West Bromwich Albion vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.
The Blues are one of the three teams this season with title ambitions. They have been lavishly splurging money in the transfer window, and have gotten themselves one of the scariest squads in the whole of Europe.
They had finished fourth in the table the last season with an inexperienced Frank Lampard at the helm and a transfer ban. As such, it’s to be seen how high they would finish this time around.
They are pitted against a recently-promoted Baggies this weekend, and this alone should be enough reason to pick the Blues as the favorites for the weekend.
Not only are Slaven Bilic’s men one of the most inexperienced teams in the PL at the moment, but they also could be the absolute worst of the lot.
They are already placed bottom-most in the league table with a 100% losing record, and they have also conceded the most number of goals so far in the competition.
And finally, Lampard’s men have a great h2h record against them as well. By all means, expect a Chelsea win this Saturday.
West Brom vs Chelsea Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Blues are on a four-game winning run against this opponent.
- They had scored a total of seven goals from the past two clashes alone.
- Eight of the former eleven wins at this stadium had gone to the guests.
- The last time these two met at this ground, the visitors had won 0-4.
West Brom vs Chelsea Prediction
Bilic’s men lost 5-2 on the road the last match-day, against Everton. In the meantime, Lampard’s men lost 0-2 at home against Liverpool.
While the loss did hurt the Blues, they could take solace in the fact that it had come against defending champions. Moreover, they are also pitted against the worst team in the league this weekend, and could more than make up for it with a huge win.
In fact, the Baggies have placed themselves dead last in the table, and have lost all of their games so far in the league by a huge margin.
And to further pile on, they also have a terrible h2h record against the Blues over the years. In fact, they are on a four-fixture losing run against the 2016-17 PL champions, and have conceded three or more goals in the past two h2h encounters.
For the reasons, expect a dominating Chelsea win this game week.
