‘Antonio, Antonio,’ is chant being sung by Chelsea supporters as the final whistle is blow. A comfortable victory in the end. West Brom will look back at missed chances from Rondon and Rodriguez. Chelsea have Hazard and Moses to thank for their contributions.
The Blues move up to fourth place, while the Baggies remain rooted to the bottom and seven points adrift.
Chelsea did not exactly cruise on Monday night, but they were relatively comfortable compared to recent crises. The score did not flatter them, their goals were well taken, and if West Brom are by league position the worst team in the fixture schedule, they are also one fighting for their lives. They were the final league opponents of two Chelsea managers, Roberto Di Matteo and Andre Villas-Boas, and some thought a third might go had Chelsea lost on Monday night.
