What Trueform says for West Brom vs Chelsea

Chelsea recovered well from back-to-back losses either side of the last international break to record three good Premier League wins and now look a cut above West Brom on our Trueform ratings.

Albion haven’t had the easiest of schedules of late but this is another tough test and our chart suggests a fourth straight defeat is on the cards.

The Blues have won by a one-goal margin on their last two trips to The Hawthorns, wrapping up the title here in May, and 23/10 for that to happen again is the first of our West Brom vs Chelsea betting predictions.

A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds

West Brom are without a win in nine top-flight fixtures and a 1-0 loss at Huddersfield saw them slip to 16th in the table, just a point above the relegation zone.

The Baggies went behind to a wonder goal at John Smith’s Stadium but will be concerned by their failure to fight back against a team reduced to 10 men before the hour mark.

Tony Pulis admitted the current poor run is “one of the worst I’ve been on as a manager” and confessed: “We are in the results business and these results mean there’s some pressure on me.”

Albion have only drawn a blank in front of goal once in six home games this term, though, so 11/10 for both teams to score appeals from the West Brom vs Chelsea odds.

A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds

Chelsea weren’t overly-convincing when getting the better of Watford and Bournemouth, before suffering a 3-0 Champions League loss at Roma.

However, the return from injury of N’Golo Kante had an immediate impact as they edged out Manchester United 1-0 in an absorbing Stamford Bridge clash.

“This type of win is important for our confidence,” declared Antonio Conte. “We showed great desire and passion. We can win or lose, but our spirit must be this.”

Everything is still far from rosy in the Chelsea garden, with David Luiz dropped from the squad for that game and technical director Michael Emenalo leaving his post after 10 years with the club.

However, the spine of the side is still strong with Kante back and we’re completing our West Brom vs Chelsea betting tips by taking 29/4 for a 2-1 away win.
