Video: Mbaye Diagne scores after Chelsea are fooled by backheel pass as West Brom hit fourth goal

Posted by

In the 67th minute of this afternoon’s game-week opening Premier League tie between Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion, the Baggies scored their fourth against the Blues.

The danger from a Reece James corner was cleared by the West Midlands outfit, with the ball being launched forward by Mbaye Diagne.

The silky Matheus Pereira shifted it out wide to Blues bogeyman Callum Robinson, who charged forward and played a lovely one-two with the Brazilian before unleashing Conor Townsend down the left.

Left-back Townsend fooled a tracking back Mason Mount and the Chelsea defensive line with a backheel pass into Pereira, with the playmaker taking a touch before slotting it across the box.

Diagne ran onto the ball and tucked it into the back of the net with a tidy finish.
