Chelsea v West Brom

Postby Conner99 » Thu Nov 07, 2013 10:19 pm

Chelsea stayed second in the table despite losing 2-0 at Newcastle , Jose Mourinho was `angry` with his players after the match and seemed to be unable to understand why his team had lost ..he was also worried about their away form having taken just 5 pts on their travels this season , he pointed out that he could have made a mistake with the players he picked for this game .."I made 11 mistakes, I should have picked another 11 and not this one,"



West Brom beat struggling Crystal Palace 2-0 and made sure the defeat by Liverpool last week was forgotten , the Baggies are currently 11th in the table and manager Steve Clarke will be hoping for a good result at Stamford Bridge after having secured a win against Man Utd at Old Trafford and a draw at home to Arsenal .

I'm pretty sure that Mourinho won't be complaining about making 11 mistakes after this
game and lets hope that Edin Hazard knows what time the kick off is after not knowing when training was the other day!

Chelsea 5-0 WBA

It is really hard to make a case for the Baggies, except if you look at the game they took to Old Trafford. If I was Steve Clarke I'd be playing the highlights of that game back to the players before kick off. Unfortunately, Chelsea at home look a far tougher nut to crack than Man United, so I think the Baggies will give their usual entertaining effort but find the Chelsea defence a tad less generous than the Man United one. Chelsea 2 WBA 0

yeah it's hard to see past a comfortable home win really.

West Brom will surely battle hard but without much else so the scoreline will be ultimately dependent on how long it takes Chelsea to break the deadlock. i think 3-0 here.

It looks like Hazard is going to be recalled which is good news for my fantasy football team :D

Did you know that Chelsea have won 12 of their 14 Premier League games with West Brom (W12 L2) including all seven at Stamford Bridge.

Any more comments or predictions?

The Baggies equalise! They deserve to get the goal, Chelsea have tried to sit on the one goal advantage, so no sympathy (like I'm ever going to have sympathy for Chelsea). Half an hour to go, great fun!

Well, the Baggies were robbed by a penalty that wasn't. Nonetheless, a fine point for WBA that nobody would have predicted. Chelsea fans may be wondering if all that adulation for the 'special one' at the start of the season was merited after recent results...

FT

Chelsea 2-2 WBA
1-0 Eto'o 45’
1-1 Long 60’
1-2 Sessegnon 68’
2-2 Hazard 90’ (pen.)

Jose Mourinho's unbeaten home league record almost came to an end but Chelsea were awarded an injury time penalty!

Should it have been a spot kick?

Any comments on todays result?

It really was a terrible dive by Ramires to win that penalty,the worst that that I have seen for a long time and the ref was a joke to give it!

I totally agree Hams , it was unbelievable that the ref gave a penalty to Chelsea ..Reid had his arms up and did nothing other than brush against Ramires , the ref fell for it hook line and stinker . The claim by Mourinho that it was a clear penalty is laughable ...as is the claim by him that Branislav Ivanovic was fouled leading to the West Brom second goal ...he just lost out to a normal challenge for the ball .

West Brom were so unlucky really not to win .

According to reports Jose Mourinho called WBA's Jonas Olson a "Mickey Mouse" player which caused a tunnel bust up between the 2 sides at the end of the game :lol:

Hmmmm, I know its still early but I had a feeling at the beginning of the season that 'The not so special ones' return would end in tears - as I said though it is early days.
