Premier League Scores: Result and Highlights from the EPL Fixture between West Bromwich Albion v Chelsea on Saturday, November 17, 2012.
Result: West Brom 2 – 1 Chelsea
Location: The Hawthorns – West Bromwich Albion
|West Brom – 2||Chelsea – 1|
|Shane Long (10’)||Eden Hazard (39’)|
|Peter Odemwingie (50’)|
A draw between these two was what I predicted. While there may not have been a draw, a Chelsea win was something that just was not going to happen in this game. Roberto di Matteo may start getting a bit nervous if he is not able to turn things around. Boaz Myhill put on a man of the match performance in the West Brom goal denying Chelsea time and time again.
Once again it was Chelsea’s defense that really let them down. Two headers, one from Shane Long in the 10th minute and one from Peter Odemwingie in the 50th minute, came from West Brom either side of Eden Hazard’s header in the 39th minute. West Bromwich Albion took the game to Chelsea having 5 of their 9 shots on target.
If West Brom can keep up this form, especially being able to win at home and draw away, they will push to keep their fourth place position. Chelsea meanwhile do not look like a team that will challenge for the title at this rate.
