The Debrief: Tuchel’s Blues finally defeated as West Brom take their chances

Like London buses, the two goals from Matheus Pereira came in quick succession. In fact, just two minutes and 46 seconds separated each of the Brazilian’s strikes which turned the game on its head.

Those two goals came like a flash and were in stark contrast to the Chelsea rearguard we’ve come acclimatised to under our German head coach. We had previously not conceded in any of our first 674 minutes at home under Tuchel in all competitions before that quickfire brace.

West Brom take their chances

It’s fair to say the Baggies were utterly ruthless at Stamford Bridge yesterday, with Callum Robinson again proving a thorn in our side.

Sam Allardyce’s men really got their tails up once Thiago Silva was dismissed and impressive finishing from Pereira and Robinson did the damage.
