After the International break Jose Mourhino will be looking for his Chelsea side to settle in and get a home win over a West Brom side who have struggled of late losing two of their last three. Diego Costa and Febaregas are proving to be excellent signings this season for the Blues and the Stamford Bridge fans are delighted with the pair to go alongside a terrific Eden Hazard. Oscar and Willian are also proving to be excellant signings and overall Chelsea look to be the team to stop in terms of the league title. In fact they look so good that Irish Bookmaker Paddy Power has already paid out on Chelsea winning the league title!
Coming into the lions den, West Brom will look for a better performance than their last effort against Newcastle which was flat from the start and just never got going. England stiker Berahino will be the key threat for the Baggies, the youngster's incredible pace and finishing has him on seven goals from eleven starts this term and he was an unused sub in both of England's friendlies this international break which means he will be fresh and raring to go on Saturday. Andy Irvine has a hard working side here and they will give their all in Stamford Bridge, it may not be enough to get anything from the game but I believe they can get on the scoresheet with Chelsea conceding in each of their last five games.
I'm taking the overs here. I fancy Chelsea to get the win but think it will be 2-1 or 3-1. Normally at home in Stamford Bridge Chelsea try to go out and put it away early, they will have to contend with West Brom's counter attackign ability with Sessegnon and Berahino in particular very dangerous on the counter. Take the overs.
