Blues face tough test against in form Baggies

Chelsea face a potentially tough trip to The Hawthorns to take on West Brom, and are a standout even money (2) with bet365 to come away with all three points.
That looks a big price for a side who prior to losing 1-0 back in March had beaten the Baggies in 13 consecutive games – 11 of those coming in the league.
The home side have also only netted five goals against the Blues in 12 Premiership games, but they do come into the game in the form of their life.
Steve Clarkes men have taken 15 points from a possible 18 at home, while last week they picked up their first away win at Wigan to move up to fifth in the table.
However Chelsea are a totally different outfit to the Latics and if they play to their best then they should be able to come out on top.
Frank Lampard has scored six goals in his last nine league games against West Brom and that make him the obvious starting point in the goalscorer markets.
He is priced up at 9 with Boylesports and Betfred to score first, and looks a very tasty price at 3.5 with Boylesports to score anytime.
Seven of Chelsea’s goals this season have come from defenders – a league-high tally – so Gary Cahill who has 13 to his name since August 2009 could be worth a small saver at 21 with bet365 to score first.
In what is likely to be a tough and hard fought game am I am going to take Chelsea to edge it 2-1, and that outcome is a 8.5 chance with bet365.
