That really is the final score from Stamford Bridge.

Incredible.

GOAL! Chelsea 2-4 West Brom (Mount 70)

Crikey! Chelsea give themselves a glimmer of hope. Marcos Alonso crossed from the left and the ball fell to Tim Werner about six yards out. He took a touch and instead of shooting with a defender in front of him, unselfishly laid the ball off to Mount, who tapped into a more or less empty net.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-4 West Brom (Diagne 67)

West Brom increase their lead again! From the corner, a lightning fast break on the counter results in Diagne finishing a splendid passing move with a neat finish. West Brom look home and hosed now.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-3 West Brom (Robinson 63)

West Brom extend their lead! Callum Robinson volleys home a Darnell Furlong cross from the right into the top corner from just inside the Chelsea penalty area. That is a beauty!

Half-Time: Chelsea 1-2 West brom

RED CARD! Thiago Silva, Chelsea

29 mins: Huge drama at Stamford Bridge now!

Shortly after taking the lead, Chelsea are reduced to 10 men after Okay Yokuslu drives wide and he is caught by a reckless challenge by Thiago.

Referee David Coote shows the Brazilian a second yellow card.

A nightmare return from injury.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 West Brom | Christian Pulisic 28′

28 mins: Pulisic is on hand to turn home the rebound after Alonso’s excellent curling, long-range free-kick smashes against the post!

James Robson at Stamford Bridge

It’s been frustrating for Chelsea so far. There have been a few promising openings, but so often the final ball has killed the threat.

Jorginho’s passing has been strangely wayward and Ziyech has got his feet wrong on a couple of occasions.

20 mins: Chelsea are turning the screw again as Ziyech misplaces a through ball on the counter-attack and a crucial intervention from Furlong then stops Alonso from making contact with an enticing Ziyech cross at the back post.

18 mins: Werner gets a whack to the lower leg from Furlong while he tries to deliver a cross from the byline.

He’s down for a few moments but now gingerly gets to his feet.

Before match

Premier League football returns today following the latest international break, with Stamford Bridge the first port of call on another busy weekend of action.

Chelsea will be considered strong favourites to extend their formidable unbeaten run under Thomas Tuchel and win to give themselves a four-point cushion in fourth spot before rivals West Ham head to Wolves on Monday night.
