    • Manager praises ‘small details’ after 3-0 win against Watford
    • ‘To be ahead of Man United, we have to be pretty happy’

    Frank Lampard said Chelsea will have to deal with pressure for the rest of the season after boosting their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League with a comfortable 3-0 win over Watford.

    Chelsea kept their nerve after seeing Leicester and Manchester United pick up wins earlier in the day, holding on to fourth spot and bouncing back from the midweek defeat to West Ham by swatting Watford aside thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud, Willian and Ross Barkley.

  • Sat, 04 Jul 2020 21:07:20 +0000: Olivier Giroud puts Chelsea on path to comfortable win over Watford - Chelsea | The Guardian

    At a chilly, damp, echoey Stamford Bridge Chelsea had too much guile and craft for an eager but limited Watford team.

    Goals from Olivier Giroud and Willian towards the end of the first half were enough to overwhelm opponents who spent much of the opening 80 minutes crouched behind a dogged defensive guard.

  • Sat, 04 Jul 2020 20:53:37 +0000: Chelsea 3-0 Watford: Premier League – as it happened - Chelsea | The Guardian

    Goals from Olivier Giroud, Willian and Ross Barkley gave Chelsea a very comfortable victory at Stamford Bridge

    Peep peep! Chelsea move back into the top four with a solid victory over Watford. It was never really in doubt from the moment Olivier Giroud gave them the lead with a smart finish in the first half. Willian’s penalty made it 2-0 at the break, and Ross Barkley decorated the cake in injury time.

    Ross Barkley completes a comfortable win for Chelsea. It was a nice move on the left, involving Loftus-Cheek, Pulisic and then Azpilicueta. His precise cutback found Barkley, who controlled the ball with his right foot and belted it into the net with his left.

    90+1 min Four minutes of added time.

    90 min At the other end, Welbeck dances away from Christensen on the byline and slides the ball towards Hughes in the six-yard box. It ricochets off Loftus-Cheek and behind for what should have been a corner, but was given as a goalkick.

    90 min Pereyra gives the ball to Azpilicueta. He plays in Pulisic, whose shot is superbly blocked by Kabasele (I think).

    88 min A brilliant cross from James is headed wide from close range by Loftus-Cheek, who got ahead of the ball and was therefore unable to steer it on target. It was a great chance.

    86 min No penalty.

    85 min Pulisic appeals unsuccesfully for a penalty after wriggling between Mariappa and Kabasele and going over. It’s being checked by VAR. I doubt it’ll be overturned, even though it was a clumsy challenge.

    85 min Watford have been much better in the past 15 minutes, though it looks like it’s too little too late.

    83 min Another Watford chance. Roberto Pereyra on, Ismaila Sarr off.

    81 min: Good save from Kepa! That was Watford’s best chance of the match. It was created by Chalobah, who robbed the dithering Gilmour and played an angled through pass to find Welbeck in the area. He tried to pass the ball into the bottom corner, and Arrizabalaga got down smartly to his left to push the ball away.

    81 min Chelsea’s next game is away to Crystal Palace on Tuesday. Watford are at home to Norwich on the same night.

    80 min Masina’s free-kick bounces awkwardly in front of Arrizabalaga, who holds it as he falls to his right.

    77 min N’Golo Kante has pulled something and is coming off. Billy Gilmour replaces him.

    76 min A triple change for Chelsea. Tammy Abraham, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi replace Giroud, Mount and Willian.

    75 min Hughes’ outswinging free kick from the left is headed over by Dawson, under pressure from Zouma. It was a half chance at best.

    74 min Masina’s long-range shot is comfortably held by Arrizabalaga.

    72 min A better attack from Watford. Cleverley plays a good pass down the right to Sarr, whose excellent cross is put behind by Christensen at the near post.

    69 min Time for the drinks break.

    68 min Zouma’s towering header, from the resulting corner, is comfortably saved by Foster.

    68 min A good effort from Willian, who zips infield from the left and curls a shot towards the far corner that is pushed behind by the diving Foster.

    64 min Two more changes for Watford. Tom Cleverley and Adam Masina replace Kiko Femenia and Troy Deeney.

    63 min Giroud’s shot is blocked. This is absurdly one-sided, like watching a Manchester City game.

    62 min Azpilicueta’s cross is headed down by Giroud to no-one in particular, and Watford clear. But the ball keeps coming back at their defence.

    59 min Willian’s pass deflects through to Giroud, whose low shot from a tight angle is blocked by Foster.

    58 min Watford have barely crossed the halfway line in the second half. In an attempt to make something happen, Nigel Pearson brings on Danny Welbeck for Etienne Capoue.

    56 min Mount combines with Pulisic and crosses dangerously into the six-yard box, where Dawson stretches to put the ball behind for a corner.

    53 min It feels like a matter of time before Chelsea get a third.

