West Brom vs Chelsea 12 May 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Whereas Tottenham Hotspur fluffed their lines at the London Stadium last Friday, Chelsea continued their title push on Monday night with the calmness and consistency we've come to expect from Antonio Conte's side this season.

Reports state that tickets for the game at the Hawthorns are already being sold on the black market for far greater than face value as Chelsea's fans jostle to witness their fifth title in the Premier League era and their sixth overall. This is the Baggies' only success over teams above them all season as their record reads W1-D2-L9 in such encounters. "West Brom will want to play a good game against us, but we are ready".

"I think the most important thing is the football club, a terrific football club...it's not about my situation, it's about finishing the season well and making sure Middlesbrough can bounce back".

Chelsea announced it had appointed Conte, 47, on a three-year contract in April 2016 and he took up his post at Stamford Bridge in July after managing Italy at Euro 2016. We played a very good game and knew exactly what we had to do and in the end it was a comfortable win. We need to gain more points.

Matic told Chelsea TV: "After every bad game we always recover very quickly, we always respond very well and win".

"Then, through work, through hard work, he improved a lot".

Trump says he may choose a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director by Friday
President Trump threatened former FBI Director James Comey around the possibility that their private conversations were recorded. Trump said in excerpts of an NBC News interview released Friday that Comey "should have never exonerated" Hillary Clinton.

Last night Sam Wallace of the Telegraph reported that the Italian manager was ready to sign a new deal, and would be committing his future to Roman Abramovich's club the moment the season was over.

He is the most defensive player to with the PFA's award since Terry and his impact has been huge in allowing his side to control games in a title winning season.

"This development of Cesc is our development, because we started the season with a lot of problems".

"I'm pleased for him, because I saw this season he put himself in this team in every moment, if he played and if he didn't play".

However, eighth-placed West Brom are still chasing their own goals of a top-half finish and the five points they need to reach 50 and eclipse their best-ever Premier League tally.

"We have three games to go, three points we have to take to be champions", Matic said.
