Chelsea are champions! Michy Batshuayi's late second half goal seals it for the Blues.

Michy Batshuayi

Full-time: West Brom 0-1 Chelsea

There have been a couple of stoppages since the goal with fans jumping onto the pitch so there will be five minutes of time added on.

Michy does it! It's awfully messy I'm sure he won't mind. West Brom for once fail to clear the lines with Cahill up being a nuisance. He ends up slicing his effort but Azpilicueta reacts quickest to slide it back across goal where the forgotten summer signing is on the spot to bundle it home.

10 minutes to go at the Hawthorns. Can Chelsea find a goal, or will the champagne remain on ice for tonight?

As a West Brom corner veers out of play, Darren Fletcher is still running about with a note handed to him by his manager. Some reshuffling going on for the Baggies.

Here come the changes from Conte, Hazard and Pedro make way with Willian and Michy Batshuayi now on.

Chelsea's shooting has been appalling tonight; Azpilicueta is the latest to blaze a woeful effort over the bar.

West Brom nearly in again! Livermore is freed in acres of space down the inside left and waits for Chadli's run inside on the opposite flank. He picks out his former Spurs teammate who looks for the far corner, but drags his effort wide.

Nearly a breakthrough! For West Brom! Luiz gets himself caught in a right mess on the half way line and Rondon bursts past him, racing towards goal at pace. Azpilicueta manages to keep pace with him superbly however and puts just enough pressure on the Baggies striker to see him blaze over.

West Brom

The theme of this second-half? Eden Hazard getting fouled lots.

Tony Pulis is going to be forced into making his final change just after the hour mark, Gareth McAuley has picked up a knock and Marc Wilson comes onto replace him.

Costa gets the ball just inside the box and tries to turn and shoot, but he is denied by an excellent sliding challenge from Yacob.

And here's another change for West Brom, Nacer Chadli is onto replace McClean.

This match is now just a series of incidents where a West Brom player fouls Eden Hazard.

Fabregas does just that, but no one is on the end of it and the ball floats out of play.

Dawson is penalised for placing a hand on Hazard's back. Chelsea free kick which Fabregas will lift into the six yard area.

Nearly an own goal! Hazard torments West Brom, driving down the inside left and drilling a ball across goal where it bounces between Dawson and Evans. Between the two of them however they manage to clear their lines.

Here's the first change of the match; Claudio Yacob is on for Field.

Hazard lays a clever ball off for Fabregas who tries to ping into the top far corner from range. He doesn't quite get the connection right however and it veers well wide.

Foster denies Moses! The former Crystal Palace youngster pings a snapshot across goal, looking to catch Ben Foster out. The goalkeeper reacts well, however, getting down to palm it away for a corner.

FINALLY A GOAL. Everton have taken the lead at Goodison Park and it's Ross Barkley, the man given a final ultimatum over his future at the club this week, who has broken the deadlock.

And we are back underway for the second half.

Half-time: West Brom 0-0 Chelsea

Thankfully, there is just one minute of time added on at the end of this half.

Costa now scoops a woeful effort over the bar after a neat pass in from Hazard. There's no other way to put this; this has been rubbish so far.

Close from Pedro! The Spaniard cuts in from the right, working the ball onto his right foot before bending one wickedly towards the far corner. Foster is rooted in goal and watches on in relief as the shot veers just wide of his far post.

Half-time: Everton 0-0 Watford

Nothing to see here.

James McClean might find himself in trouble unless he calms down a bit. A few minutes after taking Moses down in an identical challenge to the one that got him booked, he is again called over for a talking to by Michael Oliver.

Hazard plays a one-two with Costa on the edge of the D but has his ankle nicked by a sliding challenge from Nyon on the return. No free kick, but West Brom punt the ball out of play with Belgian hobbling around as a result of that challenge.

It's still goalless at Goodison Park by the way. Cracking evening so far.

Nearly 25 minutes gone and we are still all square here.

Diego Costa

Moses tries to drive into the box but his blocked off by McClean. Tony Pulis is raging, but the free kick is given and the Ireland international is shown a booking. The free kick comes in, but Cahill's effort is deflected wide.

West Brom are spending most of the game pinned in their own half, but they do look dangerous on the counter. Again, McClean drives forward, this time cutting inside Moses who loses his footing. He finds Nyom coming up on the other flank but he delays his cross, allowing Chelsea to get back and stomp out the attack again.

Chelsea try something clever from a free kick with Fabregas sliding a perfectly weighted pass into Pedro on the edge of the box. He tries to caress it into the bottom corner but a deflection takes it out for a corner.

Suddenly, Wet Brom surge forward on the attack after Chelsea give the ball away on the edge of the box. James McClean races forward and for a moment it is two on one, with Rondon breaking to his left. Can he get his pass right to free the Venezuelan? Nope. It;s a yard or two behind him and Chelsea can regroup.

Pedro draws his marker in and brilliantly jinks past him, creeping up the byline before pinging a cross come in. It's blocked by Brunt; by his arm perhaps? It looked that way, but nothing is given.

