It was a complete demolition at Vicarage Road after Watford stunned Chelsea by 4-1 in a Premier League match on Monday night to give new coach Javi Garcia his first home win of the season.
The match which could seal the fate of Chelsea coach Antonio Conte, took a massive turn around for the Blues as Tiemoue Bakayoko was given his marching orders after receiving a second bookable offence in the 38 minutes.
Four minutes later, Watford was awarded a penalty after Gerard Delofeu was brought down in the box by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Troy Deeney made no mistake in converting the spot kick.
The second period was more intriguing as the Hornets took advantage of Chelsea’s 10 men but Antonio Conte’s side got back into the match with a brilliant piece of skill from Eden Hazard who scored a magnificent equalizer.
The home side restored their lead with three goals in a space of six minutes after Janmaart combined with Richarlison to put his team back in the lead two minutes later.
Delofeu put the lead beyond the champions with Watford’s third and before the final whistle, Roberto Pereyra finished off for a famous victory over the Blues.
Conte’s men have now conceded seven goals in two matches with a result that left the London side with 50 points and remain in the fourth position.
The Yellow Army is now 11th on the table with 30 points after Garcia’s priceless win over the defending champions, their first in a century.
With the defeat at Watford, Conte’s future at Stamford Bridge is now in doubt as the Italian will be worried about his defence when they face Barcelona on February 13, 2018, in a Champions League tie.
