Baggies shock 10-man Chelsea

Cesc Fabregas' bizarre red card capped a wretched night for Chelsea as the champions were shocked 3-0 by West Brom.

Saido Berahino's double ended his own nine-game drought as he made it 20 goals for the season for the Baggies.

Chris Brunt added a third to compound Chelsea's miserable night in the West Midlands as their 16-game unbeaten league run ended.

And Fabregas' first-half dismissal will go down as one of the most mindless in the history of the Premier League.

The midfielder saw red after kicking the ball against the side of Brunt's head as referee Mike Jones took control of a clash between Gareth McAuley and Diego Costa.

The champions were afforded a guard of honour as they came onto the pitch but the well-drilled Baggies refused to stand on ceremony to claim a deserved win.

Chelsea rarely threatened, even before Fabregas walked, although Loic Remy hit the post in the second half.
