West Bromwich Albion vs Chelsea predictions for their Premier League match at The Hawthorns on Saturday. West Brom have not won any of their last 10 games. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.


Chelsea secured the Premier League title at The Hawthorns last season and should be celebrating again after this match, albeit in rather more low-key style.

Michy Batshuayi broke the deadlock eight minutes from the end on that Friday night in May to spark scenes of delirium among the Chelsea fans, players and staff as victory brought the Blues their second English crown within three years.

They will struggle to retain it, given the blistering pace Manchester City are setting at the top of the table, but a 1-0 win last time out at home to the leaders’ neighbours United has put Chelsea in a position to launch a challenge and will have boosted confidence within the squad.

That victory was achieved without the dropped David Luiz, of course, and it will be interesting to see if and when he is restored to the team by manager Antonio Conte.

On recent form there should not be much for Chelsea to fear from West Brom, who are enduring a dreadful run and they have not won in any competition since beating Accrington Stanley in the Carabao Cup on August 22.

The pressure is mounting on Baggies manager Tony Pulis, for whom the current malaise is uncharacteristic and he needs to dig a big result out of somewhere very soon or the club’s Chinese owners will join the fans in deciding it is time for him to go.

This is just the sort of test Pulis relishes for he enjoys being the underdog and if he can get the Albion up for it, they may just cause a few problems for the champions.

But it requires a leap of faith to side with West Brom considering how little they have achieved in the last couple of months and after beating Bournemouth and Manchester United, we will count on Chelsea to complete a hat-trick of victories with clean sheets.
