Our match prediction:
Having survived West Ham in the London derby, Chelsea will be looking to record their first away win of the season when they square off against Watford at Vicarage Road Stadium. The Hornets played out a 1-1 draw with Southampton in the opening match of their Premier League campaign, but it has to be noted that the Saints had 24 goal attempts in the 1-1 draw with Walter Mazzarri’s charges. Watford failed to impress in their opener and we would not be surprised if they fail to grab something from Saturday’s football game against Chelsea. Diego Costa helped the capital club pick up all three points from the local derby against West Ham and he is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back line. The Hornets failed to beat Chelsea in previous seven meetings between the two teams in all competitions and we do not believe that they are capable of putting an end to the negative trend.
Highligted Player (Deeney):
Troy Deeney started his professional career in 2006 at Walsall. The prolific attacker scored 27 goals in 123 appearances for the club and in 2010 he went on to sign a contract with Watford. He joined the Hornets for a fee of £500,000 and it has to be noted that he scored only two goals for the team in the 2010/2011 Championship campaign. However, as time went by he was raising his form and in the 2014/2015 the English attacker scored 21 goals for Watford and helped the team secure promotion to the Premier League. Troy Deeney was playing an important role in Quique Sanchez Flores’ team on their return to the English top flight and he bagged no fewer than 13 goals in the 2015/2016 season. Deeney was born in Birmingham, West Midlands, on 29 June, 1988 and he has two children, Myles, a son, and a daughter Amelia. His brother Ellis is a football player as well, but he plays as a midfielder. The striker has also spent some time in prison, but has since seriously improved his behaviour.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game. Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash. After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
