Picking the Best Potential Chelsea Lineup to Face West Brom on Monday Night

?Champions Chelsea host West Brom looking for a vital three points in the race for the top four, having gotten off to a bad start in the New Year.

With Spurs’ win over Arsenal on Saturday, the battle for Champions League spots is more hotly contested than ever before, and the Blues must up their game to be in with a shout.

Here’s who Antonio Conte could pick on Monday night:


  • Courtois


?Thibaut Courtois has recovered from a spate of injuries during January and will be available.


  • Azpilicueta


  • Christensen


  • Rüdiger


?Barring a late fitness test, Andreas Christensen should return from a hamstring problem to anchor the Chelsea defence, having supplanted David Luiz in recent months.

Regulars Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger will continue alongside him to complete the back three, looking to put in an improved showing after shipping seven times in their past two games.


  • Moses


  • Kanté


  • Drinkwater


  • Alonso


?With Tiemoue Bakayoko suspended, Antonio Conte may turn to the Leicester title-winning partnership to get a result, with N’Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater having a rapport few can match in the Chelsea squad.

Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso should start as normal, with new boy Emerson Palmieri not quite ready for a start on the left flank.


  • Willian


  • Giroud


  • Hazard


?Alvaro Morata’s back problem means Olivier Giroud could be given a full debut against the Midlands side, with the former Arsenal man making a late sub appearance at Watford.

Eden Hazard, whose brilliant individual goal seemingly earned an equaliser last week, will be looking to prove a point and have a good performance. Willian should continue on the right flank.
