The batman got the fans cheering after he got booed by the fans after Morata was subbed off for Michy but his heroes got his team to a thrilling 4-2 win over Watford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Chelsea started the match in stunning style as Pedro’s wonderstrike, the 8000th goal scored in the club’s 112-year history, put them ahead in the 12th minute.

Watford, who had claimed 10 points out of 12 on the road under Marco Silva before Saturday’s meeting, responded before the break through Doucoure’s strike and Pereyra put them ahead just after half-time.

Azpilicueta then popped up to convert the third before Batshuayi added a fourth in injury time, giving Conte a much-needed boost and lifting his side above Watford into fourth in the table.
