Before the break, Chelsea took a very important victory against Liverpool. At "Anfield", they won with 2:1 after losing the lead. Hits from Gary Cahill and Diego Costa brought the important three points for Chelsea. Jose Mourinho`s boys are still unbeaten this season and still are on the top of the standings with 4 points lead over Southampton. Chelsea goes confidently in the title race and shows the best football in England in this campaign. Experienced Jose Mourinho will try to gain a good lead in the standings before the busy Christmas and New Years program in the Premier League. Before that match, "The special one" hasn`t had any serious problems with the team. Cesc Fabregas has come home with an injury from the Spanish national team, but it seems that it would be on line for the match at the Bridge. Andre Shurle had cold for which he missed training 2-3 days. With injury is Luik Remy and he will miss this match.
West Bromwich lost from Newcastle in the last round of the competition. The team is 13th in the standings and now have two tough matches - against Chelsea and Arsenal. If they lose them, may be will go dangerously close to the relegation zone. Alan Irvine is doing well this season and "thrushes" recorded some good results - victory over Tottenham (1:0) and draw with Manchester United (2:2). Now before their visit to "Stamford Bridge", the main problem for West Bromwich is the injury of Sebastien Pocognoli. Central defender left forced in the match against Newcastle and now will be questionable for this game.
Jose Mourinho can`t underestimate this match. We believe that Chelsea will seek the three points and will achieve them. The odd of their winning is quite low and the difference in class too, so we suggest you look for a more effective fight. Rate over 2.5 goals at "Stamford Bridge" is attractive - 1.57 at bet365 and we believe it is a better choice for lovers of bets.
Soccer prediction mentioned by nba predictions for Chelsea - West Bromwich: the total number of goals scored will be bigger than 2.5.
