KICK OFF: The Blues get the game underway.
Five minutes until kick off!
West Brom have not tasted victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in any of their last 16 visits in all competitions since winning 1-0 in the League Cup in November 1983.
Baggies boss Alan Pardew says he has sympathy for last season's title winner: "I do feel sorry for the manager because the job he did last year was absolutely outstanding and I don't really think he's changed too much.
"Maybe the quality of the opposition has changed and maybe the players he's had available haven't been to the consistency he had when he won it.
"But you cannot fault his record and the job he's done since he came to the Premier League. Chelsea had great momentum last season and they played a system that everybody was trying to deal with."
The Blues have lost consecutive league games by a margin of three or more goals for the first time since October 1995 (1-4 vs Man Utd, 0-3 vs Blackburn) - they have never previously lost three in a row by such a margin in the top-flight.
After this game, the reigning Premier League champions face Hull City on Friday then Barcelona, Manchester Utd and Manchester City.
All eyes will be on Conte tonight following those humiliating losses to Bournemouth and Watford. Just 276 days since he led the Blues to the title with victory over the Baggies in May last season, he is now fighting for his job.
Conte has made some interesting statements in the past few days, including praising Luis Enrique who has been linked with the hotseat at Stamford Bridge.
WEST BROM XI: Foster, Dawson, Hegazi, Evans, Phillips, Barry, Brunt, Krychowiak, Gibbs, Sturridge, Rondon.
Three changes from the team that lost to Southampton with Gibbs, Evans and Krychowiak in.
Giroud makes his first start for the Blues while Morata is on the bench after recovering from a back injury and Cahill is dropped.
Hello and welcome to LIVE commentary as Chelsea host West Brom. Both sides need three points for very different reasons - the Blues have lost their last two games while the Baggies are rooted to the bottom of the table. Kick-off is at 20:00 GMT.
