When these teams met in May at The Hawthorns, Chelsea had already been crowned champions of the Barclays Premier League.

Albion were able to inflict only a third league defeat of the season on the Blues in an eventful game, winning 3-0, with Saido Berahino opening the scoring, before Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas was sent off for kicking the ball at Chris Brunt.

Berahino added a second from the spot after John Terry brought him down within seconds of the restart. And Brunt rounded off the win with an angled shot from a quick corner.

The win extended Albion's run of home games without defeat against Chelsea to four, with the Blues last winning at The Hawthorns in April 2011.

Chelsea have started badly with just a point from their opening two games. In last weekend's 3-0 defeat at Manchester City, Terry was substituted in a Premier League game for the first time since May 2013 and for the first time under JosÈ Mourinho.

It is the first time Chelsea have failed to win their first two Premier League games since 1998-99, when they took four games to record a first win.

Albion are still without England goalkeeper Ben Foster, with a serious knee operation, while Serge Gnabry, signed on loan from Arsenal, may be considered for inclusion.
