West Brom v Chelsea: Champions will give no respite to unfancied Baggies

The Blues will want to finish the season in style by winning their remaining two games - and unlikely goal-getter John Terry can fire them to the first of those wins on Monday

1) Chelsea are due some goals, having scored more than 1 goal just once in their last 6 games. With the title now secure they can go out and play with more freedom, and so we could see a return to their free-scoring ways at the start of the season, where they scored 15 in their first 4 games. The Blues to score over 1.5 goals is priced at 11/10

2) After a run of 3 consecutive defeats which left them in danger of being drawn into a relegation battle, the Baggies have turned things around, and have won 2 and drawn 2 in their last 4 games – a run which included an impressive away victory against Man Utd

3) Mourinho’s men are unbeaten in 16 games, and have lost on just two occasions all season. Back them to increase this run and add to their 25 wins this campaign by defeating West Brom at 1/1

4) West Brom’s top scorer Saido Berahino, who has 12 goals this campaign, has not scored in over 2 months, his last goal coming in a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa at the start of March

5)With top scorer Diego Costa out injured, Chelsea have had to rely on goals from other players – whilst Eden Hazard springs to mind, they have also had help from John Terry, who has scored twice in his last 3 games, and whose 5 goals this campaign put him level with Philippe Coutinho and Andy Carroll. The Chelsea skipper is 8/1 to continue his unlikely run by scoring at anytime

6) These sides are often involved in low-scoring affairs, with 58% of both teams games having less than 2.5 goals. With Chelsea on a poor run of scoring form, and West Brom having averaged less than a goal per game this season, back there to be under 2.5 goals at 3/4

7) Mourinho’s men are strong starters, and have scored the opening goal in 78% of their games. With their hosts having conceded 62% of their goals this season in the first half, expect the first 45 minutes to be the half with the most goals, priced at 21/10
