Chelsea have moved up to third position in the Premier league, behind Manchester United, who beat Newcastle in the late game, and leaders Manchester City, who won at Leicester.
This became possible after Chelsea cruised to an easy away win over West Brom and overtook Spurs who lost two-nil in the London derby against Arsenal.
Alvaro Morata scored his eighth Premier League goal of the season when he converted a rebound after Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster had parried Eden Hazard’s low shot.
Hazard made it 2-0 shortly after when he collected Morata’s flick and took the ball around Foster, before Marcos Alonso volleyed in a third from Cesc Fabregas’ free-kick.
In the second half, Hazard scored his second of the game with a curled finish from 18 yards out after another excellent Fabregas pass.
The victory was Chelsea’s fourth successive league win, while West Brom remain without a win in all competitions since 22 August, a run of 11 games.
