Chelsea host West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League this weekend as Jose Mourinho's side look to maintain their unbeaten start to the 2014/15 campaign.

As long as the Blues avoid defeat against the Baggies on Saturday, they'll set a new club record of 12 consecutive games without loss from the start of a season, and will reinforce their reputation as the overwhelming title favourites following the international break.

Alan Irvine's team could prove to be a tough nut to crack, though, particularly if last season's clash in west London is anything to go by.

West Brom came within seconds of recording a first away win against Chelsea in exactly 30 years, before Andre Marriner awarded the home side a stoppage time penalty following Steven Reid's foul on Ramires.

Up stepped Eden Hazard to salvage a draw for Mourinho's men, and the Belgium international could have a decisive role to play again when the two teams meet tomorrow.

Ahead of the crunch encounter, GiveMeSport has picked out three key battles which could determine where the match is won or lost.
