Watford Humbles Chelsea With Late Minute Goals

Antonio Conte won the title for the previous season of the Premier League but his team has earned weak results in the current season.Antonio Conte won the title for the previous season of the Premier League but his team has earned weak results in the current season.

On a night that Chelsea would rather forget, losing 4-1 away at Watford on February 5, the Hornets’ new loan signing Gerard Deulofeu marked his debut with a goal.

The match started slowly but gradually built to a crescendo, due in no small part to Tiemoue Bakayoko’s two yellows, and subsequent red, in five first-half minutes, Marca reported.

Men down, Chelsea was soon a goal down, Troy Deeney converting a penalty for the hosts just before the break.

With eight minutes to go, the Blues’ talisman, Eden Hazard, looked to have earned his side a point, but Chelsea went to sleep.

Daryl Janmaat (84), Deulofeu (88) and Roberto Pereyra (90) helped themselves against a team that looks devoid of confidence.

Watford currently holds the 11th place of the Premier League ranking while Conte’s team is at fourth place after Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool respectively. With 19 points gap between Chelsea and the top place owner, it seems that the title race for Chelsea is over.
