Premier League: Chelsea aiming to put troubles to one side against West Brom

Rafa Benitez will be the centre of attention once again on Saturday when Chelsea welcome West Bromwich Albion to Stamford Bridge.

Following his midweek outburst, in which he criticised those Blues supporters who continue to make his interim post almost impossible, Benitez can expect another frosty reception when the Blues return to home soil.Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live|Watch Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live streaming online.

While certain sections of the Chelsea fan base have been against their Spanish coach from the off, performances on the field have done little to endear him to the sceptics.

A run of two wins in six, which has included two defeats in their last three, has left the Blues sweating on a top-four finish and a place in next season's UEFA Champions League.Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live|Watch Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live streaming online.

They desperately need to find a spark against West Brom, but the Baggies will arrive in the capital determined to pile pressure on Benitez and aid their own quest to secure European qualification.Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live|Watch Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live streaming online.

Steve Clarke - a man who knows all about the pressures of life at Chelsea from his days there as a player and coach - has his side sat seventh at present.

Back-to-back victories in the Premier League suggest they should be full of confidence, but they have won just four times on their travels this season and have suffered defeat in each of their last eight visits to Stamford Bridge - conceding 22 times in the process.Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live|Watch Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live streaming online.

Benitez is likely to make sweeping changes to the starting XI he sent out for a midweek FA Cup fifth round victory over Middlesbrough.

Paulo Ferreira, Ryan Bertrand, Nathan Ake, Victor Moses and Yossi Benayoun are likely to be among those to make way, with Ashley Cole, David Luiz, Frank Lampard, Eden Hazard and Demba Ba pushing for recalls.

Defensive duo Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta sat out cup duty through illness and injury respectively and a decision is yet to be taken on their involvement against the Baggies.

Oriol Romeu remains the Blues' only long-term absentee, as he continues to nurse knee ligament damage.

West Brom could be without their two frontline strikers on Saturday.Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live|Watch Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live streaming online.

On-loan Romelu Lukaku is ineligible to face his parent club, while forward partner Shane Long is a doubt with the ankle injury suffered against Sunderland and has been unable to train so far this week.

Left-back Goran Popov will complete a three game ban for his red card against Tottenham.

Clarke has included 16-year-old midfielder Isaiah Brown, who is still at school, in his squad.Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live|Watch Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion live streaming online.
