Typical Chelsea start to the season, not that impressive but still walking away with the win under their belt. As always they take 5 games to warm up before the blue charm and flare is ignited. I feel this is going to be a really close league this season with nobody being outright favorites but only time shall tell.

West Brom have really been unlucky with their first two matches. They have led Man U and Chelsea 1-0 before ending up as 2-1 losers in both the matches. Yesterday, Chelsea was lackluster in the first half, but then started to find their foot in the second half. The first goal was a bit lucky with the deflection, but the second one was really a good good goal for Chelsea. Cheers! Ram
