Premier League champions Chelsea disappointed fans with a 3-0 away loss to West Brom in the penultimate game of their season. Nobody expected this outcome from a José Mourinho team that has been steady for the vast majority of the season.

Easily the most shocking from the UK football results last night, West Brom got off to an incredible start with a goal after only nine minutes from Saido Berahino. Cesc Fàbregas then earned a red card after 30 minutes for deliberately kicking the ball at a group of West Brom players.

Chelsea then conceded a Berahino penalty after 47 minutes before West Brom captain Chris Brunt added a third after 60 minutes. Chelsea held 60% of possession yet could only muster three shots on target to West Brom’s five.

Chelsea have the chance to atone on Sunday in a home fixture against Sunderland in what will be the final game of their season.
