STAR PREVIEW Watford v Chelsea

first_img[dropcap]F[/dropcap]rustratingly got everything right about the West Ham v Aston Villa game last night but just picked the wrong club from the golf bag in terms of having a bet. The 2-0 outcome was fine – but I needed West Ham to be ahead at half-time which surely they should have been given Jordan Ayew’s sending off after just 17 minutes for a stupid challenge.Two more Premier League games tonight: Everton taking on Newcastle at Goodison and Watford playing host to Chelsea at Vicarage Road which is the live game on BT SPORT (7.45pm). The reverse fixture finished 2-2 at Stamford Bridge in December in a match where both teams had the lead and it was also Guus Hiddink’s first game of his latest tenure.Chelsea are undoubtedly playing better football under Hiddink but the reaction and celebrations to their 5-1 FA Cup win over the MK Dons seems to have been over-cooked somewhat.The fact they are a shade of odds-on with Star Sports for this fixture is a little insulting to Watford who are four points clear of them in the Premier League table with both sides having played 23 games. League tables don’t tend to lie after 23 games and it looks as if, again, Chelsea are being priced on former glories rather than current form.Odion Ighalo remains a potent force for the Hornets and has now scored seven goals in his last seven Premier League appearances at Vicarage Road.Watford’s head coach Quique Sanchez Flores said: “Chelsea are playing well, but we are also in the same condition, recuperating good feelings to keep a good position in the league, so I think for sure it will be a very tough match.”Watford v ChelseaPremier League19:45 BT Sport 1 / BT Sport 1 HD / BT Sport Ultra HDHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Dec 2015 PREMIER Chelsea 2-2 WatfordJan 2015 FA CUP Chelsea 3-0 WatfordJan 2010 FA CUP Chelsea 5-0 WatfordFeb 2009 FA CUP Watford 1-3 ChelseaMar 2007 PREMIERSHIP Watford 0-1 ChelseaNov 2006 PREMIERSHIP Chelsea 4-0 WatfordJan 2004 FA CUP Chelsea 4-0 WatfordJan 2004 FA CUP Watford 2-2 ChelseaFeb 2000 PREMIERSHIP Chelsea 2-1 WatfordSep 1999 PREMIERSHIP Watford 1-0 ChelseaIt has to be the DRAW for me tonight at around 13/5 with Star Sports.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK DRAW for 7 points at around 13/5 with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: PROFIT 3.49 POINTSWhat’s your view?
