Attacking midfielder Andre Schurrle withdrew from the German squad to face Gibraltar and Spain during the break but he is likely to be back in the squad this weekend having recovered from illness. Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa also pulled out of the International duty due to hamstring issues and it remains to be seen if the pair will be fit to take their places. Of the two former Arsenal midfielder Cesc is the biggest doubt.

While the Blues have been a model of consistency, WBA have been anything but. The Midlanders will head into this weekend with two defeats, one win and two draws from their last 5 games, results that leave the club 13th in the table, four points clear of the danger zone.

West Brom meanwhile hope to have Sébastien Pocognoli available again after he went off against Newcastle with a hamstring tear. The defender subsequently pulled out of the Belgian squad but his manager Alan Irvine is confident that will be fit for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

“There’s a little tear there but nothing that we’re concerned about and nothing that should keep him out for any length of time,” Irvine told the Birmingham Mail.

“Speaking to the medical people, they think he’s got a genuine chance for the Chelsea game.

“The discussion has been had with the Belgian federation and they were happy for us to get him scanned here and send over the scan report and they’re perfectly happy for him to stay here.

Young forward Saido Berahino will be out to prove a point after he was overlooked by England for the games against Slovenia and Scotland. The top scoring Englishman in the premier league received his first call up but failed to make an appearance over the two games and will have to wait for a first cap.
