Chelsea was held to an important draw by Manchester United in the previous match it played and that basically got rid of the cushion it had at the top of the Premier League 2021-22 standings. It is now going to travel away from home to take on the struggling Watford team and hope to get back to winning ways. Chelsea dominated the match against Manchester United in terms of any statistic that you can bring up. Ball possession, Passing percentage, shots on target, corners, etc. Everything was dominated by Chelsea but it could not convert those chances.
Watford is down in 16th position at the moment with just four wins from 13 matches and is struggling to remain above the relegation zone. It is not a side that you want to just look past but it is easy to see why the football betting sites have given it such astronomical odds to win this match at home.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Watford vs Chelsea Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Vicarage Road, Watford, England on the 1st of December 2021.
Watford taking on Chelsea may seem like a complete mismatch but Premier League football has a strange way of surprising you when you least expect it. Watford managed to score four goals against Manchester United just last week and is certainly capable of scoring with Sarr and King at the front. Getting past the tough Chelsea defense is not going to be easy, though. Thomas Tuchel's men are very well-drilled and do not make many mistakes (the last match seemed to be an aberration). We expect them to be at full strength with Lukaku playing a lot many more minutes and we are going to bet on them to win this match.
Bet on Chelsea to win.
The odds on fewer than 2.5 goals being scored in this match are quite attractive. Chelsea is not a team that has shown itself to be very adept at scoring a large number of goals. If anything, it seems to relish strangling its opponents and getting one or two goals to its name when the chances present themselves. Three out of the previous five matches for Chelsea have seen fewer than 2.5 goals being scored and we are happy to take a punt on that happening in this match as well.
