Magnificent Watford condemned 10-man Chelsea to their second consecutive loss in the Premier League after netting four past the champions at Vicarage Road on Monday night. Just days after Chelsea suffered a shocking 3-0 loss to Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

It was a sad night for the Premier League champions, the out-of-sorts Tiemoue Bakayoko was sent off after half an hour before Troy Deeney scored the opener from the penalty spot in the 42nd minute.


Chelsea, who were trounce by Bournemouth in their last game, looked as though they might snatch a point when Eden Hazard scored a brilliant equaliser in the 82nd minute.

Watford scored three times in seven minutes through Daryl Janmaat, Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra to secure victory for new head coach Javi Gracia on his home debut.

The loss means Chelsea now sit just one point above fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the battle for a Champions League spot, though they are just one point back of third-place Liverpool.

Chelsea's manager, Antonio Conte speaks on his future, he said;
"It is not my problem. I try to do my job. I try to put everything in my job. If this is enough, it's ok. Otherwise they can take their decision."
Gerard Deulofeu, who was the Man Of The Match display his wonderful performance as he won a penalty from which Deeney gave the hosts the lead and had as many shots (4) and key passes (4) as any other Watford player.

The best manager of the night, Javi Gracia say;
"You always work for nights like this but this is unforgettable. I am very proud of my team and my players and very happy for our fans to enjoy a great victory."
