What channel is Chelsea v West Brom Premier League match on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news
Chelsea welcome relegation-threatened West Brom to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Chelsea will look to extend their unbeaten start under the reign of Thomas Tuchel when lowly West Brom rock up in the capital on Saturday.
The Blues got into their groove before the international break and have kept seven clean sheets on the bounce, during which they have won five of those outings.
Tuchel has just nine Premier League fixtures to secure Chelsea a top-four finish to the season and catapult them into the Champions League next term.
West Brom, however, earned a 3-3 draw with Chelsea back in September and will hope to somehow claim a draw from this game, having averaged a point a match over their last six outings.
But with Tuchel’s defensive machine running at full capacity right now, it’s hard to see anything other than three points remaining in west London.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles should remain in the midfield, while Hal Robson-Kanu could be in for a start after being sent home from the Wales squad.

Our prediction: Chelsea v West Brom
Chelsea should realistically have no problem swatting away West Brom here, especially considering their defensive stability right now.
The potential return of Jorginho and Kante only further improves the solidity within this Blues spine – and West Brom may struggle to play out on the rare occasions they are in possession.
The Baggies’ only real hope is to try and hit Chelsea on the counter and make good use of their set-pieces. But even then, the hosts should run away victors.
