Man Of The Match : Eden Hazard. (Chelsea FC)
- Chelsea have only lost one of their seven Premier League games against opponents that started the day in the top 10 this season (W3 D3), with that lone defeat coming against Spurs in November (1-3 at Wembley).
- After losing just three of their first 13 home league games under Javi Gracia (W8 D2), Watford have since lost three of their last four (W1).
- Eden Hazard became the 10th different player to have scored 100 goals in all competitions for Chelsea (now on 101).
- Watford midfielder Roberto Pereyra has scored three goals in three Premier League appearances against Chelsea – more than against any other opponent in the competition.

Manager Reactions :
Javi Gracia: “I think we’ve competed very well. We conceded one in the first and then we scored our goal, and in a moment when we were playing better, we conceded the second goal. It was difficult because we know they are a very good team but I think we competed very well.”
Maurizio Sarri: “I think that we played a good match with a good level of determination and attention for 90 minutes. I think we could have won with another result, we missed three or four good opportunities in the last 20 minutes but I am really very happy with the reaction and application for 95 minutes. Today we reacted very well while playing our football.”
