Chelsea Vs Watford EPL Live Stream Live Match

The match between Chelsea vs Watford will kick off soon.

However, Chelsea is in third place in the Premier League table heading into their last Premier League match against Watford afternoon.

Meanwhile, Watford will clinch 19th place with a win at Stamford Bridge, while a Norwich City victory over Tottenham Hotspur will be required to lift them out of second place.

Chelsea has had a dismal Premier League season by their lofty standards, having failed to score more than two points per game this season.

However, as Thomas Tuchel mentioned earlier this week, the Blues were up against two of the best teams this country has ever seen, and they would have needed to achieve 90 points for only the fourth time in their history to compete with Manchester City or Liverpool.

Third place was realistically the best they could hope for this season, however, it will not be used as an excuse for only 12 points from their last nine Premier League games.

Chelsea was held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester City on Thursday evening, with Marcos Alonso canceling out James Maddison’s early goal.

The West Londoners have only won one of their last five league games at Stamford Bridge, and that victory came thanks to a last-gasp winner against West Ham United.

Chelsea vs Watford

Only a Chelsea defeat, a Spurs win over Norwich, and an 18-goal swing will keep Watford from claiming third place, however, the Hornets will be hoping for a Spurs victory at Carrow Road.

With a £2.2m difference between 19th and 20th, the Hornets will want to finish in the former position, and an eight-game winless streak suggests that they may have to be reliant on results elsewhere.

After a goalless draw against Everton, Roy Hodgson, who will be replaced by Rob Edwards after this game, praised his players, but they were blasted 5-1 at home by Leicester in their most recent trip.

Two of their last three away defeats have come at the hands of Liverpool and Manchester City, with Hodgson possibly relieved that only seven goals were scored in those games.

With this game marking the 74-year-1231st old’s and most likely final game as a manager, he’ll be hoping that his players can give him the proper football send-off.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, and Xabi Alonso are all expected to start this game ahead of possible summer exits, however it’s uncertain if Andreas Christensen will get the same treatment.

Another player who could depart Stamford Bridge, goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, could start in goal, with Malang Sarr and Saul Niguez getting some playing time.

Tuchel is unlikely to take any risks with Timo Werner’s hamstring issue, therefore youngster Harvey Vale might be among the replacements.

Despite the style of Watford’s defeat to Leicester, Hodgson does not have many options for making significant changes to his starting lineup due to the club’s injury list.

Ben Foster, the club’s goalkeeper, will make his final appearance, while Hassane Kamara and William Troost-Ekong could return to the defense.

Kwadwo Baah, a highly-rated teenager, might make his Watford debut if he comes on as a substitute.

Chelsea Starting Lineup

Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Sarr; James, Saul, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso; Ziyech, Mount; Havertz

Watford Starting Lineup

Foster; Ngakia, Kabasele, Troost-Ekong, Kamara; Sissoko, Kayembe, Gosling; Kalu, Pedro, Sema.
