Watford Vs Chelsea
Tiemoue Bakayoko suffered the disappointment of being sent off in the 30th minute after he was shown a second yellow card for stepping on Richarlisson’s toes but it paled in comparison to the result. The eventual, an embarrassing 4-1 defeat meant that the Premier League defending Champions slumped to their second defeat in their last two games.
If the 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth was bad, this was worse as the Blues were expected to muster a strong response but in the end, it shaped up yet again to be another period where 10 minutes of indifferent play led to an avoidable defeat.
Troy Deeney put Watford ahead with a penalty after Courtois made the first of many mistakes of the night and his celebration, a double middle finger gesture will definitely attract scrutiny and a fine from the Football Association.
A late equalizer from Eden Hazard provided hope for Chelsea as an opportunity to grab one point presented itself but the next ten minutes would prove to be disastrous for the Blues as Daryl Janmaat put Watford ahead merely two minutes later.
It went from bad to worse as a frenzied final ten minutes saw Gerard Deulofeu grab a third before Robert Pererya added gloss to the result with a fourth goal in extra time.
