Chelsea got themselves back into winning ways this weekend in the English Premier League as Antonio Conte’s men defeated Watford 4-2 at Stamford Bridge.
It was far from a comfortable tie though for the home side as they were forced to battle hard up until the last few minutes before grabbing all three points.
The Blues did start off quite well as they went one goal up after just 12 minutes through their Spanish winger, Pedro, but that early lead was canceled out just before half time break as Abdoulaye Doucoure equalized for the away side.
Things suddenly got bleak again for Chelsea early in the second half when Watford found themselves in front, this time through Roberto Pereyra’s effort.
Refusing to go down again in the league, Conte’s men battle hard and got themselves back on level terms on 71 minutes thanks to Michy Batshuayi’s effort.
The host finally regained their advantage on 87 minutes with a goal from Cesar Azpilicueta, before Batshuayi completed his brace and basically sealed his team’s victory deep in stoppage time.
It was an important victory indeed for Chelsea following their previous fixture defeat from bottom table dweller Crystal Palace, which brings out many criticism towards Conte’s team.
The London based outfit’s midweek draw against AS Roma in the Champions League also didn’t make things any easier for The Blues, but their 4-2 win can somewhat ease up any recent tension that’s been brewing.
