Conte Hails Chelsea's Spirit, Commitment In Watford Win

Late Chelsea goals sink Watford | Bangkok Post: news

Chelsea, largely second best against Watford, showed great resolve to come back and earn a 4-2 win but the victory provided manager Antonio Conte with more questions than answers as he battles to keep their Premier League title defence alive.

Roma penned Chelsea in their own half for much of the thrilling 3-3 Champions League draw in midweek, and the same happened against Watford as Chelsea spent nearly 30 per cent of the match in their defensive third.

"It was a really unfair result".

Watford, who are flying high in fourth place, have made one change to the starting XI that beat Arsenal last week.
Captain Troy Deeney comes in to lead the Hornets in place of Andre Gray and the burly striker will have in-form wingers Richarlison and Pereyra for company. "We didn't create a lot in the first half but we controlled the match".

Victory takes Chelsea above Watford into third in the table, six points behind leaders Manchester City.

"It depends if I want to see the positive aspect or the negative aspect", Conte said, smiling.




Watford pushed Chelsea hard and squandered several good chances but Conte praised his players' heart in coming from 2-1 down and said he had been a bit lucky with his substitutions.

The hosts took a controversial lead when they were awarded a corner despite the ball appearing to have come off the foot of Chelsea's Eden Hazard.

Abdoulaye Doucoure equalised for the visitors just before the first-half whistle with a right-footed shot from the right side of the box to the bottom right corner.

Michy Batshuayi then got his name on the scoresheet 19 minutes from time to level the scores, before Cesar Azpilicueta netted in the 87th minute as Chelsea turned the match on its head.

Pedro had put the Blues ahead in the 12th minute with a sensational 25-yard strike that curled away from Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes and in off the right-hand post.
