3-4-2-1: Giroud and Luiz Starts, Bakayoko dropped in Chelsea probable line-up against West Brom

Chelsea suffered two consecutive disastrous defeats in the Premier League but they will be looking to avert an impending crisis when they take on West Bromwich Albion later tonight.

The Premier League Champions dropped to fifth place on the Premier League log and the place of Antonio Conte is hanging on a thread at the moment. Any result other than win for Chelsea would plunge the side into a crisis and possibly end the reign of Antonio Conte as the manager of the side.

Chelsea are fifth on the table and Roman Abramovich dislikes failure of his side to make it to the Champions League. However, Conte with his players can turn the fortune of the side with a win and dominant performance.

Meanwhile, the Baggies are also on the verge of a relegation dog fight and they will be hoping to cause a major upset in a bid to boost their Premier League survival.


Chelsea have been boosted by the return of diminutive Spaniard Pedro Rodriguez who picked up a knock in the Blues defeat to Watford City last Monday.

Andreas Christensen and Ross Barkley are both nursing hamstring injuries but the former is expected to be tested for full fitness ahead of the game. Meanwhile, Alvaro Morata, is also a major doubt as he continues to recover from a back injury.
