Welcome to our live coverage of Chelsea-Watford. This is what you need know ahead of the kick-off.
  • Chelsea have lost just one of the previous eight Premier League meetings with Watford (W5 D2 L1); this coming in a 1-0 win for the Hornets at Vicarage Road back in September 1999 - Allan Smart scoring the only goal of the game.
  • Watford haven’t won a competitive game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge since May 5th 1986. The Hornets enjoyed a 5-1 victory in their final top-flight game of the 1985-86 season, thanks to goals from David Bardsley (2), Brian Talbot (2) and Colin West.
  • Chelsea beat Watford both home and away in the Premier League last season by a single goal margin and both matches saw them score the winning goal in the 87th minute or later.
  • Chelsea have already lost three of their opening eight Premier League games to the 2017-18 season. The last time a team lost this many of their opening eight league games and still won the top-flight title were Manchester United in 1966-67.
  • Antonio Conte has lost three of his first eight league games in a campaign for the first time since 2009-10 when taking over at Atalanta (in September 2009) in Serie A (also three losses).
  • Chelsea haven’t lost three consecutive Premier League games since November 2015 under Jose Mourinho during their title defence of the successful 2014-15 campaign.
