Chelsea will host West Ham United at the Stamford Bridge for another London Derby. Thomas Tuchel’s men will be hoping to grab a win this time as they had lost 3-2 to the Hammers in the reverse fixture.

The Blues come into the match at the back of a disappointing 4-2 loss against Arsenal. Thomas Tuchel will probably opt for the 3-4-2-1 formation with a couple of tweaks from the previous game to revitalise his team and bounce back.

Team News

Christensen was taken off with a minor setback against Arsenal after the first half, and the defender remains doubtful to start.

Rudiger was left out of the squad to face Arsenal due to a groin injury. Tuchel has since confirmed that he doesn’t expect the Germany international to feature against West Ham. The Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic will also be seen on the bench after picking up an ankle problem.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell are likely to miss out on the rest of the season with injury woes, according to a report by football.london.
