Kick Off: 12:00 GMT. Sunday, December 11, 2016.
Venue: Stamford Bridge
Chelsea continue their surge for the title, and will need to win West Brom to secure their lead at the top of the table.
Chelsea are currently the league’s in-form team, and are on a 8-game winning streak. Tony Pulis’ men are also in good form; they haven’t lost a single game since November. Since a 4-0 home defeat against Manchester City in October, West Brom have turned up a gear with 3 wins and just 1 draw ever since.
West Brom could only take a point off Chelsea last season, as the Blues won at home and drew 2-2 away from home in this fixture last season.
However, Chelsea fans haven’t still forgotten the 3-0 loss to West Brom in our title-winning campaign, two seasons ago.
Playing West Brom have been quite a difficult fixture for Chelsea in recent times. In the last 6 league games between the two sides, Chelsea have won twice, West Brom once, and the remaining ended in draws. In fact, the Blues have won just three of the last nine league meetings home and away (D3, L3).
However, Chelsea are usually dominant against West Brom at home. The Blues are unbeaten in 12 top-flight home matches against West Brom since a 3-1 defeat in September 1978 (W10, D2).
My prediction: I expect Chelsea to take all 3 points against West Brom, as well as keep a clean sheet. Chelsea 2 v 0 West Brom
