PREDICTION
Both Chelsea and Liverpool will have a keen eye at goings on in the Hawthorns some 24 hours before. If Tottenham win and in-turn relegate West Brom then it will turn the screw on each of the two clubs in action on Sunday, albeit for slightly differing reasons.

For Chelsea it means the gap between them and Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be extended to eight points and should they fail to win at Stamford Bridge then their hopes of a Champions League place next season will finally be extinguished.

However, a win for Tottenham will also turn up the pressure on Liverpool in the race for the third place, a position that will do Spurs a huge favour should we see the scenario where Liverpool and Arsenal both win European silverware and finish outside the top four.

Chelsea come into this game having something of a resurgence as of late, winning their last three Premier League matches while also booking a place in the FA Cup final.

Liverpool have stuttered domestically in recently, with draws against struggling duo West Brom and Stoke. Should they go on to win the Champions League though, the ends will no doubt justify the means, but this is perhaps not the end to the domestic campaign that Jurgen Klopp will have wanted as they stutter towards the finishing line.

The best way to bounce back will be to beat Chelsea on their own turf and put a serious dent in their Champions League aspirations. The Blues will be up for this one and it could well be that the final score is a draw, making Tottenham the real winners without having to kick a ball.
