Chelsea vs West Ham United: Premier League Match Preview, Predicted Line-ups and Dream11 Predictions

Chelsea vs West Ham is the upcoming Premier League Match as Chelsea try and hold on to the third while West Ham United keep the pressure for a top 4 finish.

Chelsea vs West Ham United: Match Preview:

Thomas Tuchel's side will be hoping this one is a more enjoyable experience though, after they were beaten 4-2 by Arsenal in midweek as the Blues produced an incredibly poor performance.

While a top-four spot looks all-but secured, Chelsea will not want to let their league season peter out ahead of an FA Cup final next month.

For West Ham, they must also try and keep their focus on Premier League affairs. David Moyes and his team host Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday, in the first-leg of the Europa League semi-final clash.

Team News:

Chelsea:

Chelsea will again be missing Mateo Kovacic, Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi this weekend, while Antonio Rudiger is also unavailable due to a groin problem.

Andreas Christensen appears to be fit despite picking up a knock against Arsenal, but the Denmark international could drop to the bench, with Tuchel is expected to shuffle his pack for this match.

Thiago Silva and Trevor Chalobah could both come into the back four, while there are also expected to be returns for Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Jorginho, with Romelu Lukaku set to drop out, having again found it difficult to make his mark against Arsenal on Wednesday.

West Ham United:

As for West Ham, Issa Diop and Kurt Zouma have recently joined fellow centre-back Angelo Ogbonna on the sidelines, handing Moyes a huge problem when it comes to picking a back two this weekend.

Declan Rice could ultimately be dropped back into the middle of the defence to play alongside Craig Dawson, with Pablo Fornals and Manuel Lanzini playing alongside Tomas Soucek in midfield.
