Head-To-Head

West Brom are sitting pretty in mid-table despite a six match winless run (drawn two, lost four) and they can reflect on a decent enough season under Tony Pulis, who will relish the chance to try and spoil the party against Chelsea.

The Baggies won't want the opposition celebrating a title success on their own patch and the hosts have a decent record in this West Brom v Chelsea fixture as they have lost just one of their past five meetings at The Hawthorns (won three, drawn one).

With that in mind, West Brom are 4/5 to cover a +2 goal advantage (Betway) and it is something that they have achieved in their last five at home against Chelsea.

Recent Form

West Brom have actually covered +2 goals in nine of their past ten against Chelsea overall (won three, drawn three, lost four) and they have also covered in five of their eight meetings with top-five opposition this season (drawn two, lost six).

Pulis loves his teams to sit back and stifle the big teams in the top-flight but the lack of goals must be something of a concern for the Baggies manager, who has seen his side go 285 minutes without a goal at The Hawthorns.

West Brom's remit will be to frustrate Chelsea and Diego Costa in particular, with the Spaniard having notched three goals in the last five renewals of this fixture. Costa is 3/1 to be first goalscorer (Sky Bet) but his volatile temper might be tested by what has proven to be a bit of a tempestuous affair in recent years.

The last seven clashes between these sides have witnessed 38 yellow cards and three red cards (5.8 cards per game on average), with Bet 365 going 5/6 about over 3.5 cards in Friday's fixture.