Chelsea pass, pass and pass some more in the final third, patiently waiting for an opening. Fabregas finds it, sliding a ball into Pedro who opts to hammer an effort on goal, but he can't keep it on target. Chelsea are already in firm control, here.

Hazard wins a free kick down the inside left channel which Fabregas swings into the box. He sends it deep, looking for the run of Cahill who has crept in around the back of everyone but there is just too much on the ball for him to keep it in play.

Fabregas floats a tantalising ball over the top with Pedro breaking through between the two Baggies centre halves. Ben Foster comes out of his goal but is caught in no-mans land as the ball drops to the former Barcelona forward, but he can't get a clean connection on the ball and the chance is gone.

Brunt swings in the resulting corner kick but it evades everyone and floats out to safety.

20 seconds in, Rondon pounces on a lofted ball from Fletcher and bounces a header from just inside the box towards Courtois' top corner. The Belgian reacts quickly to palm it over the cross bar.

And West Brom get us underway at the Hawthorns.

We are off and underway at Goodison Park where Everton are playing host to Watford. We'll have goal updates from that match coming your way throughout the evening.

Diego Costa

Diego Costa has 20 Premier League goals to his name this season, averaging one every 147 minutes. These final three games could be his Chelsea swansong.

Antonio Conte will be joining a fairly exclusive club if Chelsea are handed the Premier League trophy tonight. Only three other managers before him have won the title in their first seasons in English football. In that respect, he will be sat alongside Jose Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti and Manuel Pellegrini.

Tony Pulis has made just one change to the side that drew 2-2 with Burnley; Allan Nyom comes back into the backline in place of Marc Wilson. Jonny Evans has shaken off an ankle injury and keeps his place at centre-half.

Antonio Conte has named the same starting XI that eased past Middlesbrough on Monday night. N'Golo Kante misses out again with a muscular problem so Cesc Fabregas holds onto his spot in the middle of the park. Apart from the former Leicester City star, it's the first choice XI that drove Chelsea to the summit of the Premier League.

N'Golo Kante is on the bench tonight but Chelsea have confirmed the midfielder is carrying a slight knock and will not be risked.

West Brom team to face Chelsea: Foster; Dawson, McAuley, Evans, Nyom; Brunt, Livermore, Fletcher (c), Field, McClean; Rondon.

Subs: Myhill, M Wilson, Yacob, Morrison, Chadli, Leko, Robson-Kanu

BREAKING: Jonny Evans passed fit to start, 18-year-old Sam Field also starts in midfield.

Chelsea team to face West Brom: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill (c); Moses, Matic, Fabregas, Alonso; Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard

Subs: Begovic, Zouma, Terry, Ake, Kante, Willian, Batshuayi

BREAKING: N'Golo Kante left out of the Chelsea starting XI with Cesc Fabregas partnering Nemanja Matic in midfield.

Interestingly, there is a start for Ross Barkley at Goodison Park tonight. He has been given until the end of next weekend to sign a new contract with the club - or move on. Ronald Koeman isn't messing around.

The clash at the Hawthorns isn't the only match tonight. Everton, coasting to a seventh place finish in their first season under Ronald Koeman, play host to Watford, who have already retained their Premier League status for another season. Here is the team news at Goodison Park tonight.

The champions-elect have arrived at the Hawthorns.

David Luiz

Tony Pulis on West Brom's injury concerns heading into tonight's match.

"Matty Phillips won't be fit. Hal [Robson-Kanu] will have a fitness test today, but if fit he'll only be fit for the bench. Jonny [Evans] should be fit. We'll wheel him out whatever happens."

Team news: West Brom

Tony Pulis could be without Jonny Evans and Hal Robson-Kanu tonight, with Matty Phillips a confirmed absentee. Phillips has not played for the Baggies since suffering a recurrence of a hamstring problem during his side's defeat by Liverpool in April. Evans meanwhile is struggling with an ankle problem, while Robson-Kanu will undergo a late fitness test.

So what happens if Chelsea don't win tonight? They can still end the weekend as champions if Tottenham slip up against Manchester United on Sunday – their last ever game at White Hart Lane.

Team news: Chelsea

In fact, Antonio Conte doesn't have a single injury concern to contend with tonight, having proudly told a press conference on Thursday: "All my players are available for the game."

Team news: Chelsea

N'Golo Kante is likely to still be feeling as fresh as the first day of the season and is expected to return to Antonio Conte's starting XI tonight. The PFA Player of the Year missed the easy 3-0 win over Middlesbrough last Monday due to a thigh problem but has recovered in time for tonight.

Here we are, then. Just over a year on from limping over the Premier League finishing line in 10th place, Chelsea are on the verge of completing one hell of a comeback. A season defined by dominance is drawing to a close and Antonio Conte's side can seal their prize with two games to spare in the Midlands tonight. The Premier League title is coming; it's now just a matter of whether it is tonight or next week.

Their final away game of the season provides one last test, however, and Tony Pulis will be determined to ensure the champagne remains on ice. West Brom, comfortably perched in eighth place, will strive to ensure tonight is competitive. But there is a strong feeling in west London that a party is coming tonight.

Stick around, we will have all your team news coming up shortly.
