[Teams] Chelsea vs West Ham: Confirmed Line-Ups

[Teams] Chelsea vs West Ham: Confirmed Line-Ups

West Ham are going to have to take on Chelsea in the Premier League without Manuel Lanzini, according to an Insider.

The Blues were pegged back by Javier Hernandez after Cesar Azpilicueta handed them a first-half lead, in what was the first league game Chelsea had failed to win under Conte when leading at half-time.

David Moyes' side was then presented with a good opportunity when Arthur Masuaku picked out Marko Arnautovic with an inch-perfect ball over the top on 14 minutes but after showing good control, the Austrian forward saw his effort blocked by Gary Cahill from seven yards out.

The draw leaves Chelsea in real danger of missing out on Champions League football for next season, with the champions 10 points behind Tottenham in fourth.

The former England midfielder, who played for Chelsea for six years in the 1970s and had several spells as the club's assistant coach, was remembered by fans who laid flowers outside the stadium.

The half ended with the home side leading by a single goal.

"It's a big game but I do fancy Chelsea".

"Chich" has come back from the other side of the world last week.

Chelsea were put to the sword by Dele Alli and co. last weekend and will want to put in a more controlled display.

Victor Moses, left unmarked by West Ham's ponderous defence, scooped a cross towards Morata and he headed down to Azpilicueta, who controlled before poking a soft shot past Hart for his first goal since October. "They created a lot but we stood strong".

"They tell me last season he had very few injuries, but he picked up one at the end of the season with his hamstring and he's never really recovered from that".

The Hammers have become something of a bogey side for Chelsea in recent years but this match could serve to re-address the balance back in favour of the Blues.

Antonio Conte's first game in charge of Chelsea was a 2-1 home win against West Ham in August 2016.
