Chelsea are dead and buried at Stamford Bridge after Callum Robinson scored West Brom’s third goal of the afternoon.
The Blues took the lead in the first-half through Christian Pulisic, but when Thiago Silva was shown a red card for a second bookable offence, the game turned on its head.
Matheus Pereira scored a quick-fire double before the break to put the Baggies ahead and leave Thomas Tuchel’s men with a mountain to climb.
Tuchel brought on Mason Mount in hope of turning the tide in Chelsea’s favour, but the Blues failed to find the equaliser, with West Brom now adding a third.
Sam Allardyce’s men were quite phenomenal in the build-up, with the finish from Callum Robinson absolutely emphatic.
