Ba eases Benitez's woes
Chelsea claimed a routine 1-0 win over West Brom as Rafael Benitez made a victorious Stamford Bridge return following his midweek criticism of Blues supporters.
Demba Ba's 28th-minute goal saw Chelsea return above Tottenham to third place in the Barclays Premier League for 24 hours at least, ahead of Sunday's north London derby.
West Brom had not won a league match at Chelsea in almost 35 years, and although owner Roman Abramovich may be content with Benitez in charge until the end of the season and a fifth win in seven games, that may not be enough to appease Blues fans.
