Faced with the red lantern, Chelsea, 4th, sees the ideal opportunity to revive after a series of poor performances. The Blues are going through a complicated period since the end of January and have their lead over Tottenham, 5th, and Arsenal, 6th, melt like snow in the sun. Antonio Conte’s players have recorded 3 defeats in their last 4 games. Eliminated by Arsenal (2-1) in League Cup, the London club has still qualified in the FA Cup with a success on Newcastle (3-0). A qualification that was not followed by success since Eden Hazard’s partners stumbled in the Premier League against Bournemouth (0-3) at Stamford Bridge and Watford (4-1) last Monday. West Bromwich, late last 4 points behind the 17th, knows the same fate as Chelsea. The Baggies have just lost to Manchester City (3-0) and lastly to Southampton (2-3). This move in the capital promises to be most perilous for the band in Pardew.
