Chelsea will look to win back their place on top of the Premier League table when they host West Bromwich Albion on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have taken advantage of continuity since moving to a 3-4-2-1 formation under Antonio Conte, with the starting XI largely the same week-to-week.

This will more than likely continue against West Brom, with Chelsea set to pick the majority of the team that has won eight consecutive Premier League games.

However, Conte has a real decision to make in central midfield, with Nemanja Matic back available after missing last weekend’s win over Manchester City.

This means that either the Serbian or Cesc Fabregas, who starred in the win at the Etihad Stadium, will most likely have to make do with a place on the bench.

Given that the former Barcelona playmaker put in such a stellar performance last week, it would be a shock to see Conte drop him to the bench.

As such, there is every chance that the same XI that beat City last weekend will be fielded against the Baggies on Sunday.

Predicted Chelsea line-up vs West Brom (3-4-2-1): Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Hazard, Pedro; Costa
