Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Chelsea could line up in Saturday's Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion.

Chelsea will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they welcome West Bromwich Albion to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues have won their last two matches in the Champions League and FA Cup respectively but were held to a goalless draw by Leeds United in their last league game on March 13.

Chelsea will be without N'Golo Kante on Saturday, with the midfielder picking up a hamstring problem while representing France during the recent international break, but Callum Hudson-Odoi has been passed fit after a shoulder issue.

Jorginho had also emerged as a doubt after picking up a knee injury in training with Italy, but the midfielder is likely to be fit, while goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is available, having recovered from the dental surgery that he had last week.

Tammy Abraham and Thiago Silva have also returned to training over the international break, and the duo are both expected to be in the squad against the relegation strugglers.

Mason Mount could be rested ahead of the Champions League fixture with Porto, meaning that there might be a start for Christian Pulisic alongside Timo Werner and Kai Havertz in the final third of the field.

Reece James and Ben Chilwell could be given the nod in the wing-back positions, with Andreas Christensen potentially dropping to the bench to allow Silva to return to the starting XI.

Billy Gilmour could be in line for a rare start if Jorginho is unable to prove his fitness, while Olivier Giroud, Hakim Ziyech and Abraham will also be involved in some capacity.

Chelsea possible starting lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Pulisic, Werner, Havertz
