Chelsea have hit the headlines this week with manager Rafael Benitez angering large sections of Chelsea fans. Looking at their recent form however reveals a side unbeaten in their last 5 home games. West Brom seemed to be a side on the slide however two consective wins against Liverpool and Sunderland will give them confidence going into this game against a side with clear interal problems.
One key omission from the West Brom side will be Romelu Lukaku who is ineligible to play against his parent club. Whilst Chelsea aren’t in scintilating form they are under real pressure to pick up all three points if they want to remain in the top four with both Arsenal and Tottenham all in close proximity.
