Chelsea can finally secure another Premier League title on Friday night with a win over West Brom. While the trip to West Brom will prove to be a tricky one, I am backing them to win and with that secure the league title.
Chelsea have led the Premier League for the majority of the season and even if they fail to win on Friday, it will take a miraculous turnaround for them to not win the title. They head into this weekend’s games with a seven point advantage over second place Tottenham, with three games to play.
Should Chelsea win on Friday then they will lift the title, regardless of how Tottenham perform in their game on Sunday.
The league leaders probably come to West Brom at exactly the right time, with the home side losing their last three home games. Those losses have all been 1-0 losses, to Leicester, Liverpool and Southampton. Overall West Brom have not won in their last six, losing four and drawing two in what has been a poor run of form.
Chelsea arrive in good form, they have won six of their last eight and three out of their last four away from home. Only an away loss to Manchester United has spoilt their recent away form. Although the pressure will be on them, Chelsea have enough in the form book to beat West Brom, even more so when you consider the home side’s recent poor run.
All Premier League eyes will be on this one on Friday night with the Premier League title up for grabs. Chelsea have the pressure on them of being able to win the title, but they know they have three games to win it so it’s not quite all or nothing just yet. They arrive here at the right time and I think they will be too strong for West Brom, giving them the league title.
