  • Oh and is there a bigger (English) prat in the prem than Troy Deeney? Looks like Sloth form The Goonies and acts like it.

  • everything wrong with chelsea right now summed up in short: manger not happy with owner and how transfers were done,luiz not happy with manager had a bust up, cahill like I said before a mistake in defence waiting to happen, bakayoko does'nt fit into the lineup and doesn't add nothing to the team, hazard being too relied on to get the win if he doesn't have a great match chelsea struggle too, fabregas not his usual best this season.

  • @RemyLebeu Agree

  • @RemyLebeu this is bs conte is still conte fabregas is still fabregas Chelsea is still a Top team in the PL . weird league the question now is are you entertained folks ?

  • @RemyLebeu- I have very little sympathy for Conte. He should've known exactly what club he was being asked to manage. Every manager has had the same issues with Roman Abramovich and the board buying/selling their own players and this has been well documented for a decade now. How he thought it would change (if indeed he ever actually did) is beyond me. My guess is he is actually a fairly astute man, thought "I'll do a couple of seasons then, when I am sacked, I should have a premier league title on my CV". It has worked. He will be sacked, paid off at least some percentage of his contract and get a top job in Germany, Spain or even stay in the prem. He will not be short of offers given he has out-thought a number of top managers over the years. The fact he didn't start Giroud tonight, even though it was tailor made for him to do so, suggests he isn't one of Antonio's choices either.

  • Wow! That escalated quickly! What do Chelsea fans think of the moronic starting lineup? 3-4-2-1 with two number tens and Hazard as a false nine. Conte must have thought he is Guardiola and that he is managing Barelona. And was is a penalty or not?

  • @BeautifulLoser Chelsea should be using Hazard as a left wing forward to get the most of him and playing a proper centre forward always to occupy the space number 9 would occupy. Tonight Hazard, Giroud, Willian/Pedro is an obvious front three in 3421 system. 4231 is also an option with Pedro and Willian on the flanks , Giroud centre forward with Hazard having license to roam (this can be done with Willian too, with Hazard left in theory). For me Fabregas should start over Bakayoko every game regardless of the formation used. And this system is very forced with Zappacosta left wing back and Moses right wing back anyway and no centre forward. It's a complete mess. Zappacosta can play right back and Azpilicueta left back in a back four system for example. And he surprisingly picked Luiz in a team with players out of position and questionable personnel which is not expected to have defensive solidarity. Conte's initial team selection is a complete mess, but Bakayoko cost Chelsea the most

  • @Champion Why you blame the tactical issues? you forgot that this team wins the EPL last season with the same players !

  • @Champion I fully agree with that.

  • And Caballero was doing a much better job than the overrated Courtois.

  • @MrNemobody True.

  • With Cahill, David Luiz and Bakayoko, I wouldn't expect less. Only Hazard and Fàbregas play in this team.

  • deulofeu shouldn't play for watford but Game time matters in order to take part to the WC

  • @modric97 100% agree. He should be playing for a top team.

  • Well that went to s**t real quick

  • Watford were brilliant, Chelsea would have needed 4 John Terry's, 4 Hazard's & 2 Drogba's to win tonight.

  • I knew it best bet here was btts only. chelsea are too inconsistent right now with a manager who is not happy with owner.

  • you're getting sacked in the morning

  • Awesome equalizer by Hazard, and an even more awesome response by Janmaat! Good monday night match.

  • Chelsea need to switch to a back four or risk getting overrun in the midfield with no width.

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • @Nef21 Sometimes I start to wonder how Monaco reached the CL semi-final with Bakayoko in their midfield...

  • @Nef21 Bakayoko is absolute trash.

  • @Champion Trash !! he is unlucky these days , You don't have memory? You forgot what he did in Monaco last season?

  • @Champion call a player trash and he still makes more than you how sad

  • @shakes lol

  • @Champion not a Chelsea fan but the few times I watched he couldn't complete a pass. With what he just pulled I think my bet is lost, Chelsea gonna lose. Let's hope Giroud come in and save the day. With Hazard playing front man they're not going to score.

