Classy Chelsea should make it four in a row
Kick-off 3pm Saturday
Talk of a successful Chelsea title defence has been almost non-existent but the Blues are only three points worse off than they were at the same stage last season and they can make it four league wins in a row by triumphing at the Hawthorns.
Tony Pulis usually steers teams to safety but his credit among West Brom supporters has been running out after a run of ten games without a win.
Albion have to face five of the big six before the end of the year but they do not appear to be playing well enough to trouble the top teams.
1pt 8-13 general
Nacer Chadli (hip) sustained a training-ground injury this week and has joined James Morrison (Achilles) on the sidelines.
Michy Batshuayi (ankle), Charly Musonda (knee) and Victor Moses (hamstring) are absent for the visitors.
Chelsea have won 16 of their last 21 Premier League away matches.
