Chelsea vs Watford Prediction, Farewell Match for Rudiger, Christensen, Azpi & Alonso?

Chelsea vs Watford Prediction. Having already qualified for next season’s Champions League, Chelsea will host relegation team Watford in their last match in the Premier League on Sunday (22/5) evening WIB at Stamford Bridge.

Crazy Ball – Arsenal’s loss to Newcastle United has seen Chelsea seal their place in next season’s Champions League and now need just a point to seal their way into the top three from fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with three points less.

Thomas Tuchel’s men have actually been in a negative form at the end of the season as they have won just once in their last six matches with their last clash ending in a 1-1 draw against Leicester City at home in midweek.

Watford, meanwhile, have nothing to fight for in their last game in the Premier League as they have already been relegated to the Championship after winning just 23 points from 37 games.

Roy Hodgson’s men will go into this clash with a thrashing 5-1 loss to Leicester City at the weekend to take them now on to seven defeats from their last eight matches.

Meeting Record

Watford haven’t beaten Chelsea since May 2018, and have claimed just one point at Stamford Bridge in their last six visits, namely a 2-2 draw in 2015.

Team News

Chelsea are still without Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi. Andreas Christensen may have played his last game for the club, while Mateo Kovacic is a doubt.

Roy Hodgson has a long list of injuries with Imran Louza, Emmanuel Dennis, Ismaïla Sarr, Juraj Kucka, Tom Cleverley and Cucho Hernández all injured. Nicolas Nkoulou, Kiko Femenía and Joshua King are doubts.

Player Estimate

Chelsea XI (3-4-2-1): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Malang Sarr; Reece James, N’golo Kante, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Marcos Alonso; Hakim Ziyech, Mason Mount; Kai Havertz

Watford XI (4-3-3): Ben Foster; Jeremie Ngakia, Christian Kabasele, William Troost-Ekong, Hassane Kamara; Moussa Sissoko, Edo Kayembe, Dan Gosling; Samuel Kalu, Joao Pedro, Ken Sema


This match will be Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen’s last game for the club, heading to Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively. Even Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso could overtake them.

Chelsea have won nine of their last 10 home games against Watford in all competitions, scoring at least three goals in eight of their last nine home games against The Hornets.

Watford go into this clash having lost seven of their last eight Premier League games to see them relegated to the Championship. So we support a landslide victory for The Blues here.

Score Prediction: Chelsea 3-0 Watford
