Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich)
Laying blood and sweat bare on the pitch, West Brom finally made their return to the English top-flight, thanks to a fine run of form in the Championship. With a whopping 83 points on the board, the Baggies just about pipped Brentford to promotion.

Now plying their trade in the Premier League, West Brom will feel very delighted to be playing in the top division once again. However, if they are to avoid an immediate return to the Championship, more will be expected of them over the coming weeks.

West Brom vs Chelsea Team News

Last season, West Brom’s promotion intent was already made clear right from the start. Appointing the experienced Slaven Bilic as head coach sent a strong statement to the rest of the league, showing the Baggies’ huge ambitions for the term.

Things panned out just as they wanted, finishing second on the standings to earn promotion to the Premier League. Perhaps, the club supporters would have fancied lifting the Championship trophy, adding it to their silverware cabinet.

However, as they couldn’t lay their hands on the highly-coveted trophy, promotion still bode well with everyone associated with the club. Slaven Bilic was also praised for his instant positive impact at the Hawthorns.

Returning to the Premier League this season, West Brom’s board must have outlined their proposed ambitions – most likely escaping relegation. With the quality of oppositions that they will be up against, this will be a herculean task for the Throstles.

With the campaign still in its preliminary stages, West Brom are already in a rut. They have fallen to defeat thrice in their last four games across all competitions. Also, they have suffered heavy defeats in their opening two PL fixtures.

Taking a trip to Goodison Park to take on Everton on the last matchday, Bilic’s men succumbed to a humiliating loss. Calvert-Lewin turned villain for the Baggies, registering a hattrick as the Toffees roared to a comfortable 5-2 win.

Surely, West Brom will be down at the moment, and will be struggling for motivation. With a date set-up with Chelsea this weekend, there couldn’t be a worse time to tackle the title-challengers. The Blues are a brilliant side and on a stupendous run of form.

Also, they have lavished funds in the transfer window to secure the signatures of a flurry of world-class players, including Werner, Havertz and Thiago Silva. Though Chelsea suffered a 2-0 loss in their last league game, they can be forgiven for the defeat given it came against reigning champions Liverpool.

With that loss still in mind, Lampard’s men will feel extra-motivated to go for the win here. West Brom are in danger of being victims of a backlash from this wounded Chelsea side.
