It is a bit strange to find both Chelsea FC and West Bromwich Albion so close to each other in the bottom half of the table at this stage of the season. However, this means that the Blues will have extra motivation, as mathematically this would be a six-pointer, with the 3 points from the match for the victors as well as the 3 point lost by the defeated side, and the winner would get to overtake the other team on the Premier League table.
