Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata ran riot as Chelsea bulldozed West Brom 4-0 at the Hawthorns to turn up the warmth on Tony Pulis.
As Antonio Conte commended his 50th Premier League coordinate in style, the differentiation to his inverse number in the hole couldn’t have been more noteworthy, as Pulis’ side never verged on staying away from a fourth back to back thrashing.
Conte kept David Luiz to the seat on his arrival to the squad yet the guests scarcely required protective fortification in cruising to their tenth win in 12 class away amusements.
On the ground where they fixed last season’s title, Chelsea hustled to a two-objective lead inside 23 minutes as Morata and Hazard traded helps for their quickfire objectives.
It was very simple for Marcos Alonso as he included a third from Cesc Fabregas’ set-piece in the 38th moment and the champions stayed in journey control until the point when Hazard finished his support with a well-taken second just past the hour.
The triumph sees Conte’s men in any event immediately move into second, however the weight on Pulis will just heighten with the Baggies now winless in all rivalries since August.
Furthermore, the challenge was everything except over considerably time as Alonso ghosted unmarked to the far post and volleyed in Fabregas’ coasted free-kick, guaranteeing the home side left the pitch to a theme of boos.
A confined Rondon kept on engaging hard after the restart and was denied a promising opening by Gary Cahill’s very much coordinated test, while Jake Livermore’s air-swing from the consequent corner nearly cost his side on the counter-assault.
Pulis had supplanted Grzegorz Krychowiak with Claudio Yacob at the break however the midfield change did little to fix up the gaps at the back, Morata discovering space to test Foster afresh.
Rather it was Hazard who was first to a support when he smoothly cut down Fabregas’ ball over the best, steadied and let go through the withdrawing defenders.
A misunderstanding with all due respect permitted substitute James McClean to walk through with a possibility for a reassurance, however the Republic of Ireland winger dragged his shot wide to aggregate up a hopeless evening for the hosts.
