West Bromwich – Chelsea (Premier League)

Three points here will be enough to secure Chelsea’s second Premier League title in three years on Friday, with the Blues arriving at the Hawthorns in order to face West Bromwich for the 37th round of the Premier League. The four consecutive defeats of home team ended in the last round with a 2-2 draw at Burnley’s ground, but now they have to face a strong side that aims to be crowned champions here. With the victory over Middlesbrough in the Premier League last round, and with Tottenham being defeated against West Ham, Chelsea got even more isolated at the top of the league table.

West Bromwich are 8th placed in the Premier League table with 45 points, result of 12 victories, 9 draws and 14 defeats, with 41 goals scored and 42 conceded. This has been a season with many ups and downs for West Bromwich, who seems to have hit their worst moment of the season, without winning any of their last 6 Premier League consecutive games, but at least they put an end to a run of five games without a goal when they drew 2-2 at Burnley last time out. This is their last home game of the season and the Baggies would love to delay Chelsea’s title party, giving one last joy to their fans. Recently, Tony Pulis men are far from being a strong side at home, having won only 1 of their last 5 matches at the Hawthorns, losing the other 4, with only 3 goals scored and 6 conceded. The Baggies are showing difficulty in keeping possession of the ball, in defending against long shots and against through ball attacks.

In their last 5 official games, West Bromwich has 1 draw and 4 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 2-0 defeat at Watford’s ground. This result was followed by a 0-1 home defeat against Southampton, a 0-1 home defeat against Liverpool, a 0-1 home defeat against Leicester City, and in their last clash, a 2-2 draw at Burnley’s home. Matt Phillips and Robson-Kanu are out, both due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Foster – Dawson, McAuley, Evans and Nyom – Yacob – Brunt, Livermore, Fletcher and McClean – Rondón.

premier-leagueChelsea, on their turn, are 1st placed in the Premier League table with 84 points, result of 27 victories, 3 draws and 5 defeats, with 75 goals scored and 29 goals conceded. Chelsea has been in a sensacional form this season and after beating Middlesbrough in the last round, with Tottenham’s defeat against West Ham providing even more space between 1st and 2nd place, they are only one step away from being crowned champions for the second time in the last three years. Actually, the champion title isn’t the only title at their reach, since they are also in the FA Cup final where they will face Arsenal. Antonio Conte has done wonders to this team and has put them playing a captivating football, having a fantastic organization at the defense, and are absolutely lethal in attack, being the most goalscoring team of the Premier League.

A victory here would make the Blues the new Premier League reigning champions, and winning away from home hasn’t been a problem for them lately, losing only 1 of their last 5 away matches, winning the other 4, and scored 10 goals, conceding 5 in the process. Offensively, Antonio Conte’s men present a good conversion rate in shooting from direct free kicks, are lethal in counterattacks and in creating chances through individual skill, with very talented players like Willian and Hazard, capable of making the difference at any moment. Diego Costa is the main offensive reference of the team, the 3rd Premier League top goalscorer with 20 goals scored.

In their last 5 official games, Chelsea has won 4 and lost 1. This sequence of results started with a 2-0 defeat at Manchester United’s home. This result was followed by a 4-2 win against Tottenham, for the FA Cup, a 4-2 home win over Southampton, a 0-3 victory at Everton’s ground, and in their last clash, a 3-0 home win against Middlesbrough. N’Golo Kanté failed to recover from a minor injury to feature in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Middlesbrough on Monday but should feature in Friday’s trip to West Brom. He could replace Cesc Fabregas, despite his man of the match performance against Boro.

Probable Lineup: Courtois – Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Cahill – Moses, Matic, Kanté and Alonso – Willian, Costa and Hazard.

West Bromwich has won only 1 of their last 8 direct confronts, drawing 3 and losing the remaining 4.

Chelsea have been amazing lately and are motivated to be crowned champions here, having more than enough  to win this clash, although this should be a game with just a few goals, with West Bromwich showing a poor offensive form lately.
