West Bromwich Albion – Chelsea
West Bromwich Albion hosts Chelsea in a game from the 12th round of the English Premier League.
West Bromwich are not performing in the best way possible, having won just twice since the start of the new season. Tony Pulis’ team is without a win in the last five rounds of the league, losing three consecutive times in the last three games. Right now WBA are positioned on just one point above the relegation zone, so they are in a dangerous place right now.
Against them we see Chelsea, who are enjoying a good run of three consecutive wins in the league. Antonio Conte’s team had some difficult times in the league, but now it looks like the champions are once again getting on the right track. In the last round Chelsea won the three points against Manchester United, which was a great result for the Blues. Right now Chelsea are 4th in the league, being on 9 points behind the leader Manchester City.
This is an important game for both teams. West Bromwich are really in a rush to start winning some more points, while Chelsea do not have any room for more mistakes. They already made a lot of them since the start of the new campaign.
West Bromwich can’t use the injured James Morrison and Craig Dawson, who are once again unavaliable for the manager Tony Pulis.
In the same time Chelsea could be without Tiemoue Bakayoko, David Luiz, Gary Cahill and Victor Moses, who all have some injury problems before the game.
Chelsea are the favourites here. How we said, the Blues are enjoying some good run in the league in the last three rounds, being flawless in the last few weeks. In the same time Tony Pulis still can’t find the right way to inspire WBA, which could be a problem for the club.
