Chelsea Seeks Trophy Bringing Victory over West BromPublished May 12, 2017 by Florin P
Chelsea is ready to celebrate a new Premier League trophy by defeating West Brom on the road (8:00 p.m UK Time).
Chelsea were the main beneficiaries of the results recorded this weekend, especially the stunning defeat of Tottenham at West Ham. They are now just one step away from claiming the Premier League trophy and they can do it in emphatic fashion. A victory on the road against West Bromwich would be enough to secure the trophy regardless of what happens in the final round. For the visitors, this game is far less important, although a victory over Chelsea is always cherished by the fans.
Stunning Home Record for Both Teams
Chelsea has won 14 games at home, the second best record, as it only trails Tottenham who is yet to lose a match at White Hart Lane. On the road, they are also pretty effective at scoring goals, yet they tend to commit more errors and opponents take advantage. By comparison, West Bromwich has won half of the games played at home and only drew on two occasions.
Since the home side plays with no pressure on its shoulders, it can take more chances upfront and try to achieve something spectacular. Nothing would be better than to defeat the newly crowned champions and this is the outcome they will be chasing on Friday night.
No Injury Concerns for Chelsea
Perhaps the main reason for why the Londoners have won the Premier League this season is that they managed to keep a healthy starting formation. Occasional injuries were not enough to set them back and once again they can field the best 11 players. If Chelsea comes out firing on all cylinders, then there will be very little that West Bromwich can do to stop them in their tracks.
Arguably the best bet for this fixture would be the over 2.5 goals to be scored, since both teams will chase outright victory. bet365 Sports offers odds of 4/5 for this market and the upside is that players are likely to cash in their profits well before the final whistle.
