Eden Hazard then doubled the lead Chelsea, who then increasingly dominate after West Brom lose Claudio Yacob, who was red-carded in the 29th minute.

first after 11 minutes made it difficult, “I Irvine at the BBC.
“We do have to have the form of games and disciplined, but has a direct (feel) lost after conceding two goals of course is not in accordance with what we want to achieve.
