Chelsea will be without suspended midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko for Monday's Premier League meeting with West Brom.
The France international serves a one-game ban following his dismissal at Watford.
Striker Olivier Giroud could make his first start since moving from Arsenal, but centre-back Andreas Christensen (hamstring) faces a late fitness test and forward Alvaro Morata (back) remains sidelined.
Jay Rodriguez is available for selection for West Brom's trip to Chelsea on Monday despite being charged by the Football Association following his clash with Gaetan Bong.
The striker will still be picked by boss Alan Pardew despite being charged with alleged racial abuse of the Brighton defender, something the England international denies.
Jonny Evans (back), Kieran Gibbs (hamstring), Grzegorz Krychowiak (leg) are available but Jake Livermore (hamstring) James Morrison (Achilles) and Nacer Chadli (hip) are out.
Chelsea (from): Courtois, Caballero, Eduardo, Rudiger, Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Alonso, Zappacosta, Sterling, Palmieri, Ampadu, Fabregas, Drinkwater, Kante, Barkley, Hudson-Odoi, Moses, Willian, Pedro, Hazard, Giroud.

- Chelsea have won all three Premier League meetings against West Brom under Antonio Conte without conceding a single goal.
- West Brom haven’t beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in any of their last 16 visits in all competitions (D3 L13), since winning 1-0 in the League Cup in November 1983 under Ron Wylie.
- Chelsea’s last 24 Premier League goals in this fixture have been scored from inside the area, since a Didier Drogba strike in August 2010.
- The Blues lost to Crystal Palace in October with the Eagles sitting at the bottom of the Premier League table. The last season in which Chelsea lost to two different teams starting the day in last place was in 1992-93 (vs Nottingham Forest and Oldham Athletic).
- Chelsea haven’t lost back-to-back Premier League home games since November 2011, when they lost to Arsenal and Liverpool.
- The Blues have lost consecutive league games by a margin of three or more goals for the first time since October 1995 (1-4 vs Man Utd, 0-3 vs Blackburn) - they’ve never previously lost three in a row by such a margin in the top-flight.
- West Brom have lost more points from leading positions than any other Premier League side this season (18).
- The Baggies have won just two of their last 18 Premier League trips to London (D6 L10), with both of those victories coming against Crystal Palace.
- Alan Pardew has won away at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League with two different clubs (Newcastle United and Crystal Palace) – no manager has ever won there with three. In the top-flight, the last manager to win away at Chelsea with three different clubs was Ron Atkinson (West Brom, Man Utd and Aston Villa).
- Antonio Conte hasn’t lost three consecutive league games as manager since November 2009, when he was with Atalanta in Serie A.
