Preview: Chelsea vs. West Bromwich Albion

Sports Mole previews Saturday's Premier League meeting between Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion.

Chelsea will be looking to keep up the pressure on Premier League leaders Arsenal when they face West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues, who currently sit second in the table on goal difference, are five points adrift of their London rivals.

Jose Mourinho's side bounced back from their 2-0 defeat at Newcastle United by beating Schalke 04 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

West Brom have moved up to 13th place after losing just one of their last six matches. The Baggies secured their third win in that run by seeing off Crystal Palace last weekend.

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is expected to miss out after suffering a leg injury, while Eden Hazard will return to the side after missing the match against Schalke.

For West Brom, Boaz Myhill will start in goal, despite struggling with a calf injury. Strikers Victor Anichebe and Nicolas Anelka could also feature after recovering from injuries.
