Video: Bogeyman Callum Robinson haunts Chelsea again with lob over Mendy to secure 5-2 win for West Brom

In the 90th minute of this afternoon’s game-week opening Premier League tie between Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion, the Baggies sealed a 5-2 win to embarrass the Blues.

Sam Allardyce’s side flicked the ball around after a clearance, seeing Callum Robinson shift the ball to target-man Mbaye Diagne.

Diagne rolled it over to silky playmaker Matheus Pereira, who made a pass through to Robinson look absolutely effortless.

Robinson, the Aston Villa graduate who is always a nightmare for the West London outfit, lifted the ball over an on-rushing Edouard Mendy with a wonderful little lob to pile the misery onto Thomas Tuchel.
