Is Chelsea vs West Brom on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture

West Brom travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday hoping to pull off a shock result and kick-start an unlikely battle for survival.

The Baggies are ten points adrift in the bottom three and face the ominous prospect of getting a result again Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, who are yet to lose since the German’s appointment in January.

An impressive defensive record means the Blues should have few concerns facing a side that have managed to score just 20 times in the Premier League this season.

The expectation will be another three points for Tuchel’s team, but they will be conscious of the potential for an unexpected slip-up.
