West Brom have finally beaten Chelsea in the top flight having lost all previous 11 encounters but were good value for the three points today.
For the Blues though it goes from bad to worse as they have now only won three of their last twelve league games and whilst Daniel Sturridge had a couple of scoring opportunities overall Chelsea’s defensive frailties continue.
The winner for Roy Hodgson’s side gave then a third consecutive league win and arrived with eight minutes remaining as they pressed for a winner.
