Injury update: Antonio Conte sweating on fitness of these Chelsea stars ahead of West Brom clash

ANTONIO CONTE is waiting on late fitness tests ahead of Chelsea’s clash with West Brom this weekend.

The Blues come into the Baggies game on the back of a crucial victory against Manchester City last Saturday.

However, Conte needs to assess a few of his star men’s availability, according to Goal.

Nemanja Matic picked up a minor muscular injury that sidelined him for the City clash last weekend and he remains a doubt.

While star man Diego Costa and Pedro face fitness tests after being forced off at the Etihad.

Costa came off with a muscle problem while Pedro reportedly had an ankle injury.

Cesc Fabregas replaced Matic last weekend and he is reportedly set to keep his place in Conte’s midfield.

Willian could replace Pedro and Michy Batshuayi could come in for Costa should the West Brom game come too early for Chelsea’s stars.


  1. I think the team is capable of coping without those players in doubts….Willian,Fabregas and Batman should be able to fill the shoes although Costa will be the one missed most.
