Worth mentioning: Chelsea took a big step towards the Europa League final on Thursday, as they drew 1:1 in Germany with Eintracht Frankfurt. That draw made it three in a row for the London outfit and they have won just one of their last five outings. The Blues are undefeated in their previous eight home matches and recorded six victories in the process.
Watford will probably use the two remaining league games as a preparation for the FA cup final with Manchester City in mid-May. The team has nothing to play for, as they avoided relegation long time ago and their best chance for European football is the aforementioned meeting with the Citizens. Four of the last five Watford matches witnessed goals at both ends, while three featured over 2,5 goals.
