Defensive duo fit to face Albion
Petr Cech and Alex are fit for the first game of Chelsea's Premier League title defence at home to West Brom on Saturday (kick-off 5.30pm). The duo have both overcome calf injuries in time to take on Albion at Stamford Bridge. Full-back Jose Bosingwa is out with a knee injury while the Blues will give a late fitness test to Frank Lampard, who picked up an ankle knock while on England duty in midweek. Didier Drogba (groin) will also be fit to take on the Baggies after he had to settle for a place on the substitutes' bench in last week's Community Shield. Chelsea (from): Cech, Hilario, Turnbull, A Cole, Kalou, Drogba, Terry, Alex, Malouda, Lampard, Essien, Mikel, Benayoun, Anelka, Zhirkov, Kakuta, Sturridge, Ferreira, Bruma, Ivanovic.
