Chelsea have had a miserable time in the Premier League of late, but they will aim to put that right this evening when they face West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues dropped out of the top four over the weekend due to victories for Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.
Antonio Conte’s side can move up from fifth to fourth if they nab all three points from this evening’s encounter.
Some fans may not be feeling too confident, despite the fact that the Baggies are at the bottom of the table having recorded just one win since the beginning of September.
The reason for nervousness is down to Chelsea’s last two league results, which ended in defeats to opponents that on paper, the team should have beaten.
Conte’s position as manager came under the microscope due to the Blues’ 3-0 loss to Bournemouth and 4-1 defeat to Watford.
Ahead of tonight’s contest, which kicks off at 8pm, Chelsea fans have been tweeting their expectations.
It’s conte’s last day

If Abramovich wants fast, expansive, attractive football then we need the following things: 1. A manager like Sarri/Tuchel 2. A new stadium with a faster/wider playing surface like the Emirates/Etihad 3. Attack-minded signings (Bailey/Isco) 4. A new contract for Eden Hazard!

The sight of Bournemouth fans chanting "we want 4!" at Stamford Bridge was disconcerting for me; may that not happen tonight!
