Sub Michy Batshuayi netted a brace as Chelsea came from behind to secure a vital win at home to Watford.
Chelsea got off to a great start, with Pedro scoring on 12 minutes, courtesy of a superb curling effort from outside the box.
However, the Hornets were sharp from the off and bagged a deserved equaliser just before the break, with Abdoulaye Doucoure netting after a long-throw.
The Blues’ backline were shaky throughout the encounter and the title-holders went behind soon after the re-start, with Roberto Pereyra firing home on 49 minutes.
With the hosts reeling, Watford should’ve extended their lead, with Richarlison guilty of a couple of dreadful misses.
The visitors would ultimately rue those misses, with sub Batshuayi making it 2-2 on 71 minutes from a Pedro cross.
Cesar Azpilicueta, playing as a right wing-back, then popped up in the box to make it 3-2 and send the home fans wild.
There was still time to Batshuayi to net his second of the game as the Londoners pulled off a dramatic victory against a Watford side who deserved to get something out of the game.
The win, which takes some of the pressure off Antonio Conte, sees Chelsea go fourth, nine points behind leaders Man City.
