Conte Hails Chelsea's Spirit, Commitment In Watford Win

But a brace from Batshuayi, who replaced Alvaro Morata on the hour mark, and a header from Cesar Azpilicueta ensured Chelsea got back to winning ways and Conte was quick to praise the performance of the Belgium worldwide striker as well as his fellow substitutes Zappacosta and Willian. We didn't create many chances in the first half, it is true, but we controlled the game and Chelsea started to play on the counter attack.

"We had to dig in until the last minute and we showed our spirit", Azpilicueta said.

"I'm proud of how we played, but of course I'm really frustrated".

Roma penned Chelsea in their own half for much of the thrilling 3-3 Champions League draw in midweek, and the same happened against Watford as Chelsea spent nearly 30 per cent of the match in their defensive third. In the second half, for 35 to 40 minutes, I saw one team playing. We scored the second goal after a fantastic chance for Richarlison and after the goal, [we had] two or three chances and we need to score to kill the match.

The Blues came back from behind to win for the first time this season, moving them up above their opponents and into fourth place.

The hosts took a controversial lead when they were awarded a corner despite the ball appearing to have come off the foot of Chelsea's Eden Hazard.

Watford was the better side for much of the first period and netted a deserved equalizer in first-half stoppage time.

Batshuayi was given two good chances to add to his tally and put Chelsea back ahead only to miss the target on each occasion.

The home side leveled in the 71st when Batshuayi headed Pedro's cross from the right into the far corner.

The home side had a brilliant chance to double their lead in the 16th minute when Alvaro Morata released Cesc Fabregas inside the Watford box, but the Spaniard could not beat Heurelho Gomes.

Another substitute, Willian, had a hand in Chelsea's third as he crossed for Azpilicueta to head home.