  • @Nef21 Does this player deserve $60m?

  • @Cannavaro69 Don't know. I don't watch Chelsea games. With cash overflowing from tv deals everybody nowadays is worth $60m

  • @Nef21 yeah you are righti will be not surprised to see deals $200m next season

  • Bakayoko only seems to play for himself and not the team...he is constantly trying to make an individual impact on and off the ball and it destroys the shape of the team. He has no composure at all near the opponent's goal either. Perhaps he is trying too hard for the team and just lacks understanding of the game and what his role should be. Perhaps I was overly harsh before on my assessment. It would be good to know what he's thinking in his head when he plays and what his intentions are. Right now he isn't helping Chelsea at all at either end of the pitch nor in the central areas..

  • @Champion It's simple, mate. He isn't thinking.

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • @Nef21 He didn't deserve the second yellow card, it's unfair

  • @Cannavaro69 unfair or nah he still got thrown out. If he didn't foul in first instance he would have only one card.

  • @Nef21 He sucks, that's how. (Chelsea fan)

  • @splint3r yeah I know but still you can't be this bad. Conte always play him for whatever reason.

  • Keeping an eye on Deulofeu. Hope he impresses.

  • hm...David Luiz in the squad as a starter palyer :( I hope my btts will win.

  • Probably the best bet is Watford to score, but if Watford scores, then probably Chelsea scores too, so BTTS might be good as well. Chelsea lost their last home match so they are probably going to win now, so this another suggestion of mine is very risky but, I think it still worths the try because of the odds which is Watford to win.

  • @hellreaper So WTF we can understand from you, what we can bet?

  • @Cannavaro69 Basically, I said the best bet was Watford to score and that you could try with little stake on Watford to win and not be confident because it is very risky

  • @hellreaper But you said Chelsea could probably win

  • @Cannavaro69 That's the justification of the risky part

  • @Cannavaro69 That's the justification of the risky part

  • Correct score Watford 1-2 Chelsea

  • @Abdulski97 worst prediction ever

  • @Abdulski97 How do you know, the game is not over?

  • If Chelsea fail to win, Conte will be sacked immediately

  • @Onmieadson pow

  • @Onmieadson If Watford win convincingly, Javier Gracia will be sacked for no convincing reason at a whimsically random time in the future.

  • @Onmieadson They will wait for the champions legue match against Barcelona if he failed to qualify then he will be sacked immediately

  • Chelsea win and BTTS

  • watford vs chelsea 0-2

  • 2+BTTS+ Ov2.5

  • 1-1. Chelsea is in a bad form.

  • i think chelsea will bounce back and win 4-2 if not 4-0 but they will score 4 or more

  • @Serial_Scorer other way round

  • @Serial_Scorer Why you are so sure the last 5 matches under 2.5

  • 99.99 % Watford vs Chelsea -> btts Lazio vs Genoa -> 3+ Maritimo vs Portimonense -> x2 and 0-2

  • @lucky31 What do you mean by 3+??

  • @lucky31 sorry 99.99 % Watford vs Chelsea -> btts Lazio vs Genoa -> 3+ Maritimo vs Portimonense -> x1 and 0-2

  • @lucky31 You better stay with your first choice Portimonese just won :D

  • Watford win

  • rudiger and cahill in defence surely watford can score a goal at least, but watford defence chelsea can score surely too btts looks good here.

  • 0-0

  • in my point of view, this game is gonna be tough, two teams looking to find their way back in track and I don't see Chelsea losing this one, but I believe Chelsea will concede at least one goal with the absences of D. Luiz and Christensen.

  • @lucasmuricy Agree

  • Giroud will score. Mark my words.

  • Watford 0 - 4 Chelsea

  • @shakes We go ! 0-4

  • @shakes Watford 0 - 4 / 0 - 2 Chelsea
