'It's unfair' - Silva says Watford should have beaten Chelsea

A brace from substitute Michy Batshuayi and a goal each from Pedro Rodriguez and Cesar Azpilicuerta, secured the hard-fought win for Chelsea.

Chelsea have named Tiemoue Bakayoko in the starting line-up for Saturday's Premier League clash with Watford. It is six points below leader Manchester City, which hosts Burnley later.

The Hornets are flying high in the Premier League after eight matches and came into their match at Stamford Bridge full of confidence following their come-from-behind win against Arsenal at Vicarage Road last weekend.

"I feel a lot of pressure but never the pressure that the club might sack me", said Conte, whose tenure at Chelsea has been the subject of speculation, given the club's history of dispensing quickly with coaches when results start to falter.

"We played our game and in the second half for 40 minutes there was one team playing on the pitch". We scored the second goal after a fantastic chance for Richarlison and after the goal, [we had] two or three chances and we need to score to kill the match.

This one was particularly timely, with Chelsea seeking their first win since September - they've lost to Manchester City and Crystal Palace, and drawn with Roma in their past three matches - and Watford proving a unsafe opponent in the early exchanges.

And again Twitter users showed no mercy to the Brazilian forward who has bagged three goals so far this season.

Watford was the better side for much of the first period and netted a deserved equalizer in first-half stoppage time. David Luiz attempted to head the ball out but it dropped down for Doucoure to fire home through a crowd of players.

Watford will be left to rue a shocking miss from Richarlison, who inexplicably shot wide with the goal at his mercy early in the second-half.
