Chelsea vs West Brom prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out today?

Chelsea host West Brom on Saturday in a clash of two teams in drastically contrasting form.

The Blues have been unerringly consistent since the appointment of Thomas Tuchel in late January and at present look on course for a top four finish.

West Brom, meanwhile, are cut adrift in the Premier League’s bottom three following a 1-0 defeat against Crystal Palace before the international break.

Chelsea will likely be guarded against complacency, but the expectation will be another three points for Tuchel’s team.
