LONDON -- Three points from Chelsea's 4-2 comeback win versus Watford on Saturday at Stamford Bridge that saw the defending champions avoid three consecutive Premier League defeats.

1. Chelsea remain in the title hunt

Midway through the action-packed second half at Stamford Bridge, it genuinely seemed that Chelsea's title defence was over. With a loss, they would have ended Saturday 12 points behind leaders Manchester City. Instead, a stunning late turnaround means Chelsea are in fourth place and...

A challenger has arisen. Thrust into the limelight, hurled into the fray against the monied elite, they stand defiantly with sword drawn. The odds are against them. The laughter of their enemies echoes in their ears.

But they are Watford. And they are in fourth place. It probably won't last (though we said that about Leicester), but they have done enough already to mock those foolhardy preseason predictions of relegation from idiot outsiders (again, I am so sorry).

Watford's late comeback makes Arsenal pay for missed opportunities

Tom Cleverley's 92nd minute winner gave his Watford side a big 2-1 win over Arsenal, at Vicarage Road.

WATFORD, England -- Three thoughts on Watford's 2-1 win vs. Arsenal in the Premier League.

1. Hosts hit back to stun Gunners

Marco Silva has unquestionably made an impressive start as Watford manager, but ahead of kickoff on Saturday, he still lacked a home victory.

But a little more than 90 minutes later, Vicarage Road was celebrating three points for the first time this season; Tom Cleverley's stoppage-time goal means Silva's men leapfrog Arsenal and move into the top four.

Beware Arsenal, Marco Silva and Richarlison have Watford buzzing

Marco Silva praises Watford for continuing to believe in his philosophy as they look to build on their strong start.

When it comes to reacting to disappointment, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is better than most. Some might suggest that he's had plenty of practice, but we like to rise above that sort of talk here. Wenger is experienced: he doesn't panic and, with the notable exception of last season, he can pull his team out of any nosedive and secure a fourth-place finish.

Since losing 4-0 to Liverpool at Anfield in August, Arsenal have picked up 10 points from 12 and kept four clean sheets in the process. They...

WATFORD, England -- Three thoughts on Manchester City's 6-0 win at Watford in the Premier League.

1. Man City march into top spot

The attacking talent that Pep Guardiola has at his disposal at Manchester City was too much for Watford. With Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva pulling the strings in midfield, Sergio Aguero grabbing a hat trick and Gabriel Jesus also scoring, an awesome six-shooting display of attacking quality fired the Vicarage Road visitors top of the Premier League.

MANCHESTER UNITED: A+

Perfect. An entirely unblemished record. Admittedly, this entirely unblemished record has been secured against some of the weaker teams in the league, but that's hardly their fault. Besides, if we all insist that the beauty of the Premier League is that, "anyone can beat anyone," then...
