Michael Owen is backing Chelsea FC to beat Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon.

Chelsea FC will be eager to make a swift return to winning ways following a 2-1 loss to Manchester United in the Carabao Cup fourth round on Wednesday night.

Frank Lampard’s side saw their seven-game winning run come to an end following Marcus Rashford’s double at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are in fourth place in the Premier League table after winning their last four top-flight outings.

Chelsea FC have a four-point cushion over Arsenal as Frank Lampard looks to secure Champions League football at Stamford Bridge next term.

The west London side will take on a winless Watford side at Vicarage Road in pursuit of their seventh top-flight victory of Lampard’s reign.

Watford are bottom of the Premier League table following five draws and five defeats.

Former Manchester United striker Owen is backing Chelsea FC to return to winning ways against Watford on Saturday afternoon.

“Watford remain the only side without a league win so far this season and the Hornets have not won in their last nine home league games,” Owen told BetVictor.

“It is hard to make a case for the hosts when inform Chelsea are the visitors to Vicarage Road on Saturday evening.

“At the time of writing – before the midweek League Cup tie with Manchester United – Frank Lampard’s side have won their last seven games in all competitions and have won their last four on the road in the league – scoring at least three times in the process.

“Chelsea shipped two late goals at Turf Moor last weekend which will have frustrated Lampard, but they are a side full of confidence and goals at present.”

Chelsea FC appointed Lampard as Maurizio Sarri’s replacement at Stamford Bridge back in July.

The Blues were 4-2 winners against Burnley last time out thanks to Christian Pulisic’s hat-trick.

Chelsea FC have scored 23 times but have conceded 16 goals in a largely positive start to the Premier League campaign.
