West Brom hammer Chelsea 5-2

Matheus Pereira and Callum Robinson bagged a brace each as lowly West Brom blitzed 10-man Chelsea 5-2 to end the 14-match unbeaten start to Thomas Tuchel’s tenure at Stamford Bridge.

It looked to be business as usual as Chelsea shot into the lead in the 27th minute when Christian Pulisic followed up after Marcos Alonso’s free-kick came off the post.

But Thiago Silva was shown a red card two minutes later for a rash challenge on Okay Yokuslu, and it all came apart for the Blues.

Pereira then applied a cute finish over Edouard Mendy before he finished off a gorgeous move with a low strike between three defenders to give Sam Allardyce’s men the lead into the interval.

West Brom then went for the jugular as substitute Robinson made it 3-1 with a sensational side-foot volley before Mbaye Diagne finished off a sweet move with an even sweeter strike.

Substitute Mason Mount tapped in to reduce the deficit but the Baggies resisted other Chelsea threats before Robinson capped off a great day for the visitors with a clipped finish past a flailing Mendy.

The Baggies were as brilliant as the Blues, who had Thiago Silva sent off in the 29th minute, were abject.

The result moves the 19th-placed Baggies to within seven points of 17th-placed Newcastle as the relegation battle continues.
