Tips Chelsea win and Eden Hazard to score    Best Bet @ 7 / 2  

The Blues

Conte was no doubt apoplectic with rage after watching Chelsea lose 3-0 to Bournemouth last week and it means they have now won just two of nine games in all competitions this season, albeit they are still sitting in that all-important fourth position in the top-flight table.

A visit to Watford could be just what the Blues need to get back to form as they extended their unbeaten run in this fixture to 13 games when they won 4-2 against the Hornets at Stamford Bridge in October.

Watford had gone into that previous meeting with 15 points from eight games but they have taken a paltry 11 from 16 outings since, so it is no surprise to see that Watford are 5/1 underdogs on Monday night, while Chelsea are 8/13 favourites for victory (Betfred).

Hazard Warning

Watford have the worst home record in the Premier League after taking 13 points from 12 games at Vicarage Road, keeping just two clean sheets in the process. Both team scored in eight of the Hornets' 12 home league matches, including in the past six in a row, and both teams to score can be backed at 10/11 this week (Betfred.com).

However, new manager Javi Gracia has introduced a more pragmatic style of football as Marco Silva's replacement has seen his side lose 1-0 to Southampton and draw 0-0 with Stoke in his first two league matches in charge, although those two results also extended Watford's number of games without a goal to three.

So, injury-hit Watford are struggling to score goals and they can't keep them out at Vicarage Road - it doesn't bode well.

Eden Hazard has scored four goals in his last three away games in all competitions and it is worth noting that eight of his 12 goals for Chelsea this season have come away from Stamford Bridge. With that in mind, the Chelsea win combined with Hazard to score looks like a great bet at 7/2 (Betway).

The visitors should have too much quality as they bid to show a positive reaction to the Bournemouth defeat and Olivier Giroud, who is 11/8 to score at anytime, is pushing for a first start in a Chelsea shirt as Alvaro Morata is struggling with a back complaint.
