Watford Vs Chelsea (4 - 1) On 5th February 2018 by iwaeda: 2:43pm On Feb 02, 2018
Chelsea will be only the third opponent for Premier League new boy Javi Gracia, who replaced Marco Silva as Watford coach on 21 January. A defensive midfielder and well-travelled coach, the Spaniard’s most recent port of call was Rubin Kazan. The Volgans were ninth in Russia’s 16-team Premier League when he departed by mutual consent last year.
Gracia has never previously encountered the Blues, but the 47-year-old has a reputation for meticulous preparations and appears happy to change his tactics according to the opposition. Such adaptability may ease his initiation into England’s top flight, but his injury-ravaged team are in a difficult run of form.
The Hertfordshire club remain 11th going into this weekend, four points above the bottom three, despite losing eight of their past 12 league games and winning one.
Gracia’s first match in charge was a 0-1 FA Cup defeat at Southampton in which the visitors edged possession, and the second, away to Stoke on Wednesday, was a goalless draw. The Hornets managed two shots on target in each outing.
Watford’s late January signings may indicate the squad requirements he quickly identified. Defensive midfielder Didier Ndong has arrived from Sunderland, where he was the club record signing in 2016. Anderlecht’s Belgium Under-21, Dodi Lukebakio, and Gerard Deulofeu, previously of Everton, on loan from Barcelona, are both wingers.
Chelsea’s latest new arrivals were introduced the crowd at half-time on Wednesday. Emerson Palmieri, a pacy, skilful, Sao Paulo-born left-back, partnered Toni Rudiger at previous club Roma. Injury ruled the 23-year-old out for much of this season and he is eligible to play for the Blues in the Champions League. Incidentally, the Brazilian-Italian joins with pre-WW1 half-back George Lake and current Derby loan Kasey Palmer, to complete the famous prog-rock group, ELP – ask your parents.
France striker Olivier Giroud, Arsenal’s fifth-top scoring player in the Premier League, is also able to feature for the Blues in Europe, despite playing and scoring in the Gunners’ Europa League campaign.
Before the knockout phase, each club is permitted to add one player to their UEFA squad who has transferred from a club competing in a different completion. The 6ft 4in frontman has already netted 12 goals over 29 appearances in Europe’s elite competition.
Giroud will don the occasionally history-making number 18 shirt, as worn by Erland Johnson when he earned a match-winning penalty in the 1996/97 FA Cup replay with Leicester, and Wayne Bridge when he scored that Champions League winner at Highbury in 2004.
Chelsea have made other noteworthy winter window signings over the previous decade, including: Branislav Ivanovic (2008), Fernando Torres and
David Luiz (both 2011), Gary Cahill and Kevin De Bruyne (both 2012, although De Bruyne remained at Genk for the rest of the season), Kurt Zouma (2013, but remained at St-Etienne), and Mo Salah and Nemanja Matic (both 2014)

Chelsea loaned out 36players can't he just recall 5 of dem that are doin well and start playing them ni.
he sold ake, Costa and matic loaned out van ginkel, loftus cheek,kenedy, bat, zouma and Tammy all dis players can fill the void that is affecting Chelsea dis season.

I pray Hazard doesn't play as false 9. Hazard plays better behind a striker. I also hope Bakayoko and Rudiger are on bench.
