    Watford 1-2 Chelsea: Controversial Diego Costa secures second win

    By Alex Easley
    Diego Costa scored his second late winner for Chelsea in a week.
    Diego Costa controversially scored a late winner for Antonio Conte’s Chelsea as they came from behind to defeat Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

    Having somehow avoided a second booking for simulation during the second half of the game, the Spanish forward took full advantage of referee Jon Moss’ amnesty, following up his winner against West Ham last Monday night with the decisive goal three minutes from full-time.

    Etienne Capoue’s superb volley had given the hosts a much deserved lead on 55 minutes, but Chelsea levelled through summer signing Michy Batshuayi, who scored his first goal in English football with 10 minutes to go.

    The win sees Anstonio Conte claim his second successive win in his first two Premier League games, and also sees his side move level with early frontrunners Manchester United.

    Watford, however, remain with just the single point from Walter Mazzarri’s two opening fixtures.

    The Hornets boss stuck with the same team that earned a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Southampton last weekend.

    Conte chose to replace Willian with Pedro in what was his one and only change from Chelsea’s opening game of the season.

    It was Watford who created the first chance as Miguel Britos’ cutting pass played Jose Holebas through on goal, but Thibaut Courtois saved from the Greece international on seven minutes.

    Both teams enjoyed long spells of possession early on without threatening either goal, until the 24 minute mark that was.

    Nordin Amrabat bundled his way down the right wing, beat Cesar Azpilicueta and drilled a low cross into the area.

    Odion Ighalo was ready to turn the ball home from six-yards, but it was Gary Cahill who came to Chelsea’s rescue as he intervened enough to see the Nigerian’s loop ball over the target.

    Watford continued to have the better of the chances as Adlene Guedioura blazed over the target on 32 minutes, just seconds after John Terry had denied Ighalo was denied heading in with a perfectly-timed clearance.

    Costa threatened in the closing stages of the half, forcing goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes to spill a cross, but the Blues couldn't capitalise as the half ended level.
    Etienne Capoue gave Watford a second half lead with his second in two games.
    Watford resumed strongly and broke the deadlock within 10 minutes as floated ball into the Chelsea area found Capoue at the far post, and the Frenchman controlled on his chest before rifling high past Courtois for his second goal in as many games.

    Costa picked up a booking for gesturing to the match officials in the aftermath of Watford's opener, and Chelsea looked lost for ideas when they tried to get back into the game.

    Chelsea grew frustrated chasing the game, and Costa personified this by throwing himself to ground theatrically on 67 minutes in a bid to win a free-kick and referee Moss decided not to dismiss the Spaniard for a second bookable offence.

    When an unsighted Gomes was unable to gather Eden Hazard's dipping drive, an eager Batshuayi was on hand to convert from close range for his first goal since his big-money summer move from Marseille.

    Seven minutes later Fabregas' inch-perfect through ball released Costa and he slotted the ball home under Gomes to complete the turnaround, which could have been made secure had Batshuayi found the net instead of rattling the underside of the Watford bar in added time.
    Michy Batshuayi scored his first Chelsea goal before Costa sealed the win.
