If ever Antonio Conte needed a win, it is definitely on Monday night. His Chelsea side welcome Premier League basement boys West Brom to Stamford Bridge and are heading into the clash off the back of a 7-1 aggregate defeat to Bournemouth and Watford. Conte’s mood and criticism of the board’s transfer policy, as well as results, mean his long-term future in West London looks bleak. Following the Watford game, he appeared to almost dare Roman Abramovich to sack him; while there are no plans to do so yet, a poor result in this one could change the situation.

There are 19 points separating the current champions and league leaders Manchester City as things stand. West Brom, though, could represent the best possible opponent at this point in the season; Alan Pardew appeared to have turned a corner with the Baggies, but they are beginning to get cut adrift.

Form

Chelsea only have two wins to their name in the last ten games, but both of those were rather emphatic and against struggling sides, Brighton and Newcastle, though the latter came in the FA Cup. They were torn apart by Watford on Monday, and West Brom will be keen to do the same. Both Conte’s mood and the atmosphere will be interesting to see if they go a goal behind.

Beating Brighton a few weeks ago looked like kickstarting both West Brom’s season and Pardew’s reign, but it remains their only Premier League win since August.

Team News

David Luiz made his first league start since October on Monday, but his involvement is doubtful. Alvaro Morata is also unlikely to feature due to a back problem. West Brom have no new concerns, but Daniel Sturridge could lead the line against his former club.
