Following home draws with Burnley and Manchester United, the Blues’ lead atop the Premier League table has been cut to a single point.

However, Chelsea are the only unbeaten team away from home in the league having conceded just one goal in six matches. By contrast, half of Watford’s home league goals this season came in the recent 4-1 hammering of United.

Defence has also been a big issue for Claudio Ranieri’s team and Sunday’s 4-2 loss at Leicester made it 23 Premier League games without a clean sheet – a run stretching back to February 2020.

Chelsea will hope to extend their record of seven wins in their last eight league meetings against the Hornets, in which they have scored 21 goals.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Watford vs Chelsea is scheduled for a 7.30pm GMT kick-off tonight – Wednesday, December 1, 2021.

The match will take place at Vicarage Road.

Thomas Tuchel confirmed on Tuesday doubts over Reece James, Jorginho and Timo Werner. N’Golo Kante missed the draw with Manchester United due to a knee injury and is set to miss this match.

Mateo Kovacic (thigh) and Ben Chilwell (knee) are out for Chelsea, and Tuchel could turn to Romelu Lukaku for a first start since he suffered an ankle injury over a month ago.

Chelsea to win, 3-1.
Head to head (h2h) history and results

Watford wins: 10

Draws: 6

Chelsea wins: 21

Chelsea meet Watford tonight in a Premier League encounter at Vicarage Road.

All three of the title race contenders are in action tonight and all three face testing away trips: second-place Manchester City travel to Steven Gerrard’s rejuvenated Aston Villa, while Liverpool face a Merseyside derby with Everton at Goodison Park.

Chelsea’s fixture is on paper the easiest of the three, but Watford have shown promise recently under Claudio Ranieri, particularly going forwards with the threats of Emmanuel Dennis, Ismaila Sarr and Josh King are proving a handful for any side.

Watford remain fragile defensively, however, and conceded four goals against Leicester City on the weekend. PREMIER LEAGUE leaders Chelsea make the short journey to Watford tonight looking to get back to winning ways. The Blues were held 1-1 by Man Utd last time out, while the Hornets have lost three of their last four top-flight games.
