Chelsea sharpen knives for one man after struggles against Watford

Chelsea sharpen knives for one man after struggles against Watford

Chelsea edge past Watford

It was close, but in a heavily delayed game, Chelsea prevailed despite a woeful performance.

Although they took the lead courtesy of Mason Mount, they were quickly pegged back by the Hornets, with Emmanuel Dennis levelling the scoring.

It took a second-half introduction of Hakim Ziyech to break the deadlock, with the Chelsea forward providing what proved to be the winner 20 minutes from time.

The result, along with wins for Manchester City and Liverpool, keeps the Blues a point clear at the top of the Premier League, despite injury issues and a defence that is beginning to look leaky by its previously impervious standards.

Better haul Saul

It was one half time change in particular that Chelsea fans took a particular liking to, as Thiago Silva replaced loanee Saul Niguez. It was a second Premier League start for Saul, and on both occasions, he has been hooked at half-time.

And it’s safe to say, Chelsea fans made their feelings very clear on the Spaniard.

Will Saul still be in west London come the end of the January window?
