With Flores' Hornets still struggling for firepower, Al Hain-Cole is backing Lampard's prolific side to secure a convincing win at Vicarage Road

Chelsea will be aiming to bounce back from defeat when they travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford in Saturday's Premier League clash.

The Blues went down 2-1 at home to Manchester United in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup clash, putting an end to their seven-match winning streak.

Watford vs Chelsea latest odds

Having won eight and lost just one of their last 11 encounters with this opposition, they are 4/6 (1.67) favourites with bet365 to return to form by coming out on top here.

Rock bottom without a win to their name in the league, Quique Sanchez Flores' team can be backed at 15/4 (4.75) to kick start their season by pulling off a shock victory.

The hosts have drawn each of their last three successive league matches, and you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on them earning a share of the spoils once again in this one.

Watford vs Chelsea team news

Troy Deeney and Danny Welbeck are both ruled out through injury, while Tom Cleverley, Etienne Capoue, Ismaila Sarr, Domingos Quina and Isaac Success are all doubtful.

Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, N'Golo Kante, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all sidelined, although Ross Barkley will be hoping to return following an ankle injury.

Watford vs Chelsea preview

Although the Hornets have tightened up at the back since the 8-0 mauling against Manchester City in mid-September, they are still struggling at the other end of the pitch.

While Watford have only conceded once in the last three league matches, they have also found the net just once in five and have failed to score in their last two at home.

This lack of cutting edge is in stark contrast to Frank Lampard's team, which has scored an average of four goals per match over the last four away league fixtures.

Watford vs Chelsea predictions

With such a clear mismatch in terms of firepower, odds of 13/8 (2.63) are surely worth backing on Chelsea winning by at least two goals for their fourth consecutive league game on the road.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
