West Bromwich Albion will be hoping to get off the mark when they welcome Chelsea to the Hawthorns in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
Slaven Bilic’s men have been soundly beaten by Leicester City and Everton in their first two matches since promotion and were knocked out of the Carbao Cup by Brentford in midweek.
West Brom vs Chelsea latest odds
Having lost five and won none of their last six matches against this opposition, they are 15/2 (8.50) outsiders with bet365 to raise the spirits with a shock win here.
The Blues bounced back from last weekend’s home defeat against Liverpool with a resounding 6-0 cup win over Barnsley, and are clear 4/11 (1.36) favourites to build on that by coming out on top.
Just three of the last 30 meetings between this pair have resulted in draws but you can get odds of 15/4 (4.75) on this one finishing up all square.
West Brom vs Chelsea team news
Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell could be involved after making their debuts against Barnsley, although Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Ben Gilmour are all injured.
Kieran Gibbs is suspended following last weekend’s red card, while Kenneth Zohore is ruled out through injury and Ahmed Hegazy will face a late fitness test.
West Brom vs Chelsea preview
After an unambitious performance against Liverpool, Frank Lampard will have been delighted to see his side rack up six goals in a match that included a hat-trick for record signing Kai Havertz.
They are sure to start on the front foot once again against the Baggies, who have conceded eight goals in just two league matches so far and let in two against Championship opposition on Tuesday.
West Brom vs Chelsea predictions
Indeed, even money (2.00) seems generous on Chelsea coming out on top and over 2.5 goals being scored for their third match in a row versus West Brom.
