West Brom vs Chelsea: Premier League prediction, team news, line-ups, start time, live, TV

Chelsea return to the Hawthorns for the first time since their Premier League title-clinching victory of last season when they face West Brom.

Michy Batshuayi's sole goal secured the Blues' 28th league win of the campaign in May on the way to a record-breaking season, but their title defence this term has been underwhelming at times.




A win over Manchester United last time out was a much-needed positive note after a string of unimpressive performances both home and in European competition in the weeks preceding.

West Brom, meanwhile, have not won since August and serious questions are being asked of Tony Pulis's job security midway through a campaign for the first time in his managerial career.

Start time

West Brom host Chelsea at the Hawthorns with kick-off scheduled for 3pm on Saturday, November 18.

TV and live online coverage

Team news

West Brom
Nacer Chadli and James Morrison have been ruled out for West Brom.

 Belgium international Chadli has suffered a hip injury and could be out for a number of weeks, with boss Tony Pulis unhappy he played twice for Belgium during the international break.

Morrison has undergone surgery on his Achilles and no return date has been set for the Scotland international, who has played just six times this season.




Chelsea
David Luiz is back in the Chelsea squad for following his tactical omission against Manchester United prior to the international break.

Striker Michy Batshuayi (ankle) is out and forward Charly Musonda (knee) is also expected to be missing on Saturday, but defender Gary Cahill (back) and midfielder Danny Drinkwater (calf) are fit following knocks.

Right wing-back Victor Moses is about a week away from training as he recuperates from a hamstring injury.

Predicted line-ups

West Brom starting XI: Foster; Nyom, Hegazi, Evans, Gibbs; McClean, Krychowiak, Barry, Livermore, Phillips; Rondon



Chelsea starting XI: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill; Zappacosta, Fabregas, Kante, Alonso; Pedro, Morata, Hazard
