  1. Stalemate at The Hawthorns

    West Brom 0-0 Chelsea

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer at The Hawthorns

    Pretty much as expected - Chelsea with most of the possession but West Brom well organised and fiercely determined.

    Chelsea are seeking the goal that could make them Premier League champions but Tony Pulis's side giving nothing away.

  2. Chelsea not making possession pay

    West Brom 0-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea have had some very slick approach work but have been let down by sloppiness in the final third - and their corners have been awful so far.

    Cue Chelsea goal from a corner...

  3. Chelsea fans taunt Spurs

    West Brom 0-0 Chelsea

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer at The Hawthorns

    "Tottenham Hotspur - It's Happened Again" is the chant from thousands of Chelsea fans behind Thibaut Courtois' goal - a painful reminder of another Premier League title challenge that came to nothing.

    Nothing to be ashamed of in Tottenham's season, though.

  4. Chelsea go for glory

    West Brom v Chelsea (20:00 BST)

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer at The Hawthorns

    It is surely a question of when rather than if Chelsea win the title - and victory tonight at West Brom will finish the job.

    What a transformation it has been under Antonio Conte, who has taken a squad that was broken and ended languishing in 10th place at the end of last season to the brink of the title inside a year.

    West Brom will present tough opposition but Chelsea were in irrepressible form as Middlesbrough were swept aside at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

    Will tonight be the night?
