Monday’s Premier League evening clash sees bottom club West Brom travel down to London to face defending champions Chelsea.
Both sides are desperately in need of a win. The Baggies are five points adrift at the bottom of the table and have won just one game from their last 24 league games. Chelsea lie in fifth position, but they are two points off fourth place and the crucial Champions League qualifying position.
The respective positions in the league should suggest a home win, but Chelsea have lost their last two games–to Bournemouth and Watford–and manager Antonio Conte’s position is reputedly under threat.
Can Conte inspire Chelsea out of their slump or will West Brom’s desperation drive them to three points?
We will side with the defending champions, and trust that Chelsea’s talisman comes to the fore. Betfair quotes fixed odds of 7/1 that Belgian ace Eden Hazard scores a brace tonight, and we’ll have some of that.
Recommendation: Hazard to score a brace, 1 pt, at 7/1, Betfair
