December 1st, 2021 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech ensured the visitors defeated Watford in an immensely eventful and dramatic encounter at Vicarage Road.

Two moments of quality from the league leaders prove to be the difference as they are pushed all the way by Claudio Ranieri’s side.

The match was halted after 13 minutes when a fan suffered a cardiac arrest in the Graham Taylor Stand.

The game was paused for half an hour until the supporter was stabilised and taken to a nearby hospital.

Chelsea opened the scoring on 29 minutes when a delicious ball by Antonio Rudiger found Marcos Alonso down the left flank and the full-back passed to Kai Havertz in the penalty area.

That is where the Germany international switched to Mason Mount to his right and the forward beat Daniel Bachmann with a clinical finish.

But Watford wouldn’t be denied as Moussa Sissoko led the counter-attack and passed to Emmanuel Dennis to his right.

Dennis beat Edouard Mendy with a composed finish and made it 1-1 just two minutes before half-time.

But Chelsea ended up being the winners thanks to a brilliant team goal on 72 minutes when Rudiger crossed from midfield to Alonso down the left flank and the full-back nodded it to Mount on his left.

The England international delivered a wonderful low ball to the penalty area where Hakim Ziyech picked it up and smashed the ball behind Bachmann’s net/
