One hallmark of a Championship winning team is to win a game even when the team didn’t perform well. This was the case of Chelsea’s game against Watford on Wednesday night.

Chelsea defeated Watford 2-1 away from home at the Vicarage Road on Wednesday night, but it was a very difficult game for the Blues.

Chelsea’s match winner against Watford, Hakim Ziyech, hailed the team after the game for being able to snatch the three points despite not playing well.

“You can see from the beginning that even when we found it difficult, we never quit,” the Moroccan said.

“We were always trying to find the spaces and we knew our moment would come. That’s also one of the strengths of this team because no matter if we play good or bad, we always find a way to score.

“During a season, you know you can’t always play good but the most important thing when you don’t is to win the games and today was a good example of that. It’s always good to stay top of the table and I think we also deserve to stay there right now.”
