Conte's Chelsea hit 23-year low in Watford humbling

Conte's Chelsea hit 23-year low in Watford humbling

The Blues boss finds himself on the brink following a 4-1 defeat at Vicarage Road, which saw the Premier League champions crumble with 10 men
Chelsea’s humbling 4-1 defeat at Watford has seen them hit a 23-year low in the Premier League under Antonio Conte.

A 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth on home soil had seen uncomfortable questions asked of the Italian amid reports of dressing room unrest
Conte would have been hoping for a positive response against Watford, but he got another abject display.
Chelsea’s cause was delivered a damaging blow inside half-an-hour when Tiemoue Bakayoko was sent off.
There was brief hope when Eden Hazard cancelled out Troy Deeney’s penalty eight minutes from time, but a late collapse saw the visitors leave with their tail between their legs .
Not since 1995 have the Blues suffered such crushing defeats in back-to-back top-flight fixtures, with the wheels having fallen off in some style for the reigning champions.

While the Blues now face another testing period of reflection, with Conte’s position under serious threat, Watford can bask in the claiming of a prized scalp.
The Hornets do not have the best of records against Chelsea, but they are now revelling in a first victory over the west London giants in 14 attempts — with that sequence stretching back to a 1-0 win in September 1999.
