In the match of the 33 round of the championship of England at Stamford bridge will meet one of the leaders of the championship – Chelsea – and one of the outsiders of the season is “Watford”. Despite the fact that the opponents this season to solve the opposite problem, the fight is not going to be a cakewalk for the team Lampard. But the simple reason that “Watford” struggling for survival.
Yet “hornets” to decide their prosaic task with varying degrees of success. In their last three games after the restart of the season, “the Golden boys” sensationally selected points from “Lester” coming in third place (1-1) but then lost twice – “Burnley” (0:1) and “Southampton” (1:3). At the moment, “Watford” is the saving 17th place in the standings, ahead going to the 18th position, “Aston Villa” at some point.
Chelsea resumed the season with a victory over “Aston Villa” (2:1), “Syria” (2:1) and “Lester” (1:0 in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup), but then followed a disappointing defeat in the Derby, “West ham” – 2:3. However, the opponents “aristocrats” in the fight for third place Leicester also acts unevenly, so the “foxes” broke away from “blue” in the standings just one point. So there is a good chance to catch up and overtake the team of Rogers. On the other hand, on the heel “Chelsea” comes “Manunited”, lagging behind on two points. Therefore, the match against “Watford”, “blue” need to win if they want to finish in the top four. But, as mentioned above, the glasses really need and “hornets” fighting for survival.
“Watford”, can safely be considered a convenient opponent for Chelsea. In the last 18 internal matches “the aristocrats” scored 13 wins, three games ended in a draw, and only twice won the “yellow army”. The first leg ended guest team Victoria Lampard 2:1.
In the upcoming game Chelsea can not count on van Ginkel, Jorginho, Miazga, Musonda and Tomori. “Watford” will not be able to help Deulofeu, Anmat and success.
