Chelsea vs Watford: Key stats & facts as Blues seek fourth consecutive win against the Hornets

Chelsea will be hoping to quickly move on from their disappointing loss to West Ham in midweek when they host Watford on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. 

Frank Lampard's men fell to a surprise 3-2 away loss to relegation-threatened Hammers, and they face another side in the same zone in the Hornets. 

There are no fresh injuries to the Blues squad, and just like the West Ham match, it should be an easy match on paper.

But can they pick a win that could boost their Champions League hopes?
