West Brom vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Chelsea will secure the 2016-17 Premier League title with a win away at West Brom on Friday evening.

The Baggies have struggled towards the end of the season, although they did earn a decent point away at Burnley.

Two Sam Vokes goals denied them all three points in a surprisingly entertaining fixture.

Chelsea were too strong for Middlesbrough, with the result meaning the visitors were relegated from the Premier League.

Goals from Diego Costa, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic means the title is within touching distance.
