Chelsea Vs West Brom might look like another game on paper that the home team will just cruise away with all three points, but it doesn’t look so with their last encounter ending in a draw.
Both teams played out a 3-3 draw last time out which was during Frank Lampard era and it wasn’t an easy task for them, but with Thomas Tuchel things might be easy or worst today.
Their last five meetings in the English Premier League have ended with the Blues winning four and draw one which was their last meeting that ended with a 3-3 draw away from home.
Chelsea Vs West Brom Injuries Update
As the game between Chelsea Vs West Brom will be going down, we have some injuries update from the camp of the Blues which involves some key players after coming back from the International break.
First on the list is NGolo Kante who is totally out of the game after picking up an injury during France first game in their World Cup qualifiers and he might not be back before Wednesday Champions League game.
Here Is What Tuchel Said About NGolo Kante Absent
‘With N’Golo, we will have to be patient. Will he miss the Porto game? Yes, probably. He is doing individual training and tomorrow’s game comes too soon for him and so he can’t be with the squad.
‘After tomorrow’s game, we have just three days to prepare [for Porto]. He has a muscle injury, as we communicated with the national team.
So my realistic approach is to think further ahead about Porto, maybe the second game against Porto he could be available for.’
