Frank Lampard became just the second manager in Chelsea’s history to win seven consecutive away fixtures in all competitions after watching his side win 2-1 at Watford on Saturday evening.
Tammy Abraham opened the scoring at Vicarage Road with his ninth Premier League goal of the season, before Christian Pulisic followed on from his hat-trick against Burnley last weekend with another goal to double Chelsea’s advantage.
Gerard Deulofeu pulled one back for winless Watford from the penalty spot, though Chelsea held on to secure a seventh successive away victory which lifts them up to third in the division ahead of Leicester’s trip to Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The win was the latest success in what has proven to be an impressive debut season at the helm for Lampard, who equalled a long-standing club record by becoming just the second manager after Bobby Campbell in 1989 to record seven consecutive away wins.

Chelsea will hope to continue their recent strong form when they host Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday night, with a win likely to almost guarantee their passage into the knockout stages.
