English Premier League Report; Chelsea v West Bromwich Albion 12 February 2018”

West Brom are still without a win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge since November 1983 and with only 20 points they are starting to lose hope to extend their Premier League journey for another season.

You'd struggle to think of a player so talented whose career has been so plagued by injury.


After Hazard collected Cesc Fabregas' pass on the edge of the penalty area and resisted pressure he found Giroud, who laid the ball off to him in front of goal, from where the Belgian powerfully finished into the bottom left corner.

The victory against West Brom - who Chelsea defeated last season to secure the Premier League title - marked the return of Alvaro Morata from a back injury and the first start by Olivier Giroud, who moved from Arsenal at the transfer deadline.

Historically, it puts him in the company of legends, with just two Chelsea players being involved in more goals than him since the league's inception in 1992.

Conte had previously suggested that Morata would sit out the visit of West Brom, but the Spaniard was introduced in the second-half and played a part in Eden Hazard's second goal.

Lining out for West Brom, where is now on loan, against Chelsea on Monday Night Football, there were only three minutes gone when the Liverpool-owned man had to leave proceedings. The only people who are going to believe we can (survive) is ourselves. But I think after the break we didn't need to speak about that game.

Should, as fully expected, Hull be brushed aside on Friday night; then Chelsea will walk into a month that will define their season, and dictate how many of those success measures are ticked-off.

"We've worked a lot in training and I feel ready".

"I don't know. Usually in my experience, I reached the best results possible with the players I have to work with". Six of Chelsea's last 10 league goals have been provided by Hazard.

Though hardly a vintage performance from the Blues, it should restore some confidence after back-to-back defeats against Bournemouth and Watford in their previous two outings. "[Against West Brom], we showed great character defensively and offensively which was good".
