The Stamford Bridge outfit were drawing 0-0 with the Championship side at half time. During the break manager Jose Mourinho took off the ineffective Andre Schurrle and Oscar. In their place came Diego Costa and Willian, and the pair made a big difference to the match. By the end of the second period it was 3-0 to the Blues thanks to goals from Willian, Loic Remy, and Zouma.

“The first half was not good because we played a little bit slow,” the youngster said.

“We began the game with not what we want, but the second half was really good.

“We played really well and we scored three goals so we have to continue and keep working.

“The second half was very much better. Watford played with five defenders so tactically for us it was a little bit difficult.

“They had good players and played well, while we had difficulties in some situations. But we won 3-0 so the result is very good.”

The headed goal from the centre-back was his second of the season following one in the Capital One Cup against Bolton Wanderers earlier in the campaign. The 20-year-old has been limited to the cup competitions for his starts so far this season, but he is happy to wait for his chance. He is currently behind Gary Cahill and John Terry in the pecking order.

“I feel very well because Terry and Cahill are very strong and powerful and in condition to play every game, so I have to wait and wait with pleasure because they are really good defenders,” he revealed.
