Deeney stepped up and dispatched the penalty with the goalkeeper staying in the middle of the goal.

Thereafter, profligacy rather spared the visitors until Hazard, whipping in a glorious equaliser that dipped under Orestis Karnezis's outstretched left hand, made it level.

Eden Hazard has pulled the rabbit out of the hat with a fantastic long-range curling effort.

Watford's press forced Chelsea's defenders to use Thibaut Courtois as a relief outlet in dangerous situations.

Gracia's men moved six points away from the Premier League's relegation zone as a result of their first win against Chelsea in any competition since September 1999.
