est Ham host Chelsea in what looks a fiery London derby at lunchtime on Saturday.
David Moyes’ side are showing signs of improvement of late and claimed a creditable draw away at Newcastle as they build on a promising few weeks. In recent seasons, the London Stadium has proven a difficult place to go for the Premier League’s leading teams and perhaps this is a good time to play the Blues.
Graham Potter, after all, is still trying to work out what his best team looks like. A £300m spending spree in January naturally increases the pressure and whilefew managers would pass such backing up, the Chelsea boss has an awful lot to work out after so many new recruits.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.

West Ham vs Chelsea team news
Danny Ings made a cameo away at Newcastle and looks set to feature once more. Potentially joining him in attack is Gianluca Scamacca, who also returned to training after a layoff. Elsewhere, the team largely picks itself with Angelo Ogbonna expected to partner Nayef Aguerd in defence with Kurt Zouma still injured.
For Chelsea, all of Raheem Sterling, Ben Chilwell and Reece James played against Fulham and should be available once more. January signing Mykhailo Mudryk came off with a heavy cold and it remains to be seen whether he can feature.
West Ham vs Chelsea prediction
It is of course difficult to know how Chelsea will line up with so many options available. Seemingly struggling for coherency, West Ham should have enough to take something.
