Thibaut Courtois had started in Chelsea Goal as expected. Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill and Andreas Christensen were in the defense for Chelsea. Davide Zappacosta and Marcos Alonso were playing at both the flanks for them. Tiemoue Bakayoko, N’Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas were playing in the central midfield for Chelsea while Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard were leading them from the upfront.

 

Tony Pulis had fielded his side with a 3-5-2 formation. Ben Foster was in the West Brom Goal while Gareth Mcauley, Jonny Evans and Ahmed Hegazi were in the defense for West Brom.
