Hakim Ziyech’s strike less than 20 minutes from time secured a victory for Chelsea at vicarage road which keeps them top of the Premier League.
Mason Mount’s cool finish put Chelsea in front after Alonso pulled the ball back for Havertz, who squared the ball for the England international to slot home.
Two minutes before half time the game was level though when Moussa Sissoko played Emmanuel Dennis through on goal and he coolly waited for Antonio Rudiger to challenge him before playing the ball through his legs and into the net.
Second-half substitute Ziyech sealed the game with a rocket into the roof of the net after a fine pull back from Mount.
Watford were intent on not letting Chelsea relax in possession from the first whistle and Mendy had to produce a fantastic save from Azpilicueta’s inadvernet shot from Kiko’s cross.
The game was delayed for almost half an hour while waiting for a fan treated for a cardiac arrest to be stabilised.
Watford kept up the pressure after the game restarted.
The Hornets pressed for an equaliser in the closing stages with Mendy being required to tip over a late rocket free kick from Juraj Kucka and last-ditch challenges required to stop further efforts on goal.
Though Chelsea got the three points, Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis was given the man-of-the-match award for his brilliant display. It is interesting to know that, statistically, only Mo Salah has had a greater impact in the first ten games of the season than Dennis.
Watford will be hoping for a better result when they face Manchester City at the weekend, while Chelsea will definitely want to continue their excellent form against West Ham on Saturday.
