West Brom VS Chelsea Prediction
The last Monday night effort in season 2014-2015 meets the teams of West Bromwich Albion and the new champions from Chelsea, who will play their 37th EPL challenge without any pressure, since both teams are already waiting for the summer break. That’s the last home game for “The Baggies” and “The Hawthorns” will have the opportunity to close the season with a game against the champions from Chelsea, who will arrive in West Midlands after an 1:1 draw last weekend, when “The Blues” and Liverpool shared one points, so as the hosts did in their previous game – 1:1 vs Newcastle United.
This time Chelsea will look for a first win at “The Hawthorns” since April 2011, when “The Blues” won with 3:1, while Chelsea failed to commit a victory in its last 3 visits here – surprisingly or not WBA won twice and the game last season ended with a draw – 1:1. Now “The Throstles” can only play for their pride, before the last round visit at “Emirates”, so we expect Tony Pulis’s men to do everything to surprise their supporters before the season end, as WBA are without a home win since the mid of March, when Tony Pulis won over his former club Stoke City with the minimum 1:0 win, which was followed by two defeats and a draw – 1:4 vs QPR, 2:3 vs Leicester City and a goalless draw in their last home effort against Liverpool.
Chelsea will lift the Premier League trophy against Sunderland, when in the upcoming Sunday Jose Mourinho’s men will receive their award for the consistency during all the season, which makes their trophy completely deserved. Now it’s time for some rotations and experiments in “The Blues”, as the 19 years old youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek started in the last round, while this time is expected Jose Mourinho to award few more names with a Premier League football – Nathan Ake and Isaiah Brown can recored some minutes with the blue shirt, which will be a great moment in the end of the season for Chelsea’s younsgers, who are waiting for that. Ake already recorded few minutes with Chelsea’s shirt in the 6:0 win over Maribon in the group phase of the Champions League, and in some of the domestic cups, where Chelsea took part, while Izzy Brown is set to make his first appearance for Chelsea, since he arrived exactly from West Bromwich Albion’s academy in 2013.
Final conclusion, betting prediction and possible squads of West Brom and Chelsea – English Premier League 18.05.2015
We know that it’s quite risky to suggest the “over” as a possible bet in a game, where we have both names like Jose Mourinho and Tony Pulis, but in a game where both sides are playing only for the supporters and they don’t chase anything, we find the offered ratio as a very tempting and reasonable bet here – our bet is for “Over 2.5 Goals” between WBA and Chelsea.
