Chelsea start Sunday’s Premier League action with a home clash with West Bromwich Albion, safe in the knowledge that they can move back to the top of the Premier League table with victory.
Antonio Conte’s men are looking to make it an incredible nine consecutive wins in the Premier League after an excellent victory away to Manchester City last weekend.

As expected, the Blues coach has stuck largely with the team that were triumphant at the Etihad Stadium.
The major decision for Conte was whether to continue with Cesc Fabregas in his central midfield or to restore the available again Nemanja Matic.
The former Juventus trainer has opted to drop the Spaniard, despite his excellent showing against City, and play the Serb instead.
Chelsea will continue with the 3-4-2-1 formation that has served the side so well in recent weeks and months, with West Brom overarching underdogs to get anything from the game.
Ahead of the action starting, here is the confirmed Blues starting XI to face the Baggies at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.
