After successfully bagging all three points on their latest Champions League fixture, Chelsea are set to continue that fine performance this weekend when they play host to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, November 9 at Stamford Bridge. Suffering a shock league defeat on their previous Premier League encounter against Newcastle United last weekend, Jose Mourinho will be pushing his players in grabbing maximum result as they don't want to lose pace at the top of current standings.
West Bromwich themselves are not keen on giving things up easily as they have been showcasing ability in troubling any big teams in the league so far this season. Still sitting at mid-table position, Steve Clarke's men will be hoping their positive trend against top sides can continue again this weekend, though it won't be an easy task indeed with Chelsea gunning hard for a home win.
The Blues eventually got a bit of luck in coming away with a point from that encounter as they needed a late controversial spot kick from Eden Hazard to draw level against West Brom. Chelsea actually took the lead first through Samuel Eto'o sneaky effort on 45 minutes. However, goals from Shane Long and Stephane Sessegnon midway into the second period turned things around before Hazard rescued a point for the home side.
