West Ham United
West Ham will again be without the services of Angelo Ogbonna due to a long-term knee problem, but the Hammers are hopeful that Aaron Cresswell will recover in time to feature.

Cresswell's return could relegate Vladimir Coufal to the bench, but there are unlikely to be any changes elsewhere, with Pablo Fornals, Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen again supporting Michail Antonio.

Nikola Vlasic, Arthur Masuaku and Manuel Lanzini are among the options for change, although it seems unlikely that Moyes will decide to shuffle his pack due to the importance of the match.
West Ham United possible starting lineup:
Fabianski; Johnson, Dawson, Zouma, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice; Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals; Antonio

As for Chelsea, Mateo Kovacic and Ben Chilwell will again definitely be absent, while Trevor Chalobah will miss out with the hamstring problem that he suffered against Watford.

N'Golo Kante is also still absent with a knee problem, but Reece James has been passed fit after missing out against the Hornets, and the England international should come back into the side.

There will be a number of changes from the side that started on Wednesday, with Thiago Silva, Romelu Lukaku and Jorginho among those expected to come into the starting XI.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek might continue in central midfield, though, with Saul Niguez struggling to impress this season, and Kovacic and Kante both on the sidelines.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; James, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Alonso; Mount, Lukaku, Havertz

Prediction: West Ham United 1-1 Chelsea
