Gracia revels in 'unforgettable' win over Chelsea

Wednesday, 07 Feb, 2018

"The players have to take responsibility. We played with fear".

"You always work for nights like this but this is unforgettable", Gracia told Sky Sports.

"We are happy for these three points, the team fight at the beginning and we are worth this win". "A great victory and a great match. I'm so happy for my first game at home".

Supporters of the Chelsea soccer team were caught singing anti-Semitic songs during a game held five days after the British club launched a campaign to stamp out anti-Semitism among its fans.

But the Hornets responded with three goals in the final seven minutes.

Having been let off by Watford's wayward finishing, Chelsea weren't handed such a reprieve from referee Mike Dean as Bakayoko's miserable first season in England continued.

If the Blues are in need of inspiration from off the bench, then they also have Cesc Fabregas and Danny Drinkwater at their disposal.

However, that did little to stem Watford's tide and they went in front when Thibaut Courtois brought down Deulofeu as he rounded the goalkeeper. Watford captain Deeney made no mistake in converting the penalty.

Dele Alli was suspended for one game for making a similar gesture during an England game previous year.

An individual moment of magic from Hazard gave Chelsea hope when he curled into the far corner from 25 yards for his 13th goal of the season.

Tiemoue Bakayoko had another night to forget as he was sent off in the 30th minute at Vicarage Road. Deulofeu sealed the points two minutes later when he fired across Courtois with Chelsea's exhausted defence pulled apart.
