Chelsea – Blues can consolidate fourth spot?

The Blues (W14 D9 L6) are yet to concede in a Premier League home game since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel as manager, with each of their three league wins at Stamford Bridge under the German accompanied by a clean sheet. This raises the prospect of another Chelsea Win To Nil on Saturday when West Brom, without a goal in their past three top-flight fixtures, pay them a visit in the lunchtime kick-off.

Above all else, the West London side remain undefeated across all fourteen competitive matches since appointing the former PSG boss. His record in the Premier League reads seven wins and three draws, the most recent coming at Elland Road in the form of a goalless draw with Leeds. That their third 0-0 scoreline under Tuchel, one more than Chelsea accrued through their first nineteen league games of 2020-21.

Wednesday’s Champions League encounter with FC Porto is also likely to lead to some personnel changes this weekend, for a fixture Chelsea have dominated down the years (W10 D2 vs West Brom at Stamford Bridge in Premier League). Not that Chelsea, a mere two points clear in that crucial fourth and final Champions League spot, are in any position to be taking a league fixture lightly right now.


Chelsea 3-0 (Correct Score)



West Brom – Baggies approaching last chance saloon?

Sam Allardyce has never suffered relegation from the Premier League during his managerial career, establishing quite the reputation for coming to the rescue of clubs posed with the threat of relegation, but seems destined to sample his first such experience with West Brom (W3 D9 L17). This after the Baggies made it one point in three games with a 1-0 defeat away to Crystal Palace prior to the international hiatus.

That loss at Selhurst Park, their ninth in sixteen top-flight matches under the former Sunderland and West Ham boss, has left the Baggies ten points from safety with 27 points still to play for between now and their final game of the season. Big Sam described the challenge ahead as a ‘massive mountain’, one in which base camp simply has to begin at Stamford Bridge this Saturday.

West Brom are yet to register victory away to Chelsea in the Premier League era, losing ten of twelve visits to West London for this fixture. They will hope the improvements made defensively, having conceded just three goals across their last six league fixtures (W1 D3 L2), can aide them in producing the most unlikely of wins – with the last visiting team to prevail here being runaway leaders Man City on 3 January.

Chelsea Vs West Brom Betting Advice

Thomas Tuchel has had a profound impact on Chelsea since assuming the reins in late January. In the ten Premier League games the German has so far overseen, Chelsea boast seven wins while conceding only twice, one of those an own goal. Perhaps the one remaining criticism has been the lack of end product from their embarrassment of attacking riches, averaging a modest 1.1 goals per game across this timeframe.


Chelsea Vs Bayern Munich – Key Facts:

  • This has been a fixture Chelsea have enjoyed throughout the Premier League era, registering a win in 10 of these sides 12 such meetings (D2) at Stamford Bridge.
  • West Brom surged into a 3-0 half-time lead in the reverse fixture, before Chelsea rallied in the second half with three unanswered goals of their own.
  • Another high-scoring affair appears unlikely, though. Chelsea boast eight clean sheets in ten Premier League games, while West Brom have shipped three goals across their last six in the competition.


It has taken Sam Allardyce much longer to impart his wisdom on this West Brom side, and even now the outlook remains bleak. Three goals conceded in their last three league games suggests progress has been made, however, a tally of two goals scored in this same period hints at a long afternoon ahead at Stamford Bridge – where they’ve failed to score on nine of their twelve previous Premier League visits.
