Chelsea's trip to West Brom sparks memories of Bolton in 2005

But Chelsea are expected to field a full-strength team, with N'Golo Kante in line to return after sitting out Monday's win over Middlesbrough.

Gary Cahill has insisted Chelsea are not getting complacent as they edge ever closer to the Premier League title.

The Italian said this after his side's comfortable 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge on Monday, which moved within touching distance of glory.

"It's great to breathe this atmosphere at Stamford Bridge and to hear your fans with this enthusiasm and passion", Conte said after the game.

"I'm pleased for him, because I saw this season he put himself in this team in every moment, if he played and if he didn't play".

West Brom boss Tony Pulis is determined to prolong Chelsea's wait to be crowned Premier League champions when the sides meet at The Hawthorns on Friday.

Fabregas became the first player in the history of the Premiership who had 10 or more assists in 6 different seasons.

Such was the number of opportunities Fabregas gifted to his teammates during the first half that injured Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi tweeted "Cesc is like Santa on a pitch".

For now, though, Conte will want to enjoy the winning the league for the fourth season in a row at club level.

When Chelsea's Premier League winners collect their medals and trophy on the last day of the season against Sunderland one man will be opening his post to find his medal a few days later.

The 28-year-old is Chelsea's top goalscorer with 21 goals in all competitions this season and he is in fine form as he has scored three goals in his last three league appearances. We will give it our best tomorrow.

Even if they slip up against the Baggies, Chelsea will still be overwhelming favourites given they need just three points from their final three league games this season to take the title.

Ben Gibson says that the confirmation of Middlesbrough's relegation from the Premier League is the "lowest point" of his life. "We must focus and prepare well and West Brom away won't be easy, but we are in a good moment and with concentration and a good attitude we will try to win".

"It's great to score three goals, to create many chances and also to keep another clean sheet".
