Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from the 5-2 defeat to West Brom last weekend, which saw the Blues drop points in the race for a top four finish.

Chelsea are yet to get a win in their last two league games, after a goalless draw against Leeds United and a 5-2 defeat to West Brom.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are a point behind West Ham in 4th, and nothing less than a victory would be good for the Blues this weekend.

Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to get a win in Saturday’s clash and believes that the team will bounce back from the West Brom loss last weekend.

Owen told BetVictor: “Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will be hoping last weekend’s 5-2 defeat at home to West Brom was just a blip.

“The red card turned the game upside down, and after watching them again midweek in Europe, I do believe that may just have been a freak result.

“If Chelsea remain as disciplined as they have been overall under Tuchel, I think they’ll win this by a couple of goals.”

Owen predicted a 2-0 victory for Chelsea.
