Chelsea vs West Brom Prediction & Betting tips
Antonio Conte is still the manager of Chelsea and does not intend to leave Stamford Bridge early. Chelsea is in fifth place due to the victory of Tottenham Hotspur at Arsenal and so the formation of Conte has to take three points when West Bromwich Albion comes on Monday night.
Chelsea is the crisis and the Chelsea supporters hope that this will soon change. The Blues were recently eliminated in the League Cup by Arsenal and have been outright bad in the Premier League in recent weeks. The team of Conte is currently in fifth place in the Premier League with fifty points and has played a match less than Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, but at Chelsea they have to play the last twelve matches to get a ticket. get hold of the Champions League. In that Champions League FC Barcelona is next week the opponent and in the current form no one takes into account a stunt of The Blues against the Catalans.
The current form is extremely bad. Chelsea did not manage to win two of the last ten games in regular time and the club from London lost its last two matches. First, AFC Bournemouth on Stamford Bridge was 0-3 too strong for the men of Antonio Conte and last week Monday The Blues went 4-1 to visit Watford. Chelsea had to cash in three goals in the last six minutes and The Blues had to play an hour with ten men by a quick red card for Tiemoué Bakayoko, but for a club such as Chelsea that is of course no excuse to lose 4-1 against Watford.
The criticism of Conte has increased in recent times and that can also be explained. The results are disappointing and then the Chelsea manager is obviously the head of jut. The expectation was that Conte could pack all his stuff this week after the defeat against Watford, but the Italian himself has indicated that he is not going to leave and as we are used to, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has not heard anything yet. With West Bromwich Albion-home and Hull City-home in the FA Cup, there are two home games for Chelsea this week and if Conte does not win two matches, it will be done with the Italian service at Chelsea.
West Bromwich Albion is the runner-up of the Premier League and takes on Monday against the national champion last season. The Baggies went down against Chelsea earlier this season on their own Hawthorns, but the team of Alan Pardew will realize that there is something to be gained this week when West Bromwich Albion visits Chelsea. However, the reality is that West Bromwich Albion is in last place in the Premier League and The Baggies saw the gap with the other relegation candidates rise to four points.
Although WBA was able to win four points from the last four games in the Premier League, the Pardew men lost their last two league matches. The 3-0 defeat of a visit to Manchester City had already been taken into account by everyone who cares about West Bromwich Albion, but last Saturday, The Baggies also faced the relegation candidate Southampton: 2-3. After a marvelous tribute to Cyrille Regis who passed away on 14 January, West Bromwich left the starting blocks against Southampton and Ahmed Hegazi headed WBA ahead, but The Baggies had to hit three hits between the 40th and 55th minute and a 1-3 deficit this West Bromwich no longer to overcome.
Under Alan Pardew and his predecessor Tony Pulis, West Bromwich Albion won only one of the last 24 matches in the Premier League and in that respect it is also not surprising that West Bromwich Albion is one of the relegation candidates. Pardew does not really have a selection to lick your finger at, and The Baggies have to deal with standard situations this season – eight of the 21 goals of West Bromwich this season in the Premier League came from a free kick or corner . This can of course be a weapon for West Bromwich, but for the time being that weapon does not seem to be good enough to avert degradation.
