Match Venue: The Hawthorns

 

West Bromwich Albion

In spite of their opponents having remarkable successes at Manchester City and Newcastle United, West Brom were never intimidated of Chelsea. In their latest tourney, Victor Anichebe rallied through a late equalizer to level the points with The Blues. Chelsea looked to move four points clear at the top of the table after defender Branislav Ivanovic’s injury-time strike in the first half gave them the lead, but substitute Anichebe grabbed his third goal of the season in the 87th minute to make it 1-1 and prevent the Blues from widening their gap with the other clubs who trail them.

 

The Baggies are currently level on points with relegation candidates Sunderland, narrowly shunning the drop zone only with goal difference. Out of 26 matches, the side have just accumulated 24 points and scored 30 goals while conceding 38.

 

Fulham

Still agonizing on a possible exit from the English top-tier football, Fulham have to defy the odds in order to free themselves from the relegation zone, or from the table’s bottom to be more precise. They currently have the worst goal difference among all the clubs, and have suffered more defeats than any other squad. While they entered the new year with a victory over West ham United, their consistency issues thwarted them from winning any of their last seven matches.

 

Online betting tip: West Bromwich Albion and Fulham are only four points apart, but it is still a sizable difference nevertheless. Expect this tourney to be dominated by the hosts.
