Antonio Conte
Antonio Conte has plenty to choose from in midfield at Chelsea - does he really need Everton's Ross Barkley?

Chelsea visit West Brom on Saturday afternoon as the international break finally comes to an end.

After the satisfaction of beating Manchester United just under a fortnight ago, the Blues are hoping to win their fourth successive league game.

Despite the impressive form of league leaders Manchester City, we’re still in the title race, trying to fend off teams like United and Tottenham.

West Brom are a point above the relegation zone in 16th place, coming off the back of three successive league defeats.

However, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has a selection dilemma ahead of the visit to The Hawthorns as several of his players picked up recent injuries.

As per PhysioRoom, both Michy Batshuayi and Victor Moses are both out with foot and hamstring injuries respectively. Meanwhile, David Luiz, Eden Hazard and Tiemoue Bakayoko are slight doubts for tomorrow’s match.

How will Chelsea line-up against West Brom?

David Luiz
David Luiz could well be sidelined once again for this upcoming match.

Despite these slight doubts, I wouldn’t be surprised if at least Hazard and Bakayoko are available for selection. The David Luiz situation is uncertain because he was left out of the squad in the 1-0 win against United.

Even though the 3-5-2 formation worked against Jose Mourinho’s team, Conte may want us to have more freedom against The Baggies. This means that the Italian may go back to the 3-4-3 system against a compact and defensive West Brom team.

Here’s how we predict Chelsea will line-up against West Brom:
