Where to Watch

Kick-off is at 3pm GMT. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:20pm GMT.


Chelsea are unbeaten in the league so far and Jose Mourinho would be hoping his side could extend their record when the Blues host West Brom on Saturday. The west London club are leading the table this season and have dropped only four points from 11 games.

The hosts have never dropped a point at Stamford Bridge in the league this campaign and another win could just see them maintain their lead at the top of the table. In the last fixture, Chelsea came from behind to register a 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield.

Defender Gary Cahill and striker Diego Costa were on the scoresheet. The former Atletico Madrid striker and his compatriot Cesc Fabregas were not a part of the Spain national team. However, the duo are likely to start for the Premier League leaders on Saturday.

Meanwhile, West Brom come into this game after their last match ended in a 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United at home. Alan Irvine has seen his side already register a victory over Chelsea's London rivals Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

The visitors would be looking to end Chelsea's unbeaten record in all competitions when West Brom face the Blues at Stamford Bridge. Saido Berahino and Stephane Sessegnon will be the key players for West Brom and their manager would rely heavily on these two players on Saturday.

What Managers Say

Alan Irvine: "It's not been mentioned by any of the players. One or two members of staff have kind of mentioned it and things, but more as a story than anything else. Things happen and things are said in the heat of the moment. We aren't a Mickey Mouse club. We are a club that are run extremely well, we are a club that have fantastic support. You can't be a Premier League club and be a Mickey Mouse club."
