You might have heard it already, but Chelsea won the league title on Friday night thanks to a goal from a forgotten player, Michy Batshuayi, 0-1 at West Brom.
Chelsea’s incredible season has been built on a simple base. A good defence that has played 16 games with a clean sheet. The work of player of the year N’Golo Kanté in the middle of the field; And the unpredictable brilliance of Eden Hazard in the attack, combined with the musculature and determination of Diego Costa .
Conte has his strongest eleven available, but we do not know if he will opt for it. The Italian may be tempted to rest some of his key men, to make sure they get fresh for the FA Cup final. Or give some time for players from the bank or even youth. It is a total unknown, which makes the bets of this match are a little more unpredictable than we would like.
The Watford comes after four consecutive defeats: a 1-0 win against Swansea at Vicarage Road in April was his last triumph. That result ensured in practice their survival in the Premier League. What has come after has been pretty ugly since Watford failed to score more goals in three home games and one at home. The defense is being more or less decent, with two of those games lost by a lone goal. However, coach Walter Mazzarri is feeling the pressure, as it seems he will not continue the season in the next charge due to this poor final season.
Markets lean heavily toward an entertaining evening. Given the question mark about Chelsea’s intensity, the possibility of changes in the lineup, the potential fatigue in the local ranks, and Watford’s bad scoring streak, we see in the ‘under’ a very valuable proposition.
