West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson believes that his side can take all three points at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
The Baggies received a 6-0 thrashing in their last visit to the Bridge, and they also made a disappointing start to their campaign last weekend, losing 2-1 to current champions Manchester United at home. But Hodgson is convinced that this time around his team can put up more of a fight and get a result themselves.
“We are going there (Stamford Bridge) as the underdogs and that is fairly obvious,” said Hodgson.
“When most teams go to Stamford Bridge, they are the underdogs but we showed against Manchester United last weekend that we are not a bad football team and I have great confidence in the team.”
“This time our aim is to get a good result which would be either a draw or a victory,” continued the 64-year-old.
“We didn’t get it against Manchester United but the manner of the performance gave me great hope and my message to the players is that it will be every bit as tough as it was against Manchester United.”
