After a chastening 2-0 loss away at Newcastle, Jose Mourinho will be keen for his Chelsea side to send out a statement as West Brom visit Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are 7/25 to collect three points, with the Baggies 9/1 to repeat their Old Trafford heroics and the draw priced at 17/4.
The hosts can be expected to maintain their perfect home record in the league, but a better bet is to lump on a goal coming after the 75th minute at 87/100.
In their past eight matches in all competitions, Chelsea have scored eight goals after the 75th minute.
Like the most fashionable of guests the Blues have made a habit of producing late showings in their recent fixtures.
There have been five goals in the closing quarter of an hour in the past four games at Stamford Bridge, with the Blues netting all of them.
Manchester City were the most recent victims, when they looked set to claim a point away at their title rivals only for Joe Hart’s late blunder to allow Fernando Torres to sneak in and claim a winner.
There have been seven goals after the 75th minute in West Brom’s ten league games this campaign.
The Baggies began their season with a 1-0 loss at home to Southampton courtesy of Rickie Lambert’s last-gasp penalty, and that has set a trend for drama in the twilight of their matches hence.
They themselves benefitted from a late goal on their last foray into West London, when Gareth McAuley rescued a point at Fulham in the 90th minute, but Swansea and Liverpool have bagged in tardy fashion against Steve Clarke’s side, a feat Chelsea are a fair bet to replicate.
Chelsea’s bench is packed with attacking talent – the six subs for their game against Schalke scored 87 between them last season.
Part of the reason for Chelsea’s late prolificacy is the surfeit of superb attacking players they have in their squad, as so many are limited to 30 minute cameos from the subs bench in which they are desperate to make their mark.
This weekend a few of the likes of Juan Mata, Demba Ba, Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle and Willian will start the game wrapped up in some kind of absurd duvet coat, and they will need to make their case for a starting spot in the closing minutes if they get a chance at all.
