We expect a 1-0 Chelsea win at 6.5 with bet365
Both teams need the win here for different reasons. Chelsea to keep in touch with leaders Manchester City and the chasing pack at the top of the table, and West Brom to end their 10 match winless streak.
It’s hard to believe that a Tony Pulis team could go through such a barren spell, especially given how well they started the season. However, the Baggies have fallen to 16th in the league and have lost their last three.
Nethertheless, you can expect a hard-working, physical and organised performance from his side, and even with their poor form they will still make it difficult for Chelsea.
The Blues bounced back from a 3-0 Champions League loss to Roma with a crucial 1-0 win over Manchester United before the international break, and have won their last three league matches.
Even when playing poorly, Antonio Conte is always capable of grinding out results and we are predicting that type of result on Saturday, with a 1-0 Chelsea win priced at 6.5 with bet365.
As for first goalscorer, Alvaro Morata has been the man in form both for club and country in recent weeks, but we’re backing compatriot Cesc Fabregas to open the scoring at 11.00 with Unibet.
Perhaps it’s safer to back Morata, but with most of the bookies offering prices of aruond 7.0 on a Fabregas first goal, the 11.00 that Unibet are offering is too good to ignore.
Chelsea face West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon. Antonio Conte’s side have won their last three league matches and will want a win to keep the pressure up at the top of the table. West Brom will also be desperate for the three points given that they haven’t won in their last 10 matches in all competitions.
Chelsea have not been too convincing this season, but the win over Manchester United before the international break will have boosted confidence. They could go up to second with a win.
Chelsea Form: WLWWWD
The Baggies started the season well but have had a bit of a nightmare in the last six weeks or so. Tony Pulis’s men haven’t won in ten matches and are languishing in 16th in the league.
West Brom Form: LLLDDL
Chelsea and West Brom have met 137 times previously, with the Blues having won 60 of their previous meetings including the last one back in May to seal the league title. However, the Baggies have beaten Chelsea 42 times themselves and were 3-0 winners over the Blues in the 2014/15 fixture.
Eden Hazard, Gary Cahill and Tiemoue Bakayoko are all carrying knocks but are expected to return. Michy Batshuayi is out, and Victor Moses is also doubtful. West Brom are likely to be without Craig Dawson and James Morrison due to injury.
