West Brom came roaring back in their fight to avoid relegation and played brilliant football against Chelsea in the Stamford Bridge, a display that not many saw coming.
Matchday hero, Matheus Pereira bagged a brace to flip the game in first half stoppage time, before Callum Robinson moved to have sealed the victory after making it 3-1 before Mbaye Diagne fourth goal for West Brom.
Chelsea playmaker, Mason Mount scored in what seems to be a consolation goal to make it 4-2, and in the 71st minute, Chelsea fans hoped their side could mount a comeback .
But it was West Brom who got better this time as Robinson scored again leaving the score at 5- 2 full time.
Chelsea now sit at fourth on the premier league log while West Brom will surely see this as fuel to help them fight relegation with few games left to play.
