Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Chelsea’s campaign hit new lows after a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Watford in the recent league game. Tiemoue Bakayoko capped a horrendous performance with a sending-off in the 30th minute, and Troy Deeney took advantage with a penalty just before half-time. Even though Eden Hazard equalised towards the end of the game, Watford scored three goals in the last six minutes – through Daryl Janmaat, Deulofeu, and Roberto Pereira. West Brom fell to a second consecutive loss after being beaten 3-2 at home by Southampton. Mario Lemina and Jack Stephens cancelled out the early goal from Ahmed Hegazi, while James Ward-Prowse provided a 3-1 lead for West Brom. Salomon Rondon did pull one back for the hosts.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Chelsea prepare for a massive few days by hosting three different teams in three different competitions. Conte’s words prior to this game will give confidence to his players. There will be jitteriness amongst the Chelsea players. Chelsea have been drawing at half-time and winning at full-time in four out of the 13 games. I expect a repeat of the same. Eden Hazard remains the key player at Chelsea by a significant margin. The Belgian international took his league tally to nine goals after the equaliser against Watford. Hazard was able to score a brace in the earlier meeting with West Brom, and I would back the 27-year-old to score anytime.

Draw at half-time and Chelsea win at full-time 

Eden Hazard to score anytime – 21/20

Chelsea Preview

Chelsea are a club in trouble, as several factors have led to the team going from one bad result to the other. The club’s weird transfer activity did not help either, and it appears that Antonio Conte has fallen out with the club. It only seems to be a matter of time before Conte leaves Chelsea, although the Italian has been adamant about honouring his contract. Chelsea have lost three out of the last four games in all competitions. Alvaro Morata remains as the top scorer in the league with 10 goals.

Chelsea Team News

Tiemoue Bakayoko is suspended for the game. Ross Barkley (hamstring), Andreas Christensen (hamstring), Pedro, and Isaiah Brown (cruciate ligament) are the players certainly ruled out, while Marcos Alonso is doubtful due to a muscle injury.

West Bromwich Albion Preview

West Brom showed signs of resurgence under Alan Pardew a few weeks ago, as the team picked up wins over Brighton and Liverpool. However, back-to-back wins has put the club back to square one. The Midlands outfit are still several points away from safety and the confidence of the team slumps with every passing week. Even after 13 matches, West Brom have only picked up one win on the road. Salomon Rondon and Jay Rodriguez are the top scorers at the club with four goals.

West Bromwich Albion Team News

Jonny Evans (back), James Morrison (Achilles tendon), Jake Livermore (hamstring), Nacer Chadli (hip), Jonny Evans (back), Kieran Gibbs (hamstring), Hal Robson-Kanu (hamstring), and Grzegorz Krychowiak (thigh) are the players unavailable for manager Alan Pardew.
