Chelsea defeated Watford 2-1 at the Vicarage Road on Saturday evening as goals from Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic gave the Blues a two goal lead before a Gerard Deulofeu penalty goal late on gave the game a nervy end.

Chelsea have a great form away from home and the win was Chelsea’s 7th away win of the season – and it’s the first time the Blues have won seven consecutive away matches since 1989.

Chelsea have beaten Norwich, Wolves, Lille, Southampton, Ajax and Burnley in that run but will have to defeat reigning Premier League champions Manchester City if they are to break the 30-year record.

Lampard said of his players after the game: “The players are working hard. The way we’re working off the ball, we have to put in a lot of leg work and I’ve got players who are putting in the work. They’re training the way they want to play.”

The Blues boss then spoke about his team’s away form: “Maybe away from home teams open up against us slightly more. I don’t think today was one of those days but it’s happened in certain games, which then gives us the opportunity with the pace we’ve got in forward areas that we can counter-attack and create chances. Whereas at the Bridge, teams come and make it difficult for us to do that with as much freedom.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
