Tony Pulis is seemingly facing a pivotal and potentially decisive period of his tenure as West Brom manager.

After a run of nine Premier League games without a win, and just two wins from his last 21 games dating back to last season, fans are turning against him in their masses.

The decision-makers at the Hawthorns are also mulling a managerial change should form continue to nose-dive and the Baggies get dragged into a relegation scrap, but things don’t get any easier for Pulis.

Next up is the visit of reigning Premier League champions Chelsea who are looking to keep the pace in the race to secure Champions League qualification.

Pulis will be without a number of key players for this weekend’s clash – here is our predicted XI.
