West Brom vs Chelsea: Preview
Les Bleus are one of three teams this season with title ambitions. They splurged generously on the transfer window and landed one of the scariest teams in all of Europe.
They were fourth in the standings last season with an inexperienced Frank Lampard leading the way and a transfer ban. As such, one has to see how high they would finish this time.
They take on a few newly promoted Baggies this weekend, and that alone should be reason enough to pick the Blues as the weekend favorites.
Slaven Bilic’s men are not only one of the least experienced teams in the PL today, they could also be the worst of the bunch.
They are already the lowest in the standings with a 100% loss record, and have also conceded the most goals so far in the competition.
And finally, Lampard’s men also have an excellent h2h record against them. Expect Chelsea to win this Saturday.
West Brom vs Chelsea head to head (H2H)
- The Blues are in a four-win series against this opponent.
- They had scored a total of seven goals in the last two meetings alone.
- Eight of the previous eleven victories at this stadium were for the guests.
- The last time these two met on this field, the visitors won 0-4.
West Brom vs Chelsea prediction
Bilic’s men lost 5-2 on the road on the final day of the game against Everton. Meanwhile, Lampard’s men have lost 2-0 at home to Liverpool.
Although the loss hurt the Blues, they were able to take comfort in the fact that it had been against defending champions. Plus, they also face the worst team in the league this weekend, and could make up for it with a big win.
In fact, the Baggies were last in the table and have lost every game so far in the league by a huge margin.
And to rack up even more, they also have a terrible H2H record against the Blues throughout the years. In fact, they are on a four-game losing streak against the 2016-17 PL champions and have conceded three or more goals in the last two H2H games.
For the reasons, expect a dominant Chelsea to win this match week.
