The English Premier League season got off to a surprising start on Saturday, April 13, when relegation-threatened West Brom prevailed 5-2 at Stamford Bridge, giving Thomas Tuchel his first defeat as Chelsea boss.

Chelsea were down to 10 men for the remainder of the game after Thiago Silva was sent off just moments after Christian Pulisic gave the Blues the lead in the first half.

However, West Bromwich Albion, who are battling for their life in the relegation zone, played fantastic football against Chelsea in the Blues’ own backyard.
