Chelsea VS West Bromwich Albion
Sunday (11/12/2016)
13:00 (WAT)

Chelsea go into their Premier League game against West Brom this weekend full of confidence following a superb run that has seen the Blues win eight straight league games.

Antonio Conte's men secured another big victory last Saturday when they went to the Etihad Stadium and came from behind to beat title rivals Manchester City 3-1 to keep their place at the summit of the Premier League table.

Another test awaits Chelsea on Sunday, however, with seventh-placed West Brom visiting the capital. The Baggies are unbeaten in four league games, which includes a 2-1 away win over champions Leicester City.

Like the Blues, West Brom will arrive at the Bridge off the back of a big victory after they secured a 3-1 victory over Watford last weekend.

And, with the last match between Chelsea and West Brom at Stamford Bridge in January ending 2-2, fans can expect a close affair this Sunday.

Captain John Terry will miss the match against Tony Pulis’ side with a muscular problem, while Nemanja Matic is fit again following a calf strain.

Cesc Fabregas replaced Matic in Chelsea's starting line-up last week and he is set to keep his place in Conte's midfield, while Willian could replace Pedro and Michy Batshuayi could come in for Diego Costa with Conte admitting he will have to rotate his squad for the busy festive fixture list.

Defender David Luiz is also optimistic he will be fit after hurting his left knee against Manchester City last week. West Brom, meanwhile, will still not have goalkeeper Boaz Myhill available for selection due to his ankle injury.


Chelsea (3-4-3): Courtois, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Willian, Batshuayi, Hazard.

West Brom (4-2-3-1): Forster, Nyom, Evans, Dawson, McAuley, Phillips, Morrison, Fletcher, Brunt, Yacob, Rondon.
