The Blues will be hoping to bounce back after being held to a home draw by Manchester United last time out.

Watford Preview – Can Ranieri’s Hornets cause a big upset?

Watford have had a tough time on their Premier League return, winning just four of their opening 13. However, they are out of the bottom three at present, four points clear of 18th-place Burnley, who have a game in hand on the Hornets.

The experienced Claudio Ranieri replaced the sacked Xisco Munoz in October, and the former Premier League title winner has picked up just two wins so far. However, both victories were impressive, seeing off Everton 5-2 at Goodison Park and Manchester United 4-1 at Vicarage Road.

Our betting prediction:
Chelsea to win both halves

(odds taken 1117 GMT, Tuesday 30 November)

Watford were easily beaten at the weekend, losing 4-2 to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. This will be another tough test for Ranieri and his Hornets, who are the big 8/1 underdogs on home soil.

Chelsea Preview – Routine away victory for the Premier League leaders?

Chelsea were held to a 1-1 home draw by Man United last weekend, but Thomas Tuchel’s men have hardly put a foot wrong this season. Last term’s UEFA Champions League winners have won nine, drawn three and lost one of their opening 13 league matches.

Since a 1-0 European reverse at Juventus, Chelsea have bounced back with four straight league and cup away wins, beating Brentford, Newcastle United, Malmo and Leicester without conceding a single goal. The Londoners have the best away record in the division, dropping just two points from six away matches.

When these two teams last met, Chelsea beat Watford 3-0 thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud, Willian and Ross Barkley. The reverse fixture at Vicarage Road in the 2019-20 season ended in a 2-1 win for the Blues.
