Chelsea vs Watford - Premier League Preview and Odds

May 05, 2019 14:00pm - Stamford Bridge (London)

Premier League

Following Tottenham Hotspur`s defeat at Bournemouth on Saturday, Chelsea will look to take advantage by moving into third place in the Premier League table. Opponents Watford kick-off in 10th place and will look to build some momentum ahead of their upcoming FA Cup final match against Manchester City.

The Blues have lost just two games in their last 15 in all competitions, both defeats coming in the Premier League against Everton and Liverpool. However, they have won just three of their last eight in the league and failed to win any of their last three.

At Stamford Bridge, Maurizio Sarri`s men are unbeaten in the last eight in the league but were held 2-2 by Burnley in their last home game. A win would put them in pole position to finish third and qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Meanwhile, Watford will look to finish the season as high up the table as possible after a strong campaign which could still yield a trophy. The Hornets will face Manchester City in the FA Cup final on May 18 and could still finish eighth in the league depending on how other results pan out.

Javi Gracia`s men have been one of the surprise packages of the season and should provide a stiff challenge for the Londoners. However, they have yet to take a single point from a top-six team on the road, their best result being a 2-0 win at seventh-ranked Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Betting odds and tips

Chelsea`s home form combined with Watford`s lack of success away to top-six teams makes the home win look the obvious pick here.

However, Watford did manage to find the net away to Tottenham Hotspur and both Manchester clubs and they only failed to find the net twice in their last 11 away games. With that in mind, the Both Teams to Score option should also be considered.

You can back the Home Win with Both Teams to Score at 7/4.
