West Brom vs Chelsea
Competition: English Premier League
Match date: 23 August 2015
Kick Off Time: 13:30 BST
Venue: The Hawthorns, West Bromwich 

West Brom currently occupy the final relegation spot with just one point themselves - following three-goal loss to City and then a 0-0 draw with Watford. They are still looking for their first goal of the new season and have signed Salomon Rondon to improve their offensive production. It remains to be seen whether Berahino will remain at the club.
Salomon Rondon made his debut from the bench last time out and will be pushing for a start. Elsewhere in the midfield, Daren Fletcher, Claudio Yacob, James Morrison and Craig Gardner look likely starters, with James McLean and Connor McManaman alternative options. Serge Gnabry is still short of match fitness.
Chelsea team have collected just a single point from their opening two top-flight fixtures nd go into the game on the back of last weekend’s 3-0 defeat to Man City after a 2-2 home draw agains Swansea City in their league opening match. They cannot afford another lacklustre display on a weekend that could potentially see them fall eight points behind City in the title race.
The Blues are set to name their strongest possible starting XI and Mourinho could decide to give to new signings Baba Rahman and Pedro the first start with the Blues' shirt. Thibaut Courtois could return from suspension though Victor Moses and Oscar are out injured. Ramires could retain his role on the right, with Willian tucked on behind Diego Costa again.
West Brom inflicted a 3-0 defeat on Chelsea towards the end of last season. The Blueshave failed to win on each of their last three visits to this ground but they haven't failed to win any of their first three league matches of a season since the 1998/99 campaign.
