The decision by new Watford coach Javi Gracia to advance his lines created enormous problems for Chelsea here on Monday evening, reports Efe news agency. I was playing in Barcelona, I played a lot of games.
With his side down to 10 men, Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois came out against an onrushing Deulofeu and drew a foul.
But after agreeing a loan move to Vicarage Road in the closing days of the transfer window, Deulofeu will spend the next passage of his career linking up with Troy Deeney and Etienne Capoue.
Though Chelsea made adjustments, it took them until the 82nd to pull level, thanks to an outstanding individual effort by Eden Hazard. Watford climb to 30 points and sit 11th on the EPL table. "I am very proud of my players and very happy for our fans".
That being said, the experienced England worldwide called for unity in the face of the current adversity his teammates find themselves in, stating: "I've been here before at this club and we need to keep strong".
"We have to win, we play at home and we have to fight because Chelsea is a top team in Europe", Deulofeu said.
He said: "I know I can score goals, I did it in the past previous year against Chelsea as well".
And television cameras focused on a tearful Richarlison sitting on the home bench after he was replaced by Roberto Pereyra in the second half of the game.
"Last week in Stoke we had a good result, a point there, and three points today".
"We have to play more compact against Chelsea, they are a good team and they play well".
"We have a tough month coming up and we need to pick up points, the Champions League [last-16 tie with Barcelona] is coming soon and we have to continue to work". It is the same. Performance-wise, I didn't recognise us or myself. "I work every day and I give 120 percent, if this is enough, okay, otherwise the club can take a decision, but I'm not anxious", said Conte.
