WBA 0 v Chelsea 3 - Half

WBA 0 v Chelsea 3 - Half

West Bromwich Albion are stuck in a rut under Tony Pulis, a manager everyone associated with the Baggies thought would be gone by the end of the worldwide break in November.

Manager Tony Pulis is coming under increasing pressure with his side's slide down the top flight table, with just a point now separating them from the relegation zone.

"Chadli missed the pre-season, we played him in a game and a half and he did not feel 100 per cent fit".

If so, Pulis is remaining philosophical about his life but defiant in the face of his critics.

Eden Hazard's two goals capped an outstanding team display from champions Chelsea as they moved up to second in the Premier League.

"The last time I had a run like this was at Stoke 13 years ago".

"If you don't get results then you're under pressure".

As Antonio Conte celebrated his 50th Premier League match in style, the contrast to his opposite number in the dugout could not have been greater, as Pulis' side never came close to avoiding a fourth consecutive defeat. "In the three years I've been here this club has been nowhere near getting relegated".

As they seek goals, West Brom will be without resident creator Nacer Chadli, who joins James Morrison on the injury list.

"I'm really disappointed, but what has happened is the expectations have gone through the roof", he said.

That last remark may have been a message to the club's Chinese owner, Guochuan Lai, about what he might be about to give up.

"They've had supporters carrying managers (Bryan Robson) around the pitch on the last game of the season because of results going for them that have kept them up".

Before the game, Pulis hit back at the fans in his programme notes by starting a staunch defence of his time at The Hawthorns with the words, 'Talking about reminding people'.

The frustration this season is compounded because of a feeling Pulis is working with the best squad West Brom have assembled in the Premier League era, after more than £40m was spent in the summer to bring in Burke, Jay Rodriguez, Kieran Gibbs and Gareth Barry among others as well as Grzegorz Krychowiak on loan.
