Chelsea - West Brom: Preview and Lineups Prediction

Chelsea host West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon looking to stretch their unbeaten run to six matches.

The Blues, who are 14th in the Premier League ahead of Wednesday's fixtures, could leapfrog the visitors into 12th position with a second league victory under Guus Hiddink. His men appear to be clicking under his new regime, but they're unlikely to cruise to three points against an organised Tony Pulis side.

West Brom drew with Bristol City in the FA Cup on Saturday, ending a two-match winning streak in all competitions. However, as evident in their 2-1 over Arsenal at The Hawthorns in late November, the Baggies can certainly ruffle some feathers when it matters most.

Tony Pulis has just two injury concerns as he prepares his side for the trip to Stamford Bridge: centre-back Jonas Olsson and striker Victor Anichebe are in doubt, both due to hamstring problems.

Score Prediction

I definitely wouldn't describe it as confident nor comfortable, but this is the best I've felt as a supporter of Chelsea Football Club all season. Aside from Real Madrid's supposed interest in signing Eden Hazard, everything thing is calm at Stamford Bridge.

Hiddink appears to have got a grip on the dressing room and inspired some more determined performances from certain players by picking his starting XI based on form alone. Diego Costa is at last playing more like a centre forward than a street fighter; Kurt Zouma has proved his worth in the centre of defence; while Willian continues to maintain his excellent form.

While he hasn't set the world on fire, Guus has steered a frighteningly out of control vessel back on course, and that's all that can be asked of an interim manager with four matches under his belt.

I'll go for a 2-1 victory. What are your score predictions?
