Headline Wins for West Brom and Lille

West Brom Players Celebrate

Club Football returned after the international break, so much to the delight of many football fans. There weren’t many surprises this weekend, save for Chelsea’s heavy defeat at home to relegation-battling West Brom.

The match which ended 5-2 in favour of the visitors, handed Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel his first loss at home since taking over from club legend, Frank Lampard in January.  The defeat sees the London Club stutter in their bid to tighten their grip on 4th position after Matheus Pereira and Callum Robinson inspired the Baggies to a sensational performance, albeit Chelsea reduced to 10 men.
