This result is quite unexpected. Because the previous 14 games, Chelsea which Thomas Tuchel commanded was invincible.
Of the last 10 matches in the Premier League, the Blues have conceded only two times. Chelsea are so strong in defense, good transitions, and anyone can score goals.
West Bromwich Albion manager, Sam Allardyce asked what the secret move to beat Chelsea? He replied, hit the defensive line!
“Letting them play from behind starting from the goalkeeper was a mistake,” he told talkSport.
“So, we pressed them including the two wingers,” he added.
“Their goalkeeper is also moving forward to play the ball. It was reckless for him,” added Sam Allardyce.
“We are satisfied to beat a better team than us,” he concluded.
