A comprehensive second half performance saw Chelsea hand a 3-0 defeat to Watford to take firm control of the Premier League top four race.

Watford were the better of the two sides in the first half, getting close to finding the back of the net on a couple of occasions, with Troy Deeney forcing Kepa Arrizabalaga into one of the best saves of the season. But, Chelsea would go on to turn it around spectacularly post the interval.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek continued his fine form as he nodded in from Eden Hazard’s corner just moments into the second half. Three minutes later, Chelsea scored from another corner, with Hazard providing the assist to David Luiz this time. The win was finally rounded off 15 minutes from time as Gonzalo Higuain finished past Ben Foster after being sent through on goal by Pedro.

With the win in the bag, Gary Cahill was given some time on the pitch to say his goodbyes to the Stamford Bridge faithfuls, with his time at Chelsea to an end this summer. And, fans thanked the veteran defender for his services at the club.

Meanwhile, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Ruben Loftus-Cheek were hailed for their fantastic performances on the day.

Finally, fans also hailed the performance of Eden Hazard, who ran the show and was instrumental in a Chelsea win once again.
