Chelsea fans urge Antonio Conte to continue without 2 players following West Brom win



Supporters of Chelsea have this evening pleaded with manager Antonio Conte to move forward over the coming weeks with a pair of players omitted from the club’s starting lineup.
Matchup
The two sides went head to head at Stamford Bridge, with Antonio Conte?s men desperate for all 3 points following a dismal run of form which saw the Blues fall to consecutive 3-goal defeats at the hands of Bournemouth and Watford.
West Brom, meanwhile, had fallen to defeats in their last 2 Premier League outings, the latter of which came in hugely disappointing fashion at home to fellow strugglers Southampton.
Ahead of tonight, the Baggies sat rock bottom of the English top-flight table, a full 5 points behind 19th-placed Stoke City.
Teams
The lineups for tonight?s crucial matchup were announced an hour prior to kick-off, with a number of notable inclusions and absences for hosts Chelsea. Andreas Christensen returned to the heart of the Blues? defence following a spell on the sidelines, while Olivier Giroud earned his first start for the Premier League champions up front.
Cesc Fabregas was also included from the start, stepping in for the suspended Tiemoue Bakayoko, while Alvaro Morata was fit enough for a place on the Chelsea bench.
However, Marcos Alonso was a notable absentee, with the Spaniard having been a surprise late scratch from the Blues? squad for their clash with Watford last week as a ?precautionary measure?.

Team to face WBA: Courtois; Azpilicueta (c), Christensen, Rudige...
