To be played on Wednesday 13th January 2016 at 19:45. Venue: Stamford Bridge, London

Odds: Chelsea 4/11, Draw 18/5, West Brom 8/1

Chelsea welcome West Bromwich Albion to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday as both sides get back to Premier League action following their recent FA Cup exploits.

Chelsea overcame Scunthorpe United 2-0 in the third round of that competition while the Baggies were held to a 2-2 draw against Bristol City with James Morrison’s last-gasp goal saving West Brom’s blushes.

Now it is back to league matters with Chelsea currently 14th in the table on 23 points and West Brom two places and three points better off with 20 matches played.

In early team news, Chelsea are without the injured Eden Hazard while Radamel Falcao is rated at only 25 per cent to feature.

The Blues also have minor doubts regarding Oscar, Nemanja Matic, Diego Costa and Loic Remy.

As for West Brom, they have minor doubts when it comes to the fitness of Jonas Olsson and Victor Anichebe but both are rated at 75 per cent to be ready if called upon.
