It was a thrilling game between Chelsea and Watford at Stamford Bridge, and one the Blues had to dig deep to take all three points.
Abdoulaye Doucoure and Roberto Pereyra cancelled out Pedro’s early opener to give Watford a 2-1 lead going into the final 20 minutes at Stamford Bridge, but on came Michy Batshuayi for the last 30 minutes of the game and spared the team’s blushes with two goals.
Had Chelsea lost to Watford, it would have been three defeats to the Blues in a row, but Batshuayi’s goals ensured Chelsea won the game and some Chelsea fans believe Conte has Batshuayi to thank for saving his job as they believe his job would have been on the line had Chelsea lost.
Conte was actually on his way out of Stamford Bridge then batshuayi called him back… 😂

Batshuayi just saved Conte's job but Watford deserved to win though; they were the better side.
