Chelsea vs West Brom live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV today

Chelsea host West Brom on Saturday looking to continue their impressive form under new manager Thomas Tuchel.

The Blues are yet to lose a game since the German’s appointment in late January following the dismissal of Frank Lampard.

It’s a daunting prospect for West Brom, who are cut adrift in the Premier League’s bottom three after their 1-0 defeat against Crystal Palace before the international break.

Chelsea are strong favourites, then, but they will be wary of avoiding a slip-up in what is becoming a closely-fought race to finish in the top four.

West Brom will be without midfielder Conor Gallagher, ineligible to play against his parent club. Kieran Gibbs is also a doubt having been absent through injury since January.
