- Match Analysis
Chelsea have suffered yet another embarrassing defeat in less than a week after being thumped by Watford 4-1 which has led to more speculation over Antonio Conte’s future.
Tiemoue Bakayoko had possibly his worst game in a Chelsea shirt before gaining a second yellow card and being sent off on the 30 minute mark.
Bakayoko gave the ball away four times in Chelsea’s own half which led to direct goal chances for Watford. Luckily for Bakayoko he was bailed out by his other defenders and goalkeeper.
And after giving the ball away for the fourth time he clumsily went in for a challenge and was given his marching orders by the ref.
The French midfielder has been under-fire this season after his £40m move from Monaco and turning out less-than-average performances.
And fans have noticed…
I’m hearing #cfc are looking to appeal Bakayoko’s suspension…they want it to be a three game ban rather than just the one

Real disappointment Bakayoko got sent off after two yellows. If it had been a straight red he’d have been out for three games instead.

On the bright side, Bakayoko misses the game against West Brom.

And perhaps the most savage from the night and WARNING this tweet contains explicit language…
Chelsea fans singing “You’re fucking shit” to Bakayoko when he was sent off.

🔵 Chelsea fans to Tiemoue Bakayoko getting sent off vs Watford:
🗣 “You’re f**king s**t!” 😳🔥

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is now under severe pressure with betting agencies already suspending odds on the Italian getting sacked after their horrid display against Watford. And to be fair to Bakayoko, the whole team performed horribly in what could be seen as one of the worst Chelsea performances in a decade.
Bakayoko is under contract until 2022.
