Watford vs Chelsea: Conte wary of Ighalo

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has warned of the threat posed by Watford strikers Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo ahead of the two sides’ Premier League clash today.


The Blues travel to Vicarage Road off the back of a 2-1 win over West Ham in Conte’s first competitive game in charge.

But the Italian believes Watford – now managed by his old rival Walter Mazzari – will be “dangerous” opponents.

He said: “We know that it  is not an easy game, because Watford are a solid team, with good players.

“The two strikers are very strong, they play together very well.  We must pay a lot of attention, because it is a dangerous game for us.

“At this moment, we have to send the right message. For this reason, it’s important to face this game with the right intensity, with the right concentration, [and stay] very focused.”
