seasons. Watford has won 1 match, and Chelsea triumphed in 8. Recent outings average 3.64 goals, while both teams score 64% of the time.

Watford's latest fixture against Leicester City ended in an away 4-2 loss. I expected more from The Golden Boys. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Watford scored in both halves in the 30th and 61st minute.

Chelsea's recent game against Manchester United ended in a home 1-1 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn't enough to win three points. Chelsea deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 69th minute.

So far, The 'Orns plays better on the road than at home. They win 0.78 points per away game on average compared to 0.70 points at home. Although Watford is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.

Chelsea has picked up 7 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Chelsea has collected 2.09 points on average per away game, compared to 1.82 at home.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. The Golden Boys has won just 20% of home games. On average they score 1.10 goals and concede 2.20 per game. Chelsea is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Watford wins on average 0.70 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Chelsea. My prediction is Chelsea to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.83 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Watford's home and Chelsea's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
