Sam Allardyce Criticises Premier League after West Brom’s 5-2 win over Chelsea

West Brom manager, Sam Allardyce has criticised the Premier League after his side’s 5-2 win over Chelsea on Saturday.

The Englishman believes that the Premier League are making things difficult for West Brom with their hectic scheduling as they (his team) fight to avoid relegation.

West Brom produced what could be argued as the upset of the season on Saturday with a dramatic 5-2 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Prior to the game, Chelsea were unbeaten in 14 games under Thomas Tuchel.

But Sam Allardyce’s side inflicted a first defeat on Tuchel, scoring five goals in the process.

Matheus Pereira and substitute Callum Robinson both scored twice after Thiago Silva was sent off in the first half and Mbaye Diagne added the 5th.

Although Allardyce is aware that his side still face an uphill task in their battle to escape relegation, and are 7 points adrift of 17th place, he does not want the organizers to spoil their show.

“We don’t want the Premier League to spoil it for us as they’re trying to fit us in a game against Leicester who play in the cup on a Thursday and then asking to play Villa on the Sunday again,” Allardyce told talkSPORT after the game.

“They’ve already turned us over once by putting Everton on the Thursday and Newcastle on the Sunday and we only managed to get a point out of those games.

“We don’t want that again, as I think that was really unfair that they’re asking us to do that to give our players the right amount of rest to fight for survival.”

Allardyce said the club would appeal immediately if the decision is finalised.

The Baggies next match is against Southampton, a game the manager has vowed that they will try to win to keep their hope of remaining in the Premier League alive.
