Match Preview: Top Star Makes Return For Chelsea’s Clash Against West Brom

Chelsea will lock their horns against West Brom in the Premier League on the weekend. The match is going to be a highly important for the Blues as they will be determined to get a win to get back in the top four positions in the League Table to earn the qualification in the UEFA Champions League next season.

 

The Blues are reportedly interested in West Ham loanee Joe Hart. The Manchester City outcast was discarded by Pep Guardiola two seasons ago as he didn’t fit into his plans. Hart was then loaned out to Serie A outfit Torino were he put in a series of average performances. The two time Premier League Champion was then sent out on loan to fellow premier league club West Ham United.

The Blues will certainly find it tough to replace a keeper of Courtois stature but they are showing a strong interest in Joe Hart. The latter has been benched by former Manchester United manager David Moyes as he has not been up to the mark he is supposed to be.

Antonio Conte is under intense scrutiny as the teams performance has been below par. 3-0 and 4-1 loss to Premier League minnows Bournemouth and Watford respectively has not gone down well with the Stamford Bridge hierarchy as they are looking to replace the Italian with former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique.

The former Juventus manager is calm about his situation at the club as he has assurance from the board that his job is safe and will honour his contract. Chelsea have a series of tough fixtures ahead as they face European giants Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League’s round of 16 fixture and will also lock horns against League leaders Manchester City, will Conte weather the storm and keep his job safe only time will tell.

 

Chelsea are currently at fifth position in the League Table and they are also in the fifth round of FA Cup where they will face Hull City.
