Opinion: 6 Reasons Chelsea Lost 5-2 To West Bromwich Albion

Who will believe West Bromwich Albion will defeat Chelsea at Stafford Bridge? Who will imagine Tuchel will concede his first goal today at Stafford Bridge? Well, that's the game of football especially in the English Premier League. See the possible reasons why the game ended 5-2 in favour of West Bromwich Albion.

Chelsea who were in control of the game through a Christian Pulisic's goal on the 27th minute, lost the game after Thiago Silva's red card. Indeed, his absence was felt after he left the pitch.

West Brom players out paced the Chelsea defence today as they kept attacking through the wings.

West Brom players were very smart as they beat the several offside traps by Chelsea defence. No wonder they were always ahead of the ball in Chelsea's half during counter attacks. Their positionings were very good. The offside trap shouldn't have come to play by the Chelsea defence.

The absence of Kanté was felt in the game. The dirty job was very bogey for Kovacic and Jorginho.

Olivier Giroud should have been introduced in the second half. Chelsea had chances to cross the ball, but there was no target man in the box. Timo Werner looked like a false 9 today.

And finally, Billy Gilmour should have been introduced in the second half to aid in the midfield battle.

What do you think?
