Nacer Chadli had a golden opportunity to put West Brom up and delay Chelsea's championship celebration but he dragged his shot wide and Chelsea scored not long after to win 1-0 and secure the 2016-17 Premier League title.
West Brom gave more than a good accounting of themselves on the day. The Baggies didn't dominate any statistical category but the chances they had were good ones and while they limited the Champions elect to some fairly soft chances. That all changed in the 82nd minute when a scramble in the box saw Cesar Azpilicueta slide the ball to Michy Batshuayi running wide open in front of goal. Ben Foster made contact but couldn't keep the effort out and that was the difference as Chelsea took all three points and the league title home to Stamford Bridge. May 12 - 5:04 PM

Nacer Chadli claimed the only West Brom shot on target as Albion fell 2-0 to Watford at Vicarage Road on Tuesday in Week 31 action.

Chadli could have sent Tony Pulis' side off to an early lead had he converted in the early going. Heurelho Gomes was up to the task and made a save that came back to Chadli for a second crack at it but the second opportunity wasn't on target and that was it for Albion for the evening. Despite playing the final 25 minutes plus stoppage time up a man West Brom didn't register another shot on target. Not a great follow-up to taking a good point at Old Trafford over the weekend. To make matters worse, they will be without Miguel Britos for their next match.

Nacer Chadli picked up a shoulder injury over the international break and faces a late fitness test ahead of West Brom's trip to Old Trafford.

Chadli picked up his shoulder injury while with Belgium over the international break and could miss Albion's high profile match-up as a result. With Matt Phillips still out nursing a hamstring injury Tony Pulis' side are definitely at a deficit when it comes to creative attacking options. Throw in that Salomon Rondon returned later than most from international duty and it could be a significantly depleted attack against an improving Manchester United defense.

West Brom struggled to generate an attack all day as they fell 2-0 to Crystal Palace at the Hawthorns.

Nacer Chadli registered West Brom's first shot on target of the match but it wasn't until the second half and it wasn't particularly dangerous. That about summed up the day for Tony Pulis' side who just never really clicked on the day.

Nacer Chadli is likely to take advantage of James Morrison's illness to secure his second consecutive start on Monday.

Chadli lost his job through a combination of injury and the returning James Morrison. It looks like he'll have a chance to win it back with illness likely ruling Morrison out for Albion's Boxing Day trip to the Emirates. Chadli is exactly the sort of player, one with both power and pace, that gives Arsenal's center backs fits so don't be surprised if the big Belgian helps his former Spurs teammates by giving the Gunners a hard time on Boxing Day.

Nacer Chadli is back and, due to Salomon Rondon's absence, could be moved up to a forward role against Watford this weekend.

For those who have been frustrated by Chadli's injury, consider this potential compensation for your patience. With Salomon Rondon out with tonsillitis and Saido Berahino still depressed/out of shape/out of favor, Chadli is the logical candidate to slot into the center forward role. It could be a nice fantasy return for the Belgian international.

Having already missed four matches, Nacre Chadli has yet to be cleared for action against Hull City on Saturday.

The highs of Chadli's early season performances have been muted somewhat after he has missed the last few matches out injured. His return is further complicated by West Brom's excellent Week 12 performance that saw James Morrison ignite a four goal attack. Chadli should start but exactly where he plays is less certain assuming he does return this week.

Nacer Chadli is the only injury concern for Tony Pulis ahead of Monday’s game against Burnley at the Hawthorns.

The summer signing from Spurs who has been a revelation since his arrival, four goals and two assists, went under the knife earlier this month to tidy up a niggling cartilage complaint. Chadli will train outside for the first time on Thursday and Pulis will leave any decision regarding his involvement until the last moment. Otherwise, the Baggies boss is not expecting any last-minute surprises. Saido Berahino has returned from his training camp in France: "We are pleased fitness-wise, the next step is for him to get some games and hopefully that will happen in the next few weeks." Meanwhile, Salomon Rondon [tight hamstring] "will be fine" and defender Jonas Olsson is also available following his recovery from a minor muscular issue.

West Brom's director of performance, Dr. Mark Gillett confirmed Nacer Chadli is in line to return from injury next weekend.

