Chelsea have won their last two away league matches at Watford, but have never triumphed in three in a row at Vicarage Road before.
Claudio Ranieri’s six Premier League matches in charge of Watford have seen 25 goals scored (11 for and 14 against), the most in a manager’s first six matches in charge of a club since Frank Lampard at Chelsea (also 25).
Watford won their last Premier League match on a Wednesday, beating Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 in January 2020. The Hornets had never previously won a Premier League contest on this day before that (D4 L12).
Jorginho has scored 15 Premier League goals for Chelsea, with 13 of those coming from the penalty spot – that ratio of 87 per cent of his goals coming from penalties is the highest in Premier League history of any player to have scored at least 10 goals in the competition.
