It's 40 years since Albion last won at Stamford Bridge in the league, and after an encouraging opening 10 minutes this crop never looked like breaking that run.

Chelsea are also struggling, although the London club's problem lies in whether or not they can finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.

"You have explosive players who are all about speed, so if the muscles are tight and cold then it's easy for them to snap, so to speak".

25 GOAL CHELSEA - Hazard sweeps home a brilliant one-two between him and Giroud.

Chelsea struck first soon after, though, when Hazard played a neat one-two with Giroud before sweeping the ball into the bottom corner. The images haven't gone down well at all with Chelsea fans, who want to see more commitment from the player and can not understand what he is doing dancing when he's supposed to be recovering from a delicate back injury.

Lining out for West Brom, where is now on loan, against Chelsea on Monday Night Football, there were only three minutes gone when the Liverpool-owned man had to leave proceedings.

Antonio Conte says he's "a bit of a disaster" at convincing clubs to sign players but "very good" at improving the ones he has.

Conte had previously suggested that Morata would sit out the visit of West Brom, but the Spaniard was introduced in the second-half and played a part in Eden Hazard's second goal.

"To get three points, show the will to fight and keep another clean sheet was important and we must continue in this way".

The Premier League champions failed to make any big signings in the January transfer window. They were six hard months for me but what is important is right now and I feel good.

Asking players for their shirts is something that's been commonplace in football for some time, but recently, we've seen a surge in fans bringing signs to stadiums outlining their requests for post-game memorabilia.

"We must be pleased because on the same night we found Morata who played very well in the last 30 minutes, with great personality and spirit".

"If we can get two or three wins in our next group of games we can put pressure on the other teams".
