Slumping Chelsea FC are certainly catching the right team at the right time to try and halt their slide. Taking on West Bromwich Albion in a Premier League fixture- that should definitely cure what ails ya! With Striker Alvaro Morata still injured and out of commission for this one, it’s an opportunity for new January transfer window signing Olivier Giroud to get his first start in a blue shirt potentially.
It still seems odd to many of us, seeing the long time Arsenal man in a Chelsea uniform.
The Sports Bank’s Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois
Defenders: Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen
Midfielders: N’Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas, Victor Moses, Marcos Alonso
Forwards: Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud, Willian
We made three changes from last week, in our lineup prediction versus Watford- Giroud for Pedro, Fabregas for Bakayoko and Christensen for Rudiger.
Odds via Sky Bet: Chelsea – 2/5 Draw – 19/5 West Brom – 15/2
