Tempting odds for Baggies to see off Benitez in Chelsea v West Brom clash

West Bromwich Albion could claim yet another Chelsea's manager's scalp when they travel to Stamford Bridge for their Premier League clash with the Blues on Saturday afternoon. Chelsea have lost their last two managers following a defeat to the Baggies and Rafa Benitez is under huge pressure as West Brom bid to cause an upset at the Bridge.

Benitez was never a popular choice as Chelsea manager and the fans have voiced their discontent for much of his reign. Benitez finally voiced his frustration with them and his own club's board on Wednesday night as he used his post-match press conference, following the 2-0 FA Cup win over Middlesbrough, to criticise all and sundry at the club.

His so-called 'rant' has led to huge interest in the next Chelsea manager betting and Jose Mourinho is 8/11 odds on favourite with Bet Victor. Mourinho is likely to leave Real Madrid in the summer and it will be interesting to see how things play out at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea take on a rejuvenated West Brom.

The Baggies are 13/2 to cause an upset by winning on Saturday and they are 4/1 to draw, although it is Chelsea who are 4/9 odds on favourites with BetVictor. It will be a worry for the Blues that they have lost their last two matches against West Brom, with those two defeats then leading to the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas and Roberto Di Matteo respectively.

Benitez could go the same way as his side have won just four of their last 10 matches and they now find themselves in fourth place in the Premier League - two points above Arsenal in fifth and two points behind Tottenham in third. Things are really hotting up in the race for a top-four finish and Chelsea's hopes have faltered as their strikers continue to struggle for goals.

Fernando Torres's woes are well documented and he is 9/2 to score first with Victor Chandler, while Demba Ba has scored just three in 11 and he is 4/1 favourite to notch the first goal. Chelsea's striker's struggles have been mirrored at the back as they have failed to keep a clean sheet in six and both teams to score could be worth a punt at 31/40 this weekend.

West Brom, who are seventh and challenging for a Europa League spot this term, have been relying on Romelu Lukaku for goals. Lukaku has scored 12 goals this season but the Chelsea loanee is ineligible to play against his parent club. It means Peter Odemwingie could be given a chance to impress for the first time since he tried to manoeuvre a move to QPR in January.

Shane Long is likely to keep his place after scoring two in the last three Chelsea v West Brom fixtures and he is 12/1 to score first or 10/3 to score anytime. The Baggies have been rejuvenated of late as an eight-match winless run was followed by successive wins over Liverpool and Sunderland.

Steve Clarke's side have a poor away record though as they have won just two of their last eight on their travels and they have kept just one clean sheet away from home all season. They might look to frustrate an under pressure and misfiring Chelsea outfit and under 2.5 goals can be backed at 6/4, while the match to finish in a West Brom win or draw can be backed at 15/8 in the 'double chance' market.
