Chelsea vs. Watford, Premier League: Half-time report

Watford have come to play today, if by play we mean kick and foul and push and pull anything that moves in a blue shirt. Despite that, Chelsea have enjoyed plenty of quality possession and have created several good chances. Watford may be big and strong and mean, but we’re not so bad ourselves and the backups (plus Hazard and Kante and Azpilicueta) are certainly up for this.

Watford do have a goal but it was purely of our own doing, with John Terry heading backwards under pressure from his own teammate instead of making the easy clearance. No worries however; Terry had staked Chelsea into the lead just 90 seconds before (of course he scored on what could very well be his final start for the club) and then Azpilicueta restored the lead with a rare goal of his own.

On the opposite wing, Kenedy and Ake have been playing well, while Friday night’s hero Michy Batshuayi has been okay leading the line. Probably would be helpful for him and the team if the referee called a few more fouls on Prodl.

More of the same in second 45 should be more than enough to get the job done and equal the Premier League record for most wins in a season with 29.
