Chelsea 4-3 Watford: Antonio Conte’s side emerge victorious after last minute Cesc Fabregas winner [Best Tweets]

A late goal from Cesc Fabregas helped Chelsea narrowly edge past Watford in a 7-goal-thriller at Stamford Bridge to record their 29th League victory of the season.

Goals from John Terry, Michy Batshuayi, Cesar Azpilicueta and ultimately Cesc Fabregas proved to be enough for Antonio Conte’s Champions to see off Walter Mazzarri’s Watford, who finished the match with 10 men after Sebastian Prödl was sent off in the dying moments.

Chelsea took the lead through Terry, Azpilicueta and Batshuayi in the first 50 minutes, but threw away a 3-1 lead after Etienne Capoue, Daryl Janmaat and substitute Stefano Okaka scored for the visitors to bring the Hornet back on level terms by the 75th minute.

Ultimately, Cesc Fabregas had to be sent on by Antonio Conte to save a heavily rotated Chelsea side and in the 88th minute, the Spaniard scored the winner to send the Chelsea faithful at Stamford Bridge into a frenzy.

Some pre-match shenanigans by the twitter fashion police, regarding Kenedy’s new bleached blonde look.

When the commentator confused Michy Batshuayi for Nathaniel Chalobah. Not the first time to happen this season.

Chelsea captain John Terry opened the scoring in the 22nd minute with a towering header from Willian’s cross.

Only minutes later, an error from the Englishman on the opposite end gifted Etienne Capoue the ball and allowed him to equalize.

12 minutes later, Cesar Azpilicueta came to the rescue and with a fine strike from distance, helped Chelsea recover the lead.

what a prediction this turned out to be,

Title winner Michy Batshuayi nets his second goal in 4 days. Incidentally, his first Premier League goal had come at Vicarage road, when the Blues faced Watford away in a 1-2 win at the start of the season.

2 minutes after Michy Batshuayi scored Chelsea’s third, Daryl Janmaat skipped past the Chelsea defence and finished beautifully past Begovic to make it 3-2.

Stefano Okaka, who was brought on in the 71st minute, capitalised on confusion between the Chelsea defence to poke in the equaliser with only his third touch of the game. 74 minutes passed, 3-3.

Then, Cesc Fabregas was brought on in the 79th minute and 9 minutes later in a bid to try and fix the situation, and that’s exactly what he did.
