Chelsea travel to Watford for their next Premier League game this weekend and the Blues will be looking to build on their last-gasp win over cross-town rivals West Ham United on Monday.

Chelsea picked up a 2-1 win over the Hammers thanks to a late winner from star striker Diego Costa.

Since the arrival of the Italian manager Antonio Conte, Chelsea have looked quite well organised at the back and it could be a major asset for them in away games this season.

As for Watford, they had to work hard for a point against Southampton in their opening game after Ben Watson was sent off with less than 15 minutes remaining.

Watford have failed to beat Chelsea in any competitive match since 1999 and Conte will be hoping to extend that run this week.
