Tony Pulis has confirmed today in his press conference that both Jonas Olsson and Victor Anichebe should be available for selection against Chelsea. Albion travel to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. Albion currently sit 3 points ahead of Chelsea who have had a poor season so far.

Olsson has made 15 appearances for Albion this season but has missed the last two games with an injury picked up against Newcastle in the 1-0 home win. Evans and McAuley are proving to be a good centre back pairing so it could be difficult for the Sweedish international to get back into the side.
Victor Anichebe also picked up an injury against Newcastle. He’s only appeared for Albion 3 times this season but impressed during his rare start against Newcastle.
Pulis went on to speak about how tough the game against Chelsea will be;
