Chelsea will look to put the disappointment of their least Premier League game - a 2-0 defeat against Newcastle - behind them when they welcome West Brom to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho read the riot act following that defeat at St James' Park and he certainly got a response in the form of a 3-0 Champions League win against Schalke on Tuesday.

The Special One has a few selection headaches ahead of Saturday's fixture, by is largely expected to roughly pick the same team which defeated Manchester City last month.

Fernando Torres misses the game with a thigh injury, so Samuel Eto'o will continue to occupy the lone striker's role.

With John Terry assured of his place at the heart of defence, Mourinho will have to decide whether to opt for Gary Cahill or David Luiz, who has come in for criticism for his performances of late. Eden Hazard is likely to brought back in from the cold after missing the Schalke game.

Chelsea welcome back two familiar faces to Stamford Bridge on Saturday; Mourinho's former assistant-turned West Brom boss Steve Clarke, and former striker Nicolas Anelka.

The Blues have a 100% record against the Baggies in the Premier League, and haven't lost a league game against them since 1979.

Predicted Chelsea team: Cech, Cole, Cahill, Terry, Ivanovic, Ramires, Lampard, Hazard, Oscar, Schürlle, Eto'o 

Predicted score: Chelsea 2-0 West Brom