    50 min “Bob,” says Mac Millings. “Please could you stop saying things like ‘I still think Watford will stay up’. It is a scientific fact that you are the Hornets’ biggest jinx, with this, from the January 4th FA Cup 3rd Round Clockwatch, being Exhibit bleedin’ A:

    “‘GOAL! Watford 3-1 Tranmere (Jennings 65)
    Connor Jennings gets a consolation goal for Tranmere.’

    49 min Mariappa is booked for hacking Pulisic.

    49 min Mount’s adroit volley from the edge of the area is well blocked by Kabasele.

    47 min Pulisic slaps a shot over the bar from the edge of the area.

    46 min Peep peep! Chelsea begin the second half.

    “I agree with Rob Coughlin about Pulisic,” says Benjamin Park. “The feeling I get is similar to when Hazard got the ball - excitement, though obviously not yet at Hazard’s level. What gets me every time is the accent. Not that I have a problem with it (says every racist ever), I’m just not used to it. American accent in a top team in the Premier League.”

    “Is it me, or is Pulisic the best player on Chelsea?” says Rob Coughlin. “An American, the best player on Chelsea? And I don’t mean that to slight the other CFC talent. It’s pretty obvious.”

    He’s certainly been their best attacking player in the past few weeks, by a fair distance. He’s a brilliant player, with a lovely direct simplicity to his play.

    Half time chit chat “Seems to me that despite Man U’s recent performances, Chelsea will be challenging Liverpool & Man City before them,” says Mike MacKenzie. “Lampard has the right approach and with Ziyech & Werner arriving they should have much stronger attack. If Abramovich funds more transfers, Chelsea could be very competitive. As Lampard says, though. they need to be consistent which takes time to develop.”

    Yeah, I think both teams are still a fair way off challenging for the title, certainly another season. They are going in the right direction, though, and there’s a lot to admire in the way both Lampard and Solskjaer have prioritised youth.

    Peep peep! A very comfortable half for Chelsea, who lead through a smart finish from Olivier Giroud and a penalty from Willian. It’s hard to see Watford getting back into the match from here.

    45+1 min Three minutes of added time.

    45 min I still think Watford will stay up. They should beat Norwich at home in their next game, and I can’t see Bournemouth or Aston Villa picking up too many points for the rest of the season.

    Willian scores with aplomb, and Chelsea are going back into the top four.

    PENALTY TO CHELSEA! Pulisic scurries into the area and cuts back inside Capoue, who just runs him over. A gormless piece of defending, and a clear penalty.

    41 min Deeney fouls Kante 25 yards from goal. Mount’s free-kick hits the wall.

    40 min James’ cross just evades the stretching Giroud and is palmed away by Foster. Chelsea are well on top now.

    38 min Willian’s free-kick hits the wall.

    37 min Giroud is fouled by Kabasele, 22 yards from goal. It’s slightly to the right of centre, a great position for Willian.

    36 min Chalobah’s corner is headed away by Giroud.

    35 min Sarr’s low cross is put behind by James. Set-pieces are probably Watford’s best chance of a goal tonight.

    33 min Dawson plays an excellent pass to Femenia, whose cross is headed away by Kante. Chelsea look comfortable in defence.

    30 min Pulisic’s looping header is comfortably saved by Foster.

    Ross Barkley made the goal with a nice, short pass into the area towards Giroud. He dragged a first-time shot on the turn that took Foster by surprise and rolled gently into the far corner. It looked like Dawson had Giroud covered, but he slid to block a near-post shot and had gone past the ball when Giroud reversed it towards the other corner.

    What a clever finish from Olivier Giroud!

    25 min Chalobah clips a poor free-kick high over the bar. Time for a drinks break.

    24 min Mount fouls Capoue on the edge of the D. It looked a bit soft but Kevin Friend gave it, and this is a decent chance for Watford.

    21 min Capoue is booked for a foul on Giroud.

    19 min: Good save from Foster! That was nice play from Chelsea. The menacing Pulisic angled a fine pass down the inside-left channel to release Giroud, whose low shot across goal was kicked away by Foster.

    18 min Deeney is down after taking a knee in the back from Zouma. He’s going to carry on, though he’s moving gingerly.

    17 min Watford are working very hard defensively, and at the moment Chelsea are struggling to create opportunities.

    15 min After a good break from Chelsea involving Barkley and Pulisic, Willian’s deflected shot is comfortably held by Foster.

    13 min Dawson, still up the field after a Watford set-piece, drags a shot well wide from 25 yards.

    11 min Chelsea have had 72 per cent of the possession so far.

    10 min Pulisic turns smartly and dinks a pass over the defence to find Giroud on the left of the area. His lobbed cross is headed away.

    8 min Mount wins the first corner down the Chelsea left. Willian takes it short to Mount, whose overhit cross goes straight out of play.

    5 min After a minute and a half of faffing, Giroud slams the free-kick into the wall.

