Stat Attack: Chelsea vs Watford | Premier League

Watford travel to the capital to face Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Roy Hodgson takes his relegated side to Stamford Bridge for one last game as the season comes to an end, which sees Chelsea finish inside the Champions League places. 

Third place is all but wrapped up, but Thomas Tuchel will want to end the 2021/22 season with a win to bring the home league victories tally to nine.
