Charlie Nicholas has made a strange prediction for the Chelsea vs Watford clash this weekend.
He said, “I have to hold my hands up and say ‘wow’ at Chelsea. A batch of youngsters are playing superbly and the balance is spot on, even without N’Golo Kante. If Tammy Abraham doesn’t score, you have Christian Pulisic, then you have Callum Hudson-Odoi and Willian back in decent form too. They are really good to watch – the Roman Abramovich vision has been waiting to get to this sort of style.”
They have won the Premier League a number of times as well as the Champions League, but this is a whole new experience for them. I said it had the potential to be a roller coaster at Burnley, but they keep rolling teams over. How can you go against Chelsea at the moment, just because of the way they go about their business?
By all accounts, Watford sounded like they were great for the first 20 and awful for the last 70 minutes against Bournemouth. Abdoulaye Doucoure and Gerard Deulofeu must get into these games. I keep getting the Chelsea games wrong, but if I go for them here, I may end up regretting it again, but my, they are good to watch.
He predicted a 2-2 draw.
