Watford haven’t won away at Chelsea in any competition since May 1986 (5-1), drawing four and losing eight at Stamford Bridge since then. Chelsea have won each of their last three Premier League home games, having won just two of their previous seven at Stamford Bridge (D1 L4). They last won more consecutively at home in December 2017 under Antonio Conte (7). Watford have earned just six points from their last 30 available in the Premier League (W1 D3 L6). However, four of those six points have come against sides in the top four (3-0 v Liverpool, 1-1 v Leicester). Watford have shipped 49 goals in their 32 Premier League games this season – they’ve conceded at least 50 in each of their previous six full campaigns in the competition. Of teams to have played in more than five seasons in the Premier League, only Norwich (9/9) and QPR (7/7) have conceded 50+ goals in all of them. Chelsea have dropped 18 points from losing positions in the Premier League this season – only in 2015-16 (21) have they dropped more in a single campaign in the Roman Abramovich era. 66% of the Premier League goals Chelsea have conceded this season have come in the second half (29/44), the highest ratio in the division. Chelsea have lost four of their last five Premier League matches against teams starting the day in the bottom four of the table (W1), as many as they’d lost in their previous 37 such games (W27 D6 L4). Chelsea’s Willian has scored eight goals in the Premier League this season, three of which have come since the restart in June. It is the Brazilian’s joint best scoring season in the Premier League (also 2016-17), and his joint best season for goal involvements (8 goals, 5 assists), alongside 2017-18. Despite being Chelsea’s leading scorer in the Premier League this season with 13 goals, Tammy Abraham has failed to score in any of his last seven games in the competition.,