    3 min Barkley is fouled just outside the area by Capoue. The free-kick is a fair way to the right, so it’ll probably be a cross rather than a shot.

    1 min Peep peep! Watford kick off from left to right.

    “Rob, since when is 2-0 a thrashing, surreal or otherwise?” says M Stapleton. “It was Chelsea v Liverpool B in the FA Cup: a competition which barely registers a blip (or even a bleep) on Klopp’s radar. Not so much wearing your bias on your sleeve as carving it into your forearm.”

    I was talking about Watford’s 3-0 win over Liverpool. And yes, I accept your apology.

    Pre-match reading

    Related: Frank Lampard says Chelsea could solve set-piece problem by signing tall players

    Chelsea (4-3-3) Arrizabalaga; James, Christensen, Zouma, Azpilicueta; Barkley, Kante, Mount; Willian, Giroud, Pulisic.
    Substitutes: Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Gilmour, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Abraham, Hudson-Odoi.

    Watford (4-2-3-1) Foster; Mariappa, Kabasele, Dawson, Femenia; Chalobah, Capoue; Sarr, Doucoure, Hughes; Deeney.
    Substitutes: Gomes, Masina, Cathcart, Holebas, Cleverley, Pereyra, Welbeck, Joao Pedro, Gray.

    Chelsea are a funny old team. This season they have beaten Liverpool, Manchester City, Leicester, Wolves and done the double over Spurs. They have also taken one point from a possible 12 against Bournemouth and West Ham. Tonight’s match against Watford, which Chelsea need to win to return to the top four, is not a foregone conclusion.

    Watford need points even more than Chelsea. They have been in dodgy form either side of lockdown, with that surreal thrashing of Liverpool their only win in the last nine games. They are still outside the relegation places thanks to the winlessness of the teams below them, but that’s a dangerous thing to rely on. Watford have two big home games after this, against Norwich on Tuesday and Newcastle on Saturday. Anything tonight would be a bonus.

    • Italian club ready to offer £18m for left-back
    • Chelsea expected to demand larger fee

    Inter have opened negotiations with Chelsea over buying the left-back Emerson Palmieri. Antonio Conte is keen to add the Italy international to his squad, having signed him for Chelsea in January 2018, and the Serie A club are prepared to offer €20m (£18m).

    Emerson would consider the move because he is not a guaranteed starter at Chelsea and wants the best chance of being Italy’s first choice at next summer’s European Championship.

    • Chelsea have worst record in league for defending corners
    • Team relied on height to defend set pieces under Mourinho

    Frank Lampard has said Chelsea could attempt to solve their weaknesses at set pieces by signing tall players.

    Chelsea have the worst statistics in the Premier League when defending corners this season, with nine goals conceded from 110 deliveries, and their shortcomings were exposed during their 3-2 defeat against West Ham on Wednesday. Tomas Soucek dominated Lampard’s leaky defence at set pieces, heading in a Jarrod Bowen corner shortly after having another effort ruled out by VAR.

    Juventus receive a "substantial offer" for Brazilian left-back Alex Sandro, who is reported to be a target for Chelsea.

Roberto DiMatteo has been a busy manager for Chelsea so far in the transfer window with a number of new signings making their way to Stamford Bridge with the Italian looking to strengthen his squad considerably after a poor premier league season. One of the first signings of the season for the club was influential winger Eden Hazard for a fee believed to be around the twenty five million pound mark with the player signing a four year deal for the current European champions.

Another player is a hot favourite to be plying his trade at the bridge next season is the highly regarded Brazilian super kid Oscar although negotiations are still ongoing to bring him to England. The Internacional playmaker is thought to be costing Chelsea a fee of around twenty five million pounds but the deal according to DiMatteo is far from being completed and could fall through at any moment if the players current side decide to barter the price for his services. The player has stated that he would like to help his country compete in the Olympic games before he puts pen to paper so Chelsea fans may have to wait a little longer before they know if they have their man.

Wigan today have again rejected a third bid from Chelsea to bring in form winger Victor Moses to the bridge as the Lactics are doing their very best to keep their star player at the club for another season. Moses who has just a single year left on his current contract with Wigan is seen as the perfect addition to the Italians plans but the offer which is thought to be around the three and a half million pound mark is thought to be way short of the Lactics valuation of the player.

Frenchman Florent Malouda is another player whos future lies in the balance at Chelsea with the winger said to be wanting to hold showdown talks with the club after moving down the pecking order at the bridge. Malouda wishes to have his future clarified before the start of the season or he will look for pastures new with the player being strongly linked with Santos who feel the player would be perfect for their needs and could offer him first team football every week.

Chelsea now also face stern opposition for the signature of Brazilian playmaker Lucas Moura who is currently under contract with Sao Paulo from clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Inter Milan. The player is widely thought to be one of the hottest prospects in world football and has an outstanding record for his home side.
