Narrow escape for Chelsea at Vicarage Road

Chelsea travelled to Vicarage Road on Wednesday where they could only manage a 2-1 victory over determined Watford side.
The visitor took the lead in the added minutes of the first half (45'+1) via Hazard's strike following a through pass he received from Kovacic, he also made Ben Foster to crawl on the grass be sending the ball to the back of the net with his left foot, but Roberto Maximiliano Pereyra equalised the goal two minutes later (45'+3) via a sublime strike, a goal that was assisted by Holebas. The first half ended 1-1.
In the 58th minute of the encounter Chelsea got their second and winning  goal from the spot following a hard challenge on Hazard from Watford Goalkeeper Ben Foster, and thanks to Eden Hazard well taken penalty kick, sending the goalkeeper to a wrong direction. Chelsea was able to defend the goal for the remaining duration of the encounter. Chelsea are still in 4th position on the English Premier League Log even after the win.
