West Bromwich Albion host Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday in a 5:30pm kick-off at the Hawthorns as Brett Curtis brings you his bet builder, predictions and tips on the game.

Slaven Bilic’s side have had a tough start to life back in the top-flight, losing by three goals to both Leicester City and Everton in their opening two matches.

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea have had a mixed start, beating Brighton on the opening weekend before being humbled 2-0 at home to champions Liverpool last weekend.

Andreas Christensen’s sending off just before half-time was a major turning point, with Kepa Arrizabalaga’s catastrophic error handing Sadio Mané a free shot at goal to kill the game.

New goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, whose move from Rennes was finalised on Thursday, is unlikely to be available, meaning Willy Caballero should get the nod to stabilise the defence. The Argentina goalkeeper turns 39 on Monday.

Regardless of their issues between the posts, the Blues are firmly backed to bounce back with a win at 4/11. The draw is 15/4, with a West Brom win 8/1.

Bilic made 11 changes for the midweek penalty shoot-out defeat to Brentford in the EFL Cup, with former Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic making his debut for the club.

When asked whether the 36-year-old will start against the club he won three Premier League titles with, the Croat replied, “Why not?”

Conor Townsend is likely to start at left wing-back, with Kieran Gibbs suspended after his violent swipe at James Rodriguez in the 5-2 defeat at Goodison Park last weekend.

Lampard made eight changes in the 6-0 cup win over Barnsley, with Kai Havertz retaining his place and scoring a hat-trick to reward the faith shown in him by his manager.

The 21-year-old is 15/8 to build on that performance by scoring his first Premier League goal for the club (Sky Bet).

Compatriot and strike partner Timo Werner is odds-on at 4/5 to do likewise (bet365).

For the Baggies, Grady Diangana and Matheus Pereira both scored sensational goals from outside the area in the defeat to Everton and are well-priced at 5/1 (Unibet) and 6/1 (Betfair) respectively to score again.

Hal Robson-Kanu scored two goals from the penalty spot in defeat to Brentford but was substituted due to muscle tightness, so Callum Robinson is likely to lead the line once more. He’s 4/1 to score anytime (Betfair).

I don’t think you could go too far wrong with backing Chelsea to win and Both Teams To Score at 2/1 to be honest (bet365).

Chelsea landed this in eight of their 19 away league games last season, more than any side in the league, as well as in their only away game so far this season at Brighton.

West Brom showed their attacking threat at Everton but frankly look out of their depth at the back.

With that in mind, my bet365 Bet Builder will be Chelsea to score 2+ goals & to have 4+ corners, and West Brom to receive over 0 cards at odds of 4/5.

West Brom have picked up a card in both games so far while conceding five corners to Leicester and 11 at Everton.

This bet also covers the unlikelihood of them picking up a point – or even all three – in a high-scoring thriller.
