Here’s a prediction for the Premier League match, in which West Brom will host Chelsea on 26 September. Will the owners be able to resist? – the answer is in our material.
” West Brom ” has returned to the Premier League with a second place in the Championship, where for 46 rounds was able to get 22 wins and 17 times tied. The failure at the finish of the season is due to the accumulated fatigue, which struck the team in the last four rounds, when the ” bags ” have never won.
It is impossible not to note the line of attack of the ” thrush “, which hit the gates of the opponents 77 times.
The start in the Premier League for West Brom was unsuccessful – two fiascoes in a row from Leicester (0: 3) and Everton (2: 5). In the League Cup, Slaven Bilic’s wards faced another setback – a defeat to the modest Brentford (2: 3 pins) in the 1/16 finals.
Gibbs , Zohore , Ivanovic and Hegazi will not be able to enter the field today .
Chelsea moved up to fourth place last season . For 38 rounds, the ” pensioners ” won 20 victories and finished six fights in peace. The weakest link was the defensive line, which conceded 54 goals, which is the worst indicator of the top ten in the league.
In the first match of the new championship, the Blues beat Brighton (3: 1), but in the next match at home they lost to Liverpool (0: 2). In the English League Cup, the capitals left no chances at home for Barnsley (6: 0), for which we made a forecast .
Among the newcomers to the team, one cannot fail to note the transfer of such stars to Frank Lampard’s wards – Kai Havertz for 80 million from Bayer, Timo Werner from RB Leipzig (53 million) and Ben Chilwell from Leicester (50 million).
In the infirmary, guests are Van Ginkel, Gilmour , Ziyech , Christensen and Pulisic .

” West Brom ” until it fits in new to the tournament, but the team has potential. ” Chelsea ” after such investment is required to win the Premier League, but a misfire in the last game showed that the optimum shape to the capital club is still far.
In our opinion, today the maximum tension awaits us at the gate of the owners, who are unlikely to be able to resist such a powerful opponent. We do not see any other outcome, except for the confident victory of the guests, on which we propose to play the bet.
Our prediction is that Chelsea will win with a handicap (-1), and we bet on it using the Winline betting line with odds of 1.67
