Chelsea rallied late on to secure all three points against Watford at Stamford Bridge.

The Premier League champions took the lead through a stunning strike from Pedro. After a corner was taken short, the Spaniard produced a brilliant curling effort which cannoned off the post and found it’s way into the back of the net. .

On the stroke of half-time, Watford drew level. Just minutes into the second half, they bagged a second, and it could have been more had Richarlison had his shooting boots on.

It looked as though the Blues were heading towards a third consecutive Premier League defeat, but a brace from substitute Michy Batshuayi and a rare goal for Cesar Azpilicueta ensured that Chelsea would take all three points from the fixture.

Psychologically it could prove to be a huge win for Chelsea, and could have even kept Antonio Conte in the job. Here’s our player ratings for today’s game.

Courtois 4, Rudiger 5, David Luiz 5, Cahill 2, Azpilicueta 8, Bakayoko 2, Fabregas 8, Alonso 3, Pedro 7, Hazard 7, Morata 1. Subs: Batshuayi 10, Willian 8, Zappacosta 8.