Gillett said Chadli missed the match against Leicester after undergoing a minor operation to remove cartilage around his meniscus. But the former Spurs midfielder is in contention to face Burnley next weekend: "With this being the last international break before the winter we wanted to get it done so he went for surgery in Belgium which has gone extremely well. He should be available for selection for the Burnley game. He’s progressing well and he’s in contention. Whether he’s picked for that game after the last result we’ll wait and see."

Nacer Chadli will miss Albion's Week 11 trip to Leicester City after having a minor knee surgery.

Since coming over from Spurs at the transfer deadline, Chadli has been Tony Pulis' best attacker. Missing the Belgian for a difficult test against the reigning champions will be hard to compensate for. It will be up to some combination of James Morrison, Chris Brunt and Jon Leko to make up for Chadli's attacking drive with Saido Berahino still isolated from the squad as he rebuilds his fitness.

Nacer Chadli was back at it for Tony Pulis with a goal but Albion couldn't keep the lead and ended up settling for their second 1-1 draw on the trot away to Sunderland.

Chadli was frequently dangerous and it was his driving run that broke the nil-nil deadlock in the 35th minute. Sunderland's equalizer had something of the unintentional about it. Jan Kirchoff was stretchered off early in the second half and replaced by Patrick Van Aanholt. It was Van Aanholt who scored the equalizer in the 83rd minute to double the Black Cats' points haul for the season.

Nacer Chadli exploded for two goals and two assists last weekend and now faces the bottom team in the league. He could be primed for a great encore.

After languishing on the bench at White Hart Lane for a couple of years and showing flashes of great potential when given opportunities, Nacer Chadli has a starting role after his move to the Hawthorns. After a tepid debut he took full advantage of the opportunity to play a central attacking role putting up two goals and two assists in Week 5. He isn't likely to repeat those numbers again but with Stoke City Albion's Week 6 hosts another very productive match is a reasonable expectation.

A stunning Nacer Chadli performance against West Ham inspired the Baggies to their first Premier League home win since the beginning of March.

The club-record £13m fee paid to Spurs for the Belgium midfielder looks to be a snip if Saturdays’ display against a seriously out-of-form Hammers side is anything to go by. Chadli played a direct part in all of the opening goals as West Brom stormed into a 4-0 lead after less than an hour. His penalty on 8 minutes helped the home side to the perfect start while assists for Rondon [37] and McClean [44] were sandwiched between his second which he poked home after 56 minutes. West Ham threatened an unlikely [and undeserved comeback] following two-goals in quick succession but the Baggies held out and that’s how the score remained. James Morrison came on for the limping Chadli with a quarter of an hour to go, but the midfielder confirmed: "There was no injury. I had a bit of cramp. I couldn’t run anymore."

Disgruntled manager Tony Pulis may have finally found his man to lead the West Brom attack in Nacer Chadli.

The summer signing from Tottenham had a career day, contributing to every one of the club's goals with two goals and two assists in a 4-2 win against West Ham at the Hawthorns. The Baggies tore apart West Ham from the start, with Chadli registering his first goal from the penalty spot in the eighth minute. The club jumped out to a 3-0 lead before halftime and extended it to four thanks to Chadli, before the Hammers fought back for two goals. In team news, Hal Robson-Kanu and Allan Nyom made their club debuts off the bench.

The newly arrived Belgian midfielder had a humdrum start to life under Tony Pulis that saw Albion shut out and Chadli contribute little of note.

There was a lot of hope for Chadli after some bright performances for Spurs as a reserve. He is powerful and direct which seems like a solid profile for a Tony Pulis attacker as well as one who can flourish in a fantasy universe that rewards peripheral contributions like shots on target and successful dribbles. Chadli didn't show a great deal of that promise in his Albion debut as he managed only a single successful take-on as his only attacking contribution. There were sporadic defensive stats (2 aerial duels won, 2 tackles won, an interception and a successful clearance) but not nearly enough to justify a starting spot in draft/auction leagues. Don't give up on him yet but it certainly wasn't the debut that managers and supporters were hoping for.
