The Blues have yet to taste defeat under Tuchel's tutelage and are unbeaten in 14 matches across all competitions following a 2-0 win over Sheffield United before the international break.

Despite seeing off the Blades, Tuchel feels his side weren't at their best in that match after knocking Atletico Madrid out of the Uefa Champions League a few days prior.

“I think in combination with the Champions League game, I can understand it was a bit of a struggle as it was a big mental effort to overcome Atletico. I could feel the relief after the game and it was not so easy to restart the engine today," Tuchel said following his team's win over Sheffield United.

“We had a lot of changes, which is my responsibility to give the boys a possibility to show up in a difficult game because they deserve and it’s never easy if you lack rhythm and have never played in this formation maybe.

“It was 14 tough matches and I feel we are a bit tired and the result was the best result we could get.”
West Brom are winless in three matches after a 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace and will need nothing short of a miracle if they are to climb out of the relegation zone before season's end.

Chelsea came from three goals down to hold the Baggies to a 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture at the Hawthorns earlier this season. Tammy Abraham completed the comeback in the 90th minute after West Brom had raced into a 3-0 lead before the half-hour mark.
