Frank Lampard cut a dejected figure at the London Stadium on Wednesday night after watching his Chelsea team concede a late winner against West Ham after dominating possession and creating enough chances to win the capital derby.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Once again, defensive errors came back to haunt the Blues and the manager will want to eradicate them for the upcoming visit of Watford, with the Hornets potentially feeling a backlash from a team who have aspirations of landing a Champions League berth this term.

Chelsea are in a scrap with Leicester, Manchester United and Wolves to secure a top-four finish this season, with the team playing some enterprising football and the performances of Christian Pulisic and Willian have been especially eye-catching.

The Brazilian is arguably having his best season since arriving at Stamford Bridge and the attacking midfielder has five goals in his past six encounters, with Lampard now looking for that defensive five to keep things tighter and it’s possible that N’Golo Kante will be brought back into a deeper position.

As for Watford, they are still odds-against to be relegated but it has to be a massive concern for Nigel Pearson that his team have only been able to collect one point from three games played since the restart.

The 1-1 draw against Leicester was fair enough but then came a 1-0 reverse at Burnley before a 3-1 home defeat against Southampton and that result really puts pressure on the Hornets.

It will be interesting to see the game plan deployed by the visitors in this game who will surely not show a good deal of ambition based on how devastating Chelsea can be from an attacking point-of-view.

Therefore, we will take a punt on Chelsea to tighten up defensively and keep their first clean sheet of the restart as part of a victory against relegation-threatened opponents.
