Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez is fighting against history if he must survive the sack after their clash with West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

West Brom, who visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday, have claimed the scalp of Chelsea's previous two managers. A year ago, a Gareth McAuley goal sealed a 1-0 win at the Hawthorns, and the sack for Andre Villas-Boas.

Eight months on, a 2-1 defeat at the same venue ended Roberto Di Matteo's reign.
