Another cruise for lively Blues at winless Hornets

Another failure to win on Saturday has left Watford rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, and while they are moving in the right direction it’s already a fight for survival. 

The Hornets have drawn their last three games, but an 8-0 battering at Manchester City prior to that suggests they could still struggle against the top teams in the division.

Chelsea have come a long way since the 4-0 humbling at Old Trafford on the opening day and another thrilling display on Saturday extended their winning streak to four league games. 

The Blues have scored an impressive 16 league goals on the road this season but have shipped 11 and, despite winning four away games on the trot, Chelsea are yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels. 

Best bet
Chelsea to win and both teams to score

Key stats
  • West Brom have lost one of their last 10 matches against Stoke
Expert verdict
West Brom have lost just two games this season and they should be too strong for Stoke at the Hawthorns. The Baggies are top following Leeds’ defeat to Sheffield Wednesday and they can cement their place in pole position against a side who have won just one of their last five away league fixtures.
