Newly-crowned champions Chelsea welcome Watford to Stamford Bridge on Monday in what should be a great atmosphere. Although there is little to play for, the home side will be keen to put on a show for their supporters and prove that they are worthy winners of the Premier League. They will be confident of recording another three points as their opponents have shown little in recent weeks and are already on the beach after reaching the 40-point mark. That said, the Blues may have been celebrating hard over the weekend and they may not be at peak fitness for the match on Monday.
It has been an incredible first season in charge for Antonio Conte as he has reformed Chelsea from an underachieving side to champions of England once again. Despite the talent at the club, this wasn’t an easy job for the Italian as he had to recreate a winning mentality and rebuild the confidence of many players. The change to a 3-4-3 formation was the pivotal moment of the season and the Blues haven’t looked back since. Before the season started, the media were focused on Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, but it will be Conte who finishes the season top of the pile. For that, he deserves a lot of credit.
Watford have done well to maintain their Premier League status for another season, but they haven’t shown anything to suggest they are progressing as a club. They seem happy to just keep their heads above water and there are no signs of ambition to push on to greater things. Walter Mazzarri is a well-respected manager, but he has allowed standard to slip after reaching 40 points and his position could be under threat once the season ends. Five losses from their last six matches suggest that they won’t provide much of a threat to this Chelsea side.
Chelsea haven’t lost to Watford since 1999 and that will give the Blues confidence ahead of this one. Their earlier meeting this season ended in a 2-1 win for the Blues, but they didn’t have it all their own way. Etienne Capoue scored the opening goal of the game to give his side a lead before late goals from Diego Costa and Michy Batshuayi gave Chelsea the win.
With a wonderful season almost coming to an end, Chelsea can afford to sit back, give some rest to their regular 11, and have chance of some squad rotation. Italian manager Antonio Conte has been a total revelation this season. With his passion, careful approach in front of media, and a genius tactical mind, he has managed to mastermind Chelsea’s performances from mid-table finish to Champions, as they were two years ago. With their strong defensive shape and rapid attacks, Chelsea has grabbed maximum points from most of the matches this season.
With 36 matches played so far, the Blues have managed to pick up 87 points, and are on course to cross the 90 points mark. 45 of those points have come at home, showing their formidable form at Stamford Bridge. Their current league record is 5-0-1, with wins in their last 6 league matches. Two weeks ago, Chelsea triumphed over Middlesbrough with 3:0 at home to relegate them, which was followed by an extremely tough game away at West Brom last Friday. The Blues were incapable of breaking through the extremely well set Baggies defensive line, until rarely used substitute Michy Batshuayi scored an 82nd minute winner to seal their status as the English Premier league winners.
Even though the Hornets have managed to ensure survival in the English Premier league for the next season, it has been a poor season for them. After finishing a decent 13th position after their return to the English Premier league last season, the fans would have been hoping for a better finish. However, poor form of players who had been shining last season meant that the Hornets just about scrapped their way to survival. As the season comes to a close, Watford will have a chance to finish as high as 11th, due to the negligible gap between teams right above them, if all the results go in their favor. However, an away match against the league winners Chelsea isn’t really the best thing they could have hoped for.
Sitting in the 16th position, just two places above relegation spots, Watford have accrued 40 points this season. 28 of those points have come at home, clearly indicating towards a weaker away form when compared to results at the Vicarage Road Stadium. The Hornets are currently in a horrible run of form. Their current league record reads 1-0-5, and they are on a four match losing streak. Their last match was an away 1:0 loss to Everton, before which they were thrashed by last year’s champions Leicester City by 3:0 at the King Power Stadium. The nature of their poor season is made clearer after the fact that they have been defeated by scores of 0:1 and 0:2 five times each this season.
CHELSEA FC vs. WATFORD FC MATCH PREDICTION
It is easy to sense a feeling of relaxation and maybe, complacency from the league leaders, as they now can sit back and enjoy as they have been confirmed as the English Premier league winners.
The Blues should be able to win this one with ease, but my bet would be to go with the over 3.5 goals as this game has no significant importance to either team. A possibility of both teams scoring at least one goal is very high, so I will go with that as well!!!
MY PICK: Over 3.5 goals
