West Brom vs Chelsea: Predictions
West Brom and Chelsea will both have a serious point to prove when they meet at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon.The Baggies finished second to Leeds United in the Championship last season to seal a return to the Premier League but have lost their opening two games since then, leaking a combined eight goals against Leicester City and Everton so far.
A penalty shootout exit to Brentford in the EFL Cup in midweek only compounded the misery for Slaven Bilic.Thinks haven’t exactly gone smoothly for Chelsea so far, though, either.
Frank Lampard has been incredibly busy in the transfer market, bringing in the likes of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva, but had to work hard for a 3-1 opening-day victory over Brighton, well the Blues were incredibly disappointing during their 2-0 loss to Liverpool last time out.
Even before they were reduced to 10 men, Chelsea failed to ask any serious questions of the defending champions, more often shooting themselves in the foot as they tried to play out of the Liverpool press. For both sides, this is a chance to lay down a marker and get things back on the right track while we’re still in the formative stages of the 2020/21 campaign.

West Brom vs Chelsea: Team Stats
A 2-0 home defeat to Liverpool wasn’t the ideal result last time out for Chelsea, even if it was against the defending champions. More concerning, however, was the lethargic performance of Lampard’s side in possession of the ball.
A clash with West Brom, who the Blues have beaten and nilled in each of their last four meetings, could prove to be the perfect tonic. The Baggies have leaked eight goals in their opening two games back in the Premier League and after missing a decent chance against Liverpool, Timo Werner will be eager to pounce and open his account for the Londoners.
As if West Brom’s start to the season hadn’t been bad enough, they face a Chelsea side which they haven’t beaten in six attempts this weekend, while they’ve tasted victory against the Blues just once in their last 11 meetings.
Chelsea have kept a clean sheet in six of those games, so Bilic must be looking at this fixture with some nerves considering his side are yet to get a single Premier League point on the board.
