A week after suffering their first defeat for the season against Liverpool, Chelsea will visit the newcomers West Bromwich Albion with just winning in their mind. Let’s preview this game from the third round of the Premier League in our football prediction betting tips today.
Andreas Christensen’s red card didn’t allow Chelsea to take something from the game against Liverpool last weekend. Kepa’s disastrious error for Sadio Mane’s second goal didn’t help as well. But now Chelsea are ready to make another step and forget about what happened against the Reds.
During the week the Blues made a huge statement in the League Cup. Frank Lampard’s team hosted Barnsley and achieved a stunning 6-0 win at the Stamford Bridge. The new signing Kai Havertz scored his first hattrick for the club while Ross Barkley, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud put their names on the scoresheet as well.
The performance against Barnsley is giving Chelsea some hope of another win against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. They need the three points to keep themselves close to the top.
West Bromwich Albion are among the newcomers in the Premier League. They didn’t start the season in the best way possible, though. Slaven Bilic’ team lost both of its first two games for the campaign. Last week W.B.A. paid a visit to Everton and concede five goals for a 2-5 defeat. Diangana and Matheus Pereira scored for the visitors at the Goodison Park.
It seems right now it doesn’t look like West Bromwich will avoid fighting for survival, but it was expected. This club barely has the potential to be among the best in the league.
These are our football prediction betting tips today for the Premier League clash between West Bromwich Albion and Chelsea. The visitors are favourites to take the win here, but W.B.A. are desperate to win first points for the season.
