Everything you need to know ahead of Sunday's trip to Stamford Bridge
UNBEATEN in four, and seventh in the Premier League, Albion's season continues on Sunday as they head to the Capital to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge (ko 12pm).
Antonio Conte's team are flying. Top of the pile and on an eight-game winning run, Chelsea have put last season's underwhelming title defence firmly behind them. The crushing 3-1 defeat of Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last weekend was a real statement of intent to the rest of the Premier League and the former Italy boss will want his side to make it nine from nine against the Baggies on Sunday.
Last time out
At the Bridge last season, Craig Gardner and James McClean were on target as Albion claimed a hard-fought 2-2 draw against the defending champions.

Myhill is still sidelined for Albion with an ankle injury. But bar Boaz, the Baggies have a clean bill of health and no suspensions.
Diego Costa came off injured in the win at City, but Chelsea will be hoping he's raring to go for this weekend's clash. He's currently the leading scorer in the top-flight with 11 goals.
Gareth McAuley (37) is the oldest outfield player to feature in the Premier League this season. And the defender has played every minute for Albion in the league so far along with Craig Dawson and Ben Foster (1260).
In Chelsea's last eight games they have picked up a maximum of 24 points, scored 22 goals and conceded just twice.
From the archive
That draw from January 2016 is one of the Baggies' best displays at Chelsea in recent years. And who needs an excuse to have another look at that peach from Craig Gardner?
Head to head
Albion's record against Chelsea doesn't make happy reading. The Blues have won 58 of 135 encounters, with 35 games drawn.
The Baggies haven't won away at Stamford Bridge in the league since 1978, when Regis, Wile and Brown were all amongst the goals in a 3-1 triumph.
