Chelsea star Willian released an interview with the club official website ahead of the match against Watford today.

The Brazilian winger firstly reflected on the win against West Ham in the Premier League opener:

“It was a good team performance and we deserved to win the game.

“We played very well and from the beginning of the game we put them under pressure and tried to score goals so it was good for us.”

Then he spoke about today’s game:

“Pre-season was very hard, we did double sessions every day but I feel good now. It was only the first game so everybody will improve, that’s natural, but I feel fresh and I’m ready for Watford.

“We have to do what we did in the game on Monday which was defend very well as a team. I think they were a little bit lucky with their goal but we reacted well and scored the second.

“We have to improve both defensively and in attack with every game but we were pleased with our defensive performance against West Ham.”

Willian also spoke about what changed with the new manager Antonio Conte:

“Some things have changed on the pitch but we respect the manager and the system he wants us to play.

“Sometimes, in a game, you have to decide what to do in a quick moment. For example I might have to move inside to get the ball and dribble past an opponent, you have to make quick decisions.

“The coach has improved our confidence. In training and at half-time he talks to us a lot which is very helpful.”

Chelsea will face Watford at the Vicarage Road in their second Premier League game under Antonio Conte‘s management today.

TEAM NEWS

Watford

Watford manager Walter Mazzarri had to face Ben Watson‘s red card in his Premier League opener against Southampton and will have to make some decision given that also Hornets‘ new signing Isaac Success won’t be fit for the game due to a leg muscle injury.

Troy Deeney alongside Odion Ighalo will likely play together as they did in their first game of the season.

Southampton Watford

Also Brice Dja Djédjé is not expected to make his debut at Vicarage Road could be left out of the starting lineup to face Chelsea.

Chelsea

Chelsea have the majority of their squad available for this fixture with Cesc Fabregas who is expected to be left out of the Blues’ starting XI again. N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic will likely play in the midfield besides Hazard, Oscar and Willian.

The lineup will reportedly be the same of the Premier League opener against West Ham.

Defender Kurt Zouma and midfielder Marco Van Ginkel are still recovering from injuries and are not expected to be selected in the squad for the game, alongside with Nigeria international John Obi Mikel, who is currently playing with his national team at the Olympic Games in Brazil and won’t be able to feature today.

PREDICTED LINEUPS

Chelsea: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Terry, Cahill, Ivanovic, Kante, Hazard, Matic, Oscar, Willian, Costa

Watford: Gomes; Cathcart, Prodl, Britos; Amrabat, Guedioura, Behrami, Capoue, Holebas; Deeney, Ighalo

Antonio Conte previewed the game against Watford speaking to media in Cobham today.

The Italian manager wanted to send a message to his players:

“Tomorrow will be a good game for my players: we know it won’t be easy because Watford are a strong team with good players. The two strikers play together very well and we must pay attention because it’s a dangerous game.

“We need to send the right message for our confidence. It’s important to face this game with the right intensity, right concentration and be very focused.”

Chelsea are facing Watford tomorrow and the game will be also the first Italian managers derby of this Premier League, where four Italian coaches are in charge: Antonio Conte at Chelsea, Claudio Ranieri at Leicester City, Francesco Guidolin at Swansea and Walter Mazzarri at Watford.

Conte and Mazzarri are familiar with each other having competed for trophies during their respective spells as managers of Juventus and Napoli.

“I saw him in the meeting for managers and I spoke with him and his assistant coach about this experience because it’s also a great challenge for him,” Conte revealed during his press conference to preview the match today.

“When we were in the Italian championship and we fought for the title, Juventus versus Napoli, everyone fights for his club, but our relationship is very normal. I have great respect for him and his work, he’s a great manager.

“Every manager has their own idea of football so for this reason every manager is different, not only me and Mazzarri. Every coach brings his idea of football, I studied for my own ideas and other managers studied for their own ideas.

“I will shake his hand, no problem. But I repeat: I saw him at the coaches’ meeting and spoke with him, with the assistant coach too.”

During the press conference to preview Watford’s game today, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked to comment Diego Costa‘s attitude on the pitch: the Spanish striker scored a late winner against West Ham last Monday also risked a red card after a dangerous challenge on Hammers’ goalkeeper Adrian:

“We all know Diego and he is a passionate footballer,” Conte explained

“Sometimes it seems he’s always on the edge when he plays but he’s a good guy and a good player.

“He puts his passion into football when he plays. I’m happy with his attitude and behaviour. We know he must pay attention in all situations because sometimes when many people talk about one player its difficult for him to play in a relaxed way as he knows he’s always at the centre of attention.”

Watford are keen on signing youngster Kenedy from Chelsea on a two season-long loan, according to WDSport.

The 20-year-old is not expected to play a key role in the Blues’ starting XI this season and Antonio Conte has reportedly told the Brazilian star he wants to let him move on loan.

Kenedy told FourFourTwo.com: ”I’m happy with my own performances so far in England,”

“I mean, it’s my first season in the Premier League and it’s not easy to adapt to the best football in the world. But I’m aware that I have plenty of room to improve and I’ll be better next season for sure.”

Then he added: “I want to play. I don’t really care if I’m playing as a full-back or a forward. As long as I’m on the pitch.”

Kenedy could follow in the footsteps of Chelsea loanee Natham Aké, who has played for the Hornets last season on loan before joining Bournemouth this summer.

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola was contacted by Hull City to become their new boss after Steve Bruce left the club after four years in charge.

The ex Italian player already coached West Ham between 2008 and 2010 and Watford during season 2012-2013 in the English football, without impressing.

The last club he managed was Al Arabi, in Qatar, during the past season but he was sacked in the end of June.

Now the ex Blues playmaker might have new chance to prove his value also in the dugout can come.

AFC Bournemouth have signed Chelsea youngster Nathan Ake on a season-long loan deal.

Ake joined Chelsea from Feyenoord in 2010 when he was just 15-years-old. Since then he has spent most of his time on loan away from Stamford Bridge. He spent some time at Reading where he made a few appearances but mostly he was with Watford, where he appeared 32 times, 24 of those were in the Premier League.

Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake spoke to AFCB.co.uk.

“We are delighted to welcome Nathan to AFC Bournemouth, For a player of his age he already has great experience in the Premier League and we believe he will bring a lot to our squad.

“He is an international player with great pedigree, so we are really excited to have him join us for the upcoming season.”

Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores has praised on loan Chelsea defender Nathan Ake for making a “very good” first impression as a player. 

Ake, 21, has made 23 first team appearances at Watford and has become an integral member of the squad. Playing primarily at left-back but has also stood in at centre back when needed.

The Watford boss believes Ake will want to head back to Chelsea next season in order to stake a place for a first team slot next season.

Flores went on to say “Ake is young and he is making a very good impression as a player.

“Of course he wants to [go back] to try and show himself at Chelsea.

“It is natural he wants that but what happens in the next three months it is impossible to know that.”
