West Bromwich Albion vs. Chelsea: Lineups & Game Thread

Jamie McDonald

"It's a tough game, we've lost on our last two visits and when we played them earlier in the season we scored a late equaliser. They are a good team and when they play at home there is always a big atmosphere. It's very difficult to play there so we need to go there with the right mentality and produce a top performance if we want to win the game."

Mourinho keeps things simple and keeps the pedal to the metal with arguably our strongest (available) lineup.  One change from the weekend, with a well-rested Ramires coming in for Frank Lampard to partner Matic in the midfield.  Torres makes the bench following his injury rehab.

Let's get those three points!  Destiny is in our control.
