West Brom have not won any of their last nine Premier League matches, the current longest streak in the division.

Since their last win which came in the second weekend of the season, their record under Tony Pulis is - D4, L5, GF 7, GA 14.

West Brom have the lowest average possession in the Premier League at present at just 40.3%.

They are also bottom of the league when it comes passing accuracy, with just a 71.2% pass completion rate.

When it comes to efficiency in front of goal, West Brom require an average of 10.6 shots per Premier League game before they score a goal.

This is West Brom's lowest points tally after 11 games of a Premier League season (10) since 2005-06 (eight) - when they were relegated.

Cesc Fàbregas (Chelsea) has delivered the most corners in the Premier League this season, with 46.

Chelsea require an average of 7.9 shots on goal per game before they find the net in the Premier League this season.

Chelsea have the lowest average possession (52.1%) and passing accuracy (82.2%) of the teams that are in the top six of the Premier League.

Alvaro Morata has had a hand in 10 goals in his opening 10 Premier League games for Chelsea (seven goals, three assists).

The Spanish international has played a total of 722 Premier League minutes and this means he has a minutes-to-goal ratio of 103.

He has forged an exceptional partnership with defender Cesar Azpilicueta, as the defender has assisted five of Morata’s goals this season.

The last time these two sides met at The Hawthorns it would lead to plenty of celebrations for Chelsea as this is where they captured the Premier League title last season. Michy Batshuayi’s late goal would be the one that clinched the title for Antonio Conte’s men.
