Chelsea have lost two of their last three games, succumbing to defeats first by Leeds and then by Southampton on Tuesday (September 30). They beat Leicester in the interim and will be looking to get back to winning ways against their London rivals.
West Ham, meanwhile, put in a strong second-half performance to secure a point against Spurs on Wednesday. It means they have got 4 points from the last 6 available, a good turnaround after they lost their opening three fixtures of the campaign.
Chelsea have finally secured the services of Wesley Fofana from Leicester and he is likely to feature at the weekend. The deal, worth up to £75 million in total, is just short of the world record fee for a defender. Fofana’s fellow summer arrival Raheem Sterling is starting to get goals, even when the team is struggling. However, Deadline Day arrival Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is unable to make his debut as he recovers from an injury sustained during a recent attack on his home.
Thomas Tuchel’s team tend to do well against West Ham at home. They have lost just one of the last 16 matches between the sides at Stamford Bridge. David Moyes’s men are struggling to score though. Tomas Soucek’s midweek equaliser was only their second goal in the Premier League this season.
Hammers record signing Lucas Paqueta made his debut in that game and is likely to play more minutes at the weekend. His new team have won three of their last six Premier League matches against Chelsea.
Can the Brazilian arrival help the Irons do this again and secure what would be a very impressive three points, or will the Blues get an important win? Find out by watching the Chelsea vs West Ham live stream.
