Champions Chelsea let off the leash


The race for the Premier League title is over, leaving Chelsea with an opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves at home to Watford on Monday evening.

Ominously, Blues head coach Antonio Conte believes that there is plenty more to come from his side, who will surely be sent out to try and entertain their adoring fans at Stamford Bridge.

The 20/83 for a home win offers little by way of value, so you might have to delve a little deeper to find a tempting offer.

With the Blues certain to be liberated slightly and possibly set to field both Diego Costa and Michy Batshuayi in attack, Chelsea to win 3-0 at 29/4 is certainly worth consideration, as is 57/20 for the hosts to score three times in the game.

Batshuayi and Costa both netted in the final 10 minutes of the game at Vicarage Road earlier this season, when the champions fought back to secure a 2-1 victory.

Also worth keeping an eye on are the goals conceded markets for the Blues, who are likely to hand a role to veteran John Terry as he prepares to bring the curtain down on his illustrious Stamford Bridge career.

Chelsea have kept three clean sheets in a row and are 11/10 to win the game without conceding a goal, while they can be backed at 11/10 to keep a fourth consecutive clean sheet.

The Hornets make the short trip to the capital having fallen to four consecutive defeats, although they are safe in the top flight for another season.

They have also failed to score in those four losses, meaning that Watford to score under 0.5 goals at 11/10 could be of interest.

The odds of 13/10 for the visitors to score once in the game is another option, especially if Terry, who has featured very little for much of the campaign, is given a rare start.

However, just where that goal is going to come from is something of a mystery, with Troy Deeney having found the net only once in his last eight games.

The visitors will be boosted by the knowledge that they drew 2-2 at Stamford Bridge last season, but their previous five visits to Chelsea have all ended in defeat.
