West Bromwich Albion Vs Chelsea Preview, Predicted Lineups, Key Men And Likely Outcome

Current Premier League leaders Chelsea will look to secure their ownership of the coveted trophy for this season when they travel to The Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion. The Blues require only one win in the rest of their matches this season to win this year’s Premier League title and they will like to do that against The Baggies.

West Brom, however, has been a very resilient side, to say the least at home, and are looking to continue their good run at The Hawthorns as it has been throughout the season so far. Tony Pulis’ boys will look to deprive a gallant Chelsea side of a win and make them wait for some more time to bag the Premier League title for the present season.

Team News-

West Bromwich Albion-

West Bromwich Albion will be without Matt Philips and Hal-Robson Kanu due to hamstring injuries. Jonny Evans is reportedly fit for the game, boosting the defensive side for The Baggies. The ex-Manchester United defender was sidelined with an ankle injury in their last encounter against Burnley that ended in a 2-2 draw.

Chelsea-

Chelsea v Hull City - Premier League

Chelsea will be welcoming back their key midfielder N’Golo Kante, who was kept out of the playing eleven in their last match against Middlesbrough due to a thigh injury. Diego Costa is in good form and will look to win it for The Blues in their forthcoming match.

Key Players-

West Bromwich Albion-

West Bromwich Albion coach Tony Pulis will be more than happy with the fact that the injury sustained by his mainstay in defence Jonny Evans is not very serious and he will be playing in the match against Chelsea. He will have to play a very crucial part in this game if The Baggies are to keep The Blues at bay.

Chelsea-

Chelsea has a number of match-winners in their squad who can turn the tide in their favour at any time. Spanish striker Diego Costa is in fine form and can spell trouble for The Baggies today.

Line-up-

West Bromwich Albion-

Foster, Dawson, McAuley, Evans, Wilson, Fletcher, Brunt, Livermore, Morrison, McClean, Rondon

Chelsea-

Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Luiz, Kante, Hazard, Pedro, Matic, Willian, Alonso, Costa

Likely Outcome-

Chelsea need only three points from their next three matches to win the Premier League and will look to do it in this match. However, given the well-known resilience of The Baggies, it is going to be tough for the current league leaders to make it a favourable result.

Prediction- 2-0 (Chelsea)
