Blues beat Watford 2-1!

27/12/2018

The Blues returned to winning ways in their Boxing Day match against Watford, which saw Eden Hazard score his 100th goal for Chelsea!

It wasn’t the easiest match however, especially after the hosts equalised soon after our first goal! Luckily Hazard was on hand to put another goal past Watford and earn Chelsea all three points!

Blues manager Maurizio Sarri named an unchanged squad to that of the past four Chelsea Premier League games, meaning Hazard lead the line with Pedro and Willian on either side of him!

It was Pedro and Willian that proved to be most devastating early on, they nearly linked up and scored within the opening two minutes!

The Spaniard picked up the ball, exchanged passes with Willian, and then fired the ball towards goal, going just inches wide of the goal. So close!

This early excitement continued throughout the first half, with lots of attacks from both teams! Willian came close thanks to a nice run from Kovacic, and then Watford threatened after a stray clearance from Kepa landed invitingly for Gerard Deulofeu. Our defence managed to turn it around though!

As the first half was coming to an end, Kante and Kovacic forced Watford to an error on the halfway line, which ended up with Hazard, who ran towards the keeper, skipped past him, and slipped the ball into into the open goal! Chelsea take the lead, and Hazard gets his 100th Chelsea goal!!!

We didn’t have long to celebrate this great moment however, as Watford managed to equalise right away. This goal came from a Jose Holebas corner, which was met by a volley from Pereyra which found the bottom corner. What a mad way to end the half!

The second half started just as frantic as the first! After an attempt on goal by Kante and then a penalty appeal from Watford, the attack shifted back to Chelsea, as Jorginho found Hazard in the penalty area. Ben Foster brought down the Belgian and the Blues were awarded a penalty!

Hazard stepped up and send Foster the wrong to earn him and Chelsea their second goal of the afternoon! All Chelsea had to do now was hold on to ensure all three points were ours.

Chelsea did well to hold onto the ball for much of the second half, and were nearly rewarded with another goal when there was 20 minutes left on the clock. It was Willian once again who fired towards goal, but went wide again. So close!

The rest of the half was tightly contested, but Chelsea held on to ensure the victory!
