Chelsea got an opening day 3-1 win against Brighton, but then lost to Liverpool 2-0 at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

The Blues will take a trip to the Hawthorns, as West Brom play host to Chelsea on Saturday evening.

The Baggies have been the whipping boys of the season so far, having conceded eight goals in two games, and BetVictor brand ambassador Michael Owen, has backed Chelsea to beat West Brom 3-0.

Owen wrote: “With heavy defeats against Leicester and Everton in their opening two games, there’s no respite for newly promoted West Brom.

“Chelsea are the visitors to the Hawthorns this weekend and manager Slaven Bilic will be hoping that the signing of ex-Chelsea veteran, Branislav Ivanovic, can help shore up a defence that has already conceded 8 Premier League goals in their first two games.

“Frank Lampard will have been disappointed with his team’s lacklustre display against Liverpool on Sunday when they were well beaten in a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

“It may take some time for him to bed in all his new signings but he will be demanding a much improved performance against the Baggies and I fancy a comfortable 3-0 win for the Blues.”
