West Ham United VS Chelsea
Saturday (09/12/2017)
13:30 (WAT)
West Ham face another daunting test with the visit of Chelsea as David Moyes' search for a first win as manager continues.

The Hammers were downed by another late show from Manchester City last time out, impressing despite losing 2-1 at the Premier League pace-setters.

Chelsea, meanwhile, came from behind to beat Newcastle United with Eden Hazard adding two more to his goal tally for the season.

Cesar Azpilicueta says Chelsea must beat West Ham to capitalise on points dropped by rivals in Sunday's Manchester derby.
 
Champions Chelsea, who are 11 points behind leaders Manchester City, could go level with second-placed Manchester United with a win at West Ham's London Stadium in the lunchtime kickoff.
 
"The two (Manchester) teams can't both take three points, so every time you get an opportunity to get close, you have to take it," Azpilicueta told Sky Sports.
 
"We have to be intelligent to look at ourselves and then we'll see how the opponents will react.".


Team news
Cheikhou Kouyate and Michail Antonio are doubts for the visit of Chelsea on Saturday, forcing David Moyes to once again shuffle his deck.

The pair started the narrow loss to Manchester City last weekend and could miss the London derby, meaning Marko Arnautovic could come in with Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez sidelined.

Antonio Conte has no fresh injury concerns, with David Luiz still sidelined with a knee injury.

Predicted line-ups
West Ham starting XI: Adrian; Rice, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Zabaleta, Kouyate, Fernandes, Obiang, Masuaku; Lanzini; Antonio

Chelsea starting XI: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Moses, Fabregas, Kante, Drinkwater, Alonso; Hazard, Morata
