Watford conceded three on the road at Chelsea on Saturday evening, losing their third Premier League game in a row.

Here's how we rated their individual performances.


Ben Foster - 7

Things could have been much uglier had Foster had a worse match. Made some vital stops to keep the scores down.


Adrian Mariappa - 5

Had a tricky evening dealing with Christian Pulisic and most of Chelsea's dangerous attacks came down his flank, especially in the second-half. 


Christian Kabasele - 6

Absorbed some Chelsea pressure and made one or two good challenges, but failed to track runners too frequently and got easily pulled out of position.


Craig Dawson - 5

Lost Giroud for the first goal from which Watford never really recovered. Was bullied a bit by the Frenchman.


Kiko Femenia - 4

Not a strong display from the full-back who found life very difficult against Willian before he was replaced.


Etienne Capoue - 4

A clumsy offering from the midfielder, who picked up a silly yellow card in the first-half and made a number of poor decisions.


Nathaniel Chalobah - 6

The better of the two deep-lying midfielders. Linked attack and defence well and generated a bit of forward momentum. Nevertheless, didn't make life too uncomfortable for the hosts.


Abdoulaye Doucoure - 5

Got back and pitched in with the defending on occasion and battled in the centre, but again was lacking in creativity when in attack.


Will Hughes - 6

Fought well and did the things that fans have come to expect of him in recent weeks. Being deployed out of position did him no real favours however.


Ismaila Sarr - 5

Struggled to get involved in the game, with Reece James marking him dilligently.


Troy Deeney - 6

Didn't do a lot wrong during the game, but the team looked undeniably stronger without him on the pitch.




Danny Welbeck - 7 

Injected some much-needed urgency into Watford's game and looked lively in attack. Created a couple of decent chances that perhaps he might've taken had he been on top of his game. 


Tom Cleverley - 5

The team looked sharper once he came on for Deeney, but that was more to do with the change in shape than anything else. 


Adam Masina - 6

Offered much more in attack than Femenia and pushed his team forward. Made some poor decisions, shooting from range when other options might have been better.


Roberto Pereyra - N/A

Joined the game too late to make an impact.
