Match Predictions and Betting Odds
Chelsea’s last Premier League Game
In their last league match, Chelsea subjected Liverpool to their fifth successive loss at home via a stunning goal by Mason Mount, a curler into the bottom corner of the Liverpool goal on 42 minutes. The scoreline would have been better still if Chelsea’s forward Timo Werner had not had a goal disallowed via VAR for offside by the slimmest of margins. The result helped push Chelsea into the top four on the points table, 11 points clear of defending champions, Liverpool.
West Brom Albion’s Last Premier League Game
West Brom lost 0-1 to Everton at home in their last league game. With no goal up until 63 minutes, the match appeared to be heading for a draw. On 64 minutes, Gylfi Sigurdsson, introduced as substitute for Abdoulaye Doucoure, took a corner. He flicked in a perfect cross for Richarlison to power home with a header. West Brom were unlucky not to have an equaliser in the final seconds when a goal was ruled out by VAR.
