Defensive blunders from Chelsea left them trailing 3-0 at halftime, with Callum Robinson opening the scoring with a low drive into the far corner after Marcos Alonso’s initial sloppy header.

A chance came begging later for the Blues but Tammy Abraham missed the glorious opportunity to get Chelsea back in the game before Timo Werner also hit the crossbar but Robinson again sent West Brom 2-0 up capitalising on Premier League debutant Thiago Silva’s miscontrol to slot one below Willy Caballero in the 25 minutes into the game.

A woeful marking from Chelsea resulted in a third goal for West Brom as Kyle Bartley slotted one to the corner of the post but Mason Mount’s long range shot in the second half gave the Blues hopes.

Callum Hudson-Odoi came in from the bench and his fine finish in the 70th minute increased Chelsea’s hopes of a comeback as they fought on to at least take a point home from the Hawthorn.

A tap in from Tammy Abraham 3 minutes into stoppage time after Sam Johnstone had parried Mason Mount’s low effort completed Chelsea’s marvellous comeback after a defensive howler in the first half as the Blues ended the game with a point shared by all.
