West Brom Thrash Chelsea 5-2 At Stamford Bridge

West Bromwich Albion stunned Chelsea Saturday at Stamford Bridge with a 5-2 victory.

Chelsea had taken the lead in the first match of the English Premier League after a return from international break.

This came via a goal by Christian Pulisic, who tapped into the net after a free-kick hit the post.

But the match turned upside down after defender Thiago Silva was sent off moments later for a late tackle on Okay Yokuslu.

Chelsea drew the first blood through Pulisic in the 27th minute.

Matheus Pereira equalised for the Baggies and then handed them the lead in dramatic turnaround during first-half stoppage time.

Callum Robinson rounded off a lovely flowing move to make it 3-1 after the break.

Then Mbaye Diagne rounded off a sweeping counter-attack to add a Baggies fourth.
