This afternoon Chelsea welcome Watford, to Stamford Bridge, for their penultimate Premier League fixture of the 2018 / 2019 season.
Despite shipping a plethora of criticism since taking over the managerial hot-seat, at Chelsea, Maurizio Sarri should, perhaps, be praised for guiding the club into a position where a win today, followed by a win away to Leicester City next week, will see Champions League football return to Stamford Bridge.
Now whether, considering Chelsea’s record when it comes to managerial appointments, be enough to ensure he remains in the post for next season, remains to be seen.
However, Watford arrive in our neck of the woods having had a pretty decent season themselves, they’ve more than consolidated their Premier League status whilst also having reached the FA Cup Final, where a date with Manchester City awaits them.
A win today should not be taken for granted, Watford are more than capable of springing the shock result that might end those aspirations of a top-four finish.
As is the norm, we’re running our Match Day Moments feature where we invite you to express your views on a number of subjects including, but not limited to:
1 – The build-up to the big game.
2 – The starting eleven selected by Maurizio Sarri.
3 – The action as it happens at Stamford Bridge.
4 – Your thoughts in the immediate period following the sounding of the final whistle.
Here’s hoping that we enter the final day of the 2018 / 2019 Premier League season with our hopes of a top-four finish well and truly alive.
