Cape Town - Watford midfielder Tom Cleverley says his side have a good chance of surprising Chelsea in Saturday’s Premier League encounter.

The Hornets head to Stamford Bridge following a 2-1 win over Arsenal, while the Blues recently lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace, who were without a goal or a point until that match.

"I really feel we are building something here," Cleverley told the club's official website. "Why not go and beat Chelsea? We go there with confidence.

"With this squad of players and staff, you look forward to going into work on a Monday. It's a really good bunch of lads, so it's a mixture of doing it for them and personally not scoring for a while, a lot of emotion came out in the celebration and it was a really good moment."

Cleverley also gave his take on their new manager, Marco Silva, who currently has them fourth in the Premier League standings, two points above the reigning champions.

"Since he has come in he has tried to change our mentality and not be a club that maybe settles for a draw," he told Talksport.

"The mentality change has been the biggest thing. He's done that quicker than he thought."

Kick off is at 13:30.
