Chelsea – West Brom betting tips for today, February 12, 2018.
Football: England – Premier League
Tip: Home Win
Match Result: 3:0 WON!!!
|A Chelsea side enduring a small crisis welcome rock bottom West Bromwich to Stamford Bridge for some Monday night football.|
|After losing 3-0 away to Bournemouth and 4-1 away to Watford in their last two Premier League matches (PL), and only one win in the last five means that Chelsea’s bid for a top spot behind Manchester City have come under serious doubt. The Blues will see this fixture as a good opportunity to get back on track.|
|West Brom’s away form has been terrible this season, and they’ve recorded just one win in 13 matches so far – scoring just seven goals in the process. Furthermore, their win came in the very first away match of the season, meaning they are now without a win in 12.|
|Antonio Conte recently gave his players some days off to regain some mental focus, stating: “We have to try to stop this bad run… confidence is not high, but we have to trust our work and trust in our football.”|
|Aside from the shock loss to Bournemouth, Chelsea have won all six home games against teams from the bottom half this season.|
|Players to watch: Chelsea’s magical Belgian Eden Hazard has been the sole comfort for the Blues fans lately, and has three goals in his last three PL games.|
|Jay Rodriguez has five goals in his last eight in all competitions for West Brom, can he build on his four PL goals?|
|Stat attack: After Chelsea recorded three 0-0 games in a row in early January, their last five games all ended with over 2.5 goals.|
|West Brom have five defeats and three draws against top six opponents so far this season, but managed impressive draws away to Liverpool and Tottenham.|
|In the last ten head to head matches at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have eight wins and two draws, keeping a clean sheet in seven of ten games.|
