PREDICTION
After successive Premier League defeats the pressure is mounting on Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, and in addition to that if results go against them this weekend then the Blues could go into this game lying 5th in the table. Alan Pardew's West Brom are also in desperate need of points because they are beginning to find themselves cast adrift in the battle to beat the drop, and another defeat on Monday would only make the task of staying up even tougher. Chelsea will be the favourites to win this match but if they don’t bounce back then the ramifications of such a failure could be huge.

MEMORABLE MEETING
May 2017 saw Chelsea travel to the Hawthorns to face West Brom and they would have cause to celebrate. Not only did they earn maximum points thanks to Michy Batshuayi’s late winner but the goal from the Belgian international was enough for the Blues to clinch the Premier League title.
