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."

West Bromwich Albion starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Ben Foster | Liam Ridgewell, Craig Dawson, Gareth McAuley, Steven Reid | Morgan Amalfitano, Claudio Yacob | Chris Brunt, James Morrison, Thievy Bifouma | Saido Berahino

Substitutes from: Boaz Myhill, Youssouf Mulumbu, Diego Lugano, Graham Dorrans, Zoltán Gera, Victor Anichebe, Matej Vydra

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Nemanja Matic, Ramires | Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian | Samuel Eto'o

Substitutes from: Mark Schwarzer, Ashley Cole, Mikel, Frank Lampard, Andre Schurrle, Mohamed Salah, Fernando Torres


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.
