The champions were not finished, however, and added a fourth in the fifth minute of stoppage time through Batshuayi as they returned to winning ways in the Premier League. Chelsea are one point behind Tottenham Hotspur, who will host Liverpool on Sunday.

However, the second was just around the corner as a minute later Pereya was allowed the freedom of the Chelsea penalty area to slot home after Watford had cut the home side's defence to ribbons.
