Chelsea vs West Bromwich – Premier League: A dark cloud is approaching Stamford Bridge and Antonio Conte might very well be at the centre of the storm when the dust settles
Near the end of the month, the Blues will have a series of matches that will put them, in a matter of weeks, against Barcelona (twice), as well as against Manchester United and Manchester City away from home.
Between the end of February and the beginning of March, it will be clear which objectives will Chelsea still be able to achieve.
By what the team has been showing over the course of the past couple of weeks, it will be hard to believe we will have a very strong team attacking those objectives. Therefore, Conte’s job seems to be hanging by a thread.
After two heavy losses against Bournemouth and Watford, Chelsea hosts West Bromwich with a lot to prove.
The 7 goals conceded on those 2 matches have caused people to question this team’s defensive organization, although when it comes to the record of goals scored, they are also very poor.
In that scenario, thinking that the Blues will turn things around in the space of 1 week may be too hopeful.
On the other side of the pitch will be a West Bromwich Albion that, after eliminating Liverpool from the FA Cup, in one of their best results of the season, lost against Manchester City and Southampton.
The last place of the Premier League, watching the distance to the safety zone increase, is a bothersome position for this club. Taking advantage of the evils of others, in this case Chelsea’s, might be a way to feint their fate.
Chelsea vs West Bromwich – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With some absences on the roster, Chelsea should go with Olivier Giroud on the starting line-up, hoping that the French will have a positive impact in terms of goals, helping the team, that way, to return to victories.
