Watford’s lost the joint-most matches this Premier League season but hopes to get another memorable win when it hosts Chelsea on Wednesday (start time 2:30pm ET online via Peacock Premium).

The Hornets have beaten Manchester United and Everton since Claudio Ranieri took over but have lost on eight times, matching Norwich City for the most in the league.


The biggest problem for Watford’s upset hopes is that Chelsea just doesn’t lose much at all. Thomas Tuchel’s Blues are unbeaten in 11-straight contests since losing to Juventus on Sept. 29.

They’ll look to make it a dozen at Vicarage Road against one of their club’s former managers.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Watford vs Chelsea.

Mateo Kovacic and Ben Chilwell are out, while N’Golo Kante is touch-and-go for the trip to Vicarage Road.

Odds and ends (full odds provided by our partner, PointsBet)

Chelsea’s away from home but a heavy favorite at -334 to take all three points, and a draw will pay +425. If Watford bags another surprising win, the bettor gets +850 for their risk.

Watford’s injuries and Chelsea’s relative health — at least in attack — makes the big underdog status appear relatively small. Watford 0-3 Chelsea.
