Everyone missed the strange thing Richarlison did when Watford went 2-1 up against Chelsea

After 60 minutes of Chelsea's game against Watford yesterday, it looked as if the away side would be cruising to a remarkable victory.

Despite Pedro putting the home side ahead at Stamford Bridge, Watford fought back brilliantly with goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Roberto Pereyra putting them on the brink of an unlikely triumph.

It could have been even better for the Hornets, who could have put the game beyond all doubt had Richarlison converted either of the two glorious chances he was presented with.

However, he failed to score, and Chelsea made his misses pay after scoring three goals in the final 20 minutes, two from Michy Batshuayi and one from Cesar Azpilicueta, to salvage the three points.

Nevertheless, Watford still put in a brilliant performance, showing the sensational progress they have made since Marco Silva was appointed earlier this summer.

Richarlison hit the headlines for the wrong reasons, but one eagle-eyed-fan has noticed that the Brazilian did something rather peculiar before his side's second goal.

After laying the ball off to Pereyra to score, the Brazilian attempted to kick an imaginary ball; almost as if he was in Pereyra's position.

Fair play to @JoeWilliams_07, that is a great spot.

Despite a pair of horrendous misses yesterday afternoon, Richarlison is still an early contender for signing of the season.

The 20-year-old signed for Watford from Fluminense for £13 million in the summer, and he has already contributed 3 goals and four assists in his opening nine Premier League games.

The Hertfordshire club looked to have pulled off a coup after securing his signature, and he has been a major reason why his side have started off the season superbly.
