West Ham starting line-up and substitutes:

The Blues are in fine form, despite losing last time out to Manchester City.

 

Meanwhile, the Hammers are having an absolutely torrid time.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men have taken just two points from their last seven Premier League games, and they sit in 17th spot in the table.

The last thing that West Ham would have wanted is a trip to Chelsea, but that is what they have to deal with today.

The east London outfit will have to be at their very best, if they are to take anything away from Stamford Bridge.

History is not on West Ham’s side, however. They have not won away at Chelsea since September 2002.

And how Pellegrini could do with that kind of result today.

With tough games against Wolves and Arsenal to come, a defeat at Chelsea today could be the beginning of the end of the Chilean’s reign at West Ham.
