Chelsea visits West Brom in the third game week of the Premier League. The defending champions will look forward to picking up their much elusive first win of the title defending campaign.

Chelsea drew the first game against Swansea City at home and lost 3-0 against Manchester City last week. Jose Mourinho’ side has been extremely average so far in this season and will definitely try to improve their game. 

West Bromwich too has only a point from the first two matches. A draw in today’s game would perfectly suit them.

Chelsea’s newest signing Pedro makes his debut today. Kurt Zouma replaces Gary Cahill in the starting XI.

West Brom Starting XI: Myhill, Dawson, McAuley, Olsson, Brunt, McManaman, Morrison, Fletcher (c), Yacob, McClean, Rondon.

West Brom Subs: Rose, Chester, Lescott, Gardner, Gnabry, Anichebe, Lambert.

Chelsea Starting XI: Courtois; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Pedro, Willian, Hazard; Diego Costa.

Chelsea Subs: Begovic, Cahill, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Traore, Remy, Falcao.
