Chelsea won Watford 4-2 on Saturday despite not being at our best and Watford playing so well. Watford also lost 6-0 to Manchester City early this season despite playing so well against the league leaders.
Chelsea legend Pat Nevin revealed Chelsea won Watford despite not being at our best because Chelsea have players who can do something extra special even if the team isn’t playing at its best as a unit or the opposition are playing well themselves.
“The top teams such as Man City and Chelsea have players who can do something extra special even if the team isn’t playing at its best as a unit, or indeed if the opposition are playing well themselves,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.
“So against Roma, the Italian side had the bigger percentage of possession and the Blues were under the cosh, but Eden Hazard had the capability to do something a bit special to salvage a vital point with his flicked header.
“The crossed ball into the area was top quality too and that is the point, the quality only needs to shine through briefly sometimes.
“Against Watford it was eerily similar in the way Michy Batshuayi flicked in a header from almost precisely the same spot to help us get three points from yet another fabulous right-sided cross.
“So in the blink of an eye what could have been a very painful week now has a positive sheen. The point against Roma keeps us top in the Champions League group and the three against Watford kept us in the chasing pack in the Premier League.”
