Certainly we all didn't see a loss when we woke up on match day!
I actually thought we would win this with a big score-line, with all due respect to West Brom and Steve Clarke who has done a fantastic job on the team, they are definitely no match for Chelsea, at least the current Chelsea team.
Chelsea started the match well applying much pressure on West Brom but it was against the run of play when David Luiz our 'geezer' forgot all about defending and let go of Shane Long and before you could say 'IBRACADARA'(If you have a tight twisted tongue don't try pronouncing that).
Shane Long had given WBA the lead and the rest is history because I don't want to write a match report.
One obvious problem from the West Brom match was Ryan Bertrand - as much as you say this lad is decent and will become great at some point, you have to fault his problems, one of which is his positioning and overall play. He is still much at the learning process and doesn't give us that Ashley Cole feeling whenever he plays at left back.
He should be playing at left midfield for now until he learns fully from Cole how to play left back perfectly.
David Luiz - I won't stress on this one. Luiz seems to be losing focus; he should realize he is a defender and not an Instagram photographer!
Oriol Romeu - 'Barcelona reject' showed a bit of what he brings to the pitch during AVB's reign apart from that his performances have not been impressive, not even for a former Barcelona player or a Chelsea player.
Victor Moses - has had couple of good performances for the blues but against WBA he was just so sluggish on the ball and couldn't even go past 2 defenders like he normally does.
Daniel Sturridge - had a nice game especially after moving to his preferred centre forward role but his problem is that he isn't a clinical striker, chance after chance he wasted, assuming he could have just converted 2 of the numerous chances he got I won't be writing this article.
Finally Fernando Torres - world class to zero class. He`s been so, so appalling this season and against WBA nothing changed, No shots on goal, not even a tackle made by him, if I go on and on about this guy I won't stop.
His confidence is at a low, even my dad now thinks he can play better than our £50 million bundle of talent (Or no talent). We need a centre forward or else Torres will cost us the EPL title and even the Club World Cup.
