Chelsea vs West Brom


Chelsea have enjoyed a massive upturn of fortunes ever since Thomas Tuchel took over the reins of the club earlier this year. The Blues are currently on a 15-game unbeaten run in all competitions with 14 of those matches overseen by Tuchel. The last time they were in action, Chelsea ousted Sheffield United from the FA Cup to make it to the semi-finals.

Their previous league game had ended in a goalless draw against Leeds United, which allowed the likes of West Ham and Tottenham to close the gap to the west London side in the fourth spot. And Chelsea will be hoping to put further gap between themselves and the chasing pack as the race for top four heats up.

West Brom, meanwhile, look doomed for relegation. Sam Allardyce has not been able to work his magic since replacing Slaven Bilic as the manager, with the Baggies languishing in the 19th spot, ten points off of safety. West Brom are without a win in their last three games, with their latest fixture ending in a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace.


Team News

Jorginho, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Edouard Mendy, Tammy Abraham and Thiago Silva will all face late fitness tests but Ngolo Kante is out of today’s clash.

Sam Allardyce has a fully-fit squad to choose from.


Chelsea are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League meetings with West Brom (W5 D2), coming from 0-3 down at half-time to draw 3-3 in the reverse fixture at the Hawthorns this season.


West Brom are winless in their last 15 away league games against Chelsea (D3 L12) since a 3-1 win in September 1978. In the Premier League, the Baggies have lost 10 of their 12 visits to Stamford Bridge (D2), failing to score on nine occasions in that run.


Chelsea are yet to concede a single goal in their five Premier League home games under Thomas Tuchel. In English top-flight history, the only team to keep a clean sheet in their first six home games under a specific manager are Manchester City under Ron Saunders in 1973-74.


Leicester City vs Manchester City

Leicester City have enjoyed another solid campaign under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers and this time around, it looks like the Foxes might be able to clinch a top-four finish. As things stand, the former Premier League champions are third on the table, five points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea, with West Ham United a further two points behind in fifth.

Manchester City, on the other hand, have recovered from a horrendous start to the campaign that once saw them sit perilously close to the relegation zone before becoming runaway leaders in the Premier League. Currently perched atop the standings, Pep Guardiola & co. are 14 points clear of neighbours Manchester United and are the odds-on favourites to win the title come May.

The reverse fixture, played at the Etihad back in September, saw Leicester City come from behind to beat Manchester City 5-2, with Jamie Vardy scoring a match-winning hat-trick.


Team News

Leicester City

Leicester City are without Harvey Barnes and full-back James Justin. Meanwhile, Ricardo Pereira, Wes Morgan and Cengiz Under are doubtful. James Maddison is back in training but is not fully fit. He may still play some part in the game.

Manchester City

Manchester City have a fully-fit squad against Leicester, despite the international break’s strenuous requirements from players.


Leicester are looking to complete their first league double over Manchester City since the 1986-87 season, following their 5-2 win at the Etihad earlier this season.


Manchester City have conceded just eight away goals in the Premier League this season, with Tottenham in November the only side to score more than once at home to the Citizens this term (2-0). Man City have won each of their last eight away league games by an aggregate score of 22-3.


Leicester are looking to win three consecutive Premier League games for the fourth time this season, and first since January. However, the Foxes have lost 13 of their last 15 Premier League meetings against the league leaders (D2) since winning 1-0 at Manchester United in January 1998.


Leicester striker Kelechi Iheanacho has scored five goals in his last three Premier League games, netting his first ever hat-trick in the competition against Sheffield United last time out. With six league goals this term, this is the Nigerian’s best goalscoring season in the Premier League since his maiden campaign with Man City in 2015-16 (8).


Arsenal vs Liverpool preview

Arsenal have endured another difficult season in 2020/21, which is set to end with failure to qualify for the UEFA Champions League once again. The Gunners have typically blown hot and cold in the Premier League despite an improvement in their playing style. Mikel Arteta & co. have won just four of their last 10 in the top-flight and are currently placed 9th on the table.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have endured a disastrous defence of their Premier League crown. While the Reds were right in the thick of things in the title race before the turn of the year, 2021 has come with a stunning downturn in form. The defending champions have managed to win just four of the 14 league games they have played this year, shockingly losing eight matches.

The reverse fixture, played at Anfield back in September, saw Liverpool come back from a goal down to beat Arsenal 3-1.


Arsenal vs Liverpool Team News

Willian and Bukayo Saka should be fit to return after missing the 3-3 draw against West Ham prior to the international break, although Emile Smith Rowe is a doubt after picking up an injury on duty with the England under-21 squad.

Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi are in contention after missing the last couple of games prior to the international break due to injury and Caoimhin Kelleher will be assessed, but Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson remain sidelined.


Arsenal won this exact fixture 2-1 last season and are looking to beat Liverpool in consecutive home league games for the first time since April 2015.
