The early Premier League kick off this Saturday is West Ham vs Chelsea and it should be a thriller as these two teams in desperate need of points go head to head.

Both sides have high hopes for this season, but West Ham, currently 17th and Chelsea ninth, need a win to get back into the European spots.

As with anything at stake in terms of points, this is a London derby and the battle between these two clubs has been heating up for years.

West Ham vs Chelsea Team News

West Ham don’t actually have as many personnel concerns as they’ve had at other stages of the season, so David Moyes should be able to name a strong line-up.

Chelsea, though, still have injuries to key players such as Edouard Mendy, N’Golo Kante, Wesley Fofana and Christian Pulisic.

West Ham’s predicted line-up (3-4-2-1):

Lukasz Fabianski; Benjamin Johnson, Angelo Ogbonna, Nayef Aguerd; Vladimir Coufal, Lucas Paqueta, Declan Rice, Emerson Palmieri; Jarrod Bowen, Said Benrahma; Michail Antonio.

Chelsea’s predicted line-up (4-3-3):

Kepa Arrizabalaga; Reece James, Thiago Silva, Benoit Badiashile, Marc Cucurella; Conor Gallagher, Enzo Fernandez, Mason Mount; Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Mykhaylo Mudryk.
