Watford 1-2 Chelsea

Match summary

2 Nov 2019
Watford v Chelsea

Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic were on target as Chelsea beat Watford 2-1 to earn a fifth consecutive victory.

Chelsea took the lead after five minutes, Jorginho’s perfectly weighted through-ball finding Abraham, who lobbed the ball over Ben Foster for his ninth goal of the season.

Foster denied Abraham a second and spectacularly saved efforts from Pulisic and Mason Mount, while Gerard Deulofeu flashed a shot narrowly wide for Watford.

Pulisic grabbed a deserved second for Chelsea on 55 minutes, tapping in Abraham’s low cross from four yards.

Deulofeu pulled a goal back from the penalty spot in the 80th minute, with the VAR identifying a clear trip on the Spaniard by Jorginho. 

Kepa Arrizabalaga saved dramatically in stoppage time from Foster, who had come up for a free-kick in a last throw of the dice, to ensure Chelsea move up a spot to third on 23 points.

Watford stay bottom with five points.
