Jose Mourinho has been cutting a frustrated figure over the last week or so. It’s not been an auspicious start to the new season for him and his Blues are drifting all over the place when it comes to odds on them winning silverware this season.
A 2-2 draw against Swansea and a 3-0 hammering dished out by title rivals Man City is all that the Blues have to show for themselves so far. There could be more frustrations on the cards as the Blues head to the Hawthorns to face West Brom on Sunday.
The Baggies have a W3 D1 record on home soil against the Blues from the last four occasions of hosting the Stamford Bridge crew. The Baggies are a heavy 11/2 underdogs for the win, but punters may be tempted by the draw. West Brom haven’t scored a goal yet this season and like Chelsea only a have point to their name. But they do have the home form and who will be trying Chelsea away from home at short odds of 4/7 at the moment?
West Brom boss Tony Pulis has won two Premier League matches against The Special One and no manager has won three EPL games against him. But Mourinho’s last six defeats in the top flight have come against a manager who has a surname starting in P (Pulis, Poyet, Pardew, Pochettino, Pulis, Pellegrini).
Incidentally, both Roberto Di Matteo and Andre Villas-Boas managed their last Premier League game as Chelsea boss against WBA at the Hawthorns before they were sacked. Mourinho is a 12/1 quote at William Hill to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post.
