West Brom return to action on Saturday with their Premier League future looking increasingly bleak.

With nine matches remaining this season, Sam Allardyce's men are 10 points from safety having recorded just three league wins all season and just one goal in their last five matches.

The final run-in gets off to a daunting start, with a trip to a Chelsea.

The West London side have been in fine form since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as manager, and are currently in the top four, which would guarantee Champions League football next term.

Back in September the Baggies, then under Slaven Bilic's leadership, raced into a 3-0 lead inside the half an hour.

However, a second half comeback from the Blues led to them leaving the Black Country with a point.

What time is Chelsea vs West Brom?

The Baggies' trip to Stamford Bridge is the first of four Premier League games being played on Saturday, and will kick off at 12.30pm.

West Brom team news

Conor Gallagher will not be able to feature for the Baggies, having joined the club on-loan from Chelsea this summer, so is ineligible to face his parent club.

Otherwise, Sam Allardyce has a full strength squad to choose from.

Chelsea have been boosted by the returns of Tammy Abraham and Thiago Silva. N'Golo Kante will not feature however, having sustained a hamstring injury during the international break.

Edouard Mendy is also fit, alongside Callum Hudson-Odoi and Jorginho.

West Brom's next fixture

It's another nine days until West Brom's next Premier League game when they welcome Southampton to The Hawthorns at 6pm on Monday April 12.
