Chelsea return to action on Saturday following a break of almost a fortnight with an English Premier League fixture against struggling West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United last time out and will be looking to chalk up a fifth straight league success by beating The Baggies.

The home side go into the match without midfield pair Nacer Chadli and James Morrison who are sidelined with long-term injuries.

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis is coming under pressure with his side having failed to win any of their last 10 matches in all competitions while they have lost their last three.

Chelsea travel north without wing-back Victor Moses who continues to recover from a hamstring problem while forwards Charly Musonda and Michy Batshuayi are expected to miss out through injury. Defender Gary Cahill and midfielder Danny Drinkwater are available for selection after shaking off minor knocks.

Antonio Conte’s men have a good recent record against The Baggies with Chelsea completing a league double over Albion last season. The Blues lifted the English Premier League title with a 1-0 victory at The Hawthorns in May.

Their latest fixture against West Bromwich Albion is scheduled to kick-off at 3pm and the match has not been selected for live television coverage.
