After criticising his own fans for their protests against him, the manager watched the Blues create more than 20 chances on goal, although the home side converted just one.
That came in the first half when Demba Ba slotted in a cross from Oscar, although the ball was guided by Brazillian David Luiz in to his path.
Juan Mata and Oscar also went close for Chelsea, who moved back into third position.
Oscar, arguably the man of the match, had a header and two shots saved by Ben Foster, and a strike blocked by Jonas Olsson.
The Baggies’ best efforts came late in the game when Petr Cech saved substitute Peter Odemwingie’s powerful strike then produced a better save to prevent Azpilicueta from heading into his own net.
