Chelsea started the new season very good, but now is in series of three matches without a victory in the Premier League.
First they lost 2:3 from Manchester United in a controversial match at Stamford Bridge, while after that played two draws with Swansea and Liverpool. West Bromwich Albion on other side have a great season. Even the fans were not expecting their team to be on the fifth position after 11 rounds. The manager Steve Clarke is doing an excellent job.
I expect an efficient match at the Hawthorns. WBA have scored on every of the last seven matches in the Premier League. At the same time, four of the last five matches have finished with Over 2.5 goals.
There is another reason for my pick, connect again with WBA. The regular goalkeeper Ben Foster is sidelined as he recovers from groin operation.
Chelsea is also a team that played efficient matches. The Blues have played Over 2.5 in 9 of the last 11 matches in all competitions. Even more, Chelsea have scored and received at the same time in every of the last 8 games. Last time they kept a clean sheet was against Nordsjaelland on 02.10 in UEFA Champions League. It is also important to be mentioned they will be without the key defender John Terry on this match. He picked up an a knee injury against Liverpool last weekend. This match come too soon for Frank Lampard.
At the end I will mention that six of the last eight mutual games between two teams have ended with Over 2.5 goals.I think this match will also finish with three or more goals.
