Chelsea return to the Hawthorns for the first time since clinching last year’s title here, and look to continue our current three-match Premier League winning streak. Thanks to results elsewhere (Arsenal beating Spurs), Chelsea could rise to at least third (and second, temporarily) with a win.
Here we go.

As preferred by the voting fans, Conte keeps the 3-5-2 from the previous game, including Andreas Christensen at center-center back. David Luiz does return to the bench, alongside Ethan Ampadu. Batshuayi’s injury does leave the bench a bit short on attacking options.
COME ON, CHELSEA!
