Here is how Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion will line up this evening:

Chelsea welcome West Bromwich Albion to Stamford Bridge this evening as the reigning Premier League champions look to get another three points on the board, but the Baggies will have ambitions of their own.

Chelsea are currently 14th in the table with 23 points from 20 matches while West Brom are two places and three points higher up as things stand.

Chelsea have a great recent home record against tonight’s opponents, unbeaten in their last 11 encounters, winning 10 and drawing one, and not losing a match in London against the Baggies since September 1978.

And when you consider West Brom have lost more Premier League matches against Chelsea than any other side things do not bode well for Tony Pulis’s men this evening.

Earlier this season Chelsea ran out 3-2 winners in a hard-fought victory and West Brom may well feel they have unfinished business after going so close to a win on that occasion.
