West Brom vs Chelsea confirmed starting lineups

West Bromwich Albion will be looking to secure their first Premier League win of the season as they welcome Chelsea to The Hawthorns.

West Brom are going into this fixture at the back of massive 5-2 defeat at the hands of Everton and Slaven Bilic will be looking to recover from the loss despite it being a difficult game.

Chelsea, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend while they managed to beat Barnsley 6-0 in the Carabao Cup third round of Saturday with new boy Kai Havertz scoring himself a hattrick.

Frank Lampard confirmed that the latest addition Edouard Mendy will not be making his debut for the club as yet.

Thiago Silva will captain the Blues in this fixture while debutant Conor Townsend will replace suspended Kieran Gibbs for West Brom.
