Chelsea will lock horns with West Ham United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, hoping to pick up a positive result on their home turf. The hosts will be coming into the match on the back of a shambolic 2-1 defeat to Southampton, whereas the visitors recorded a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur.

David Moyes will probably opt for his usual 4-2-3-1 formation against Chelsea; however, he is expected to make a couple of changes from the last game for the upcoming away encounter as Lucas Paqueta looks likely to make his debut this weekend.

Defence 

Lukasz Fabianski will operate in between the sticks for the away side. The Polish international will hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.

Kurt Zouma will form the customary centre-half partnership with Thilo Kehrer at the heart of West Ham’s backline.  

Aaron Cresswell should be a starter at the left wing-back spot, whereas Vladimir Coufal will start on the other flank as the right wing-back. Up against the Blues, the full-backs will be expected to stay compact defensively.

Midfield 

Tomas Soucek will feature alongside Declan Rice in the holding midfield position, with the latter being assigned with more of a defensive role to shield the away side’s back-four. 

New signing Lucas Paqueta will slot in the attacking midfield position to complete the midfield trio. The Brazil international will be determined to engineer some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the frontmen.  

Pablo Fornals will have to settle for a place on the bench but might come in the latter stages of the game if needed. 

Attack 

Said Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen are expected to take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing, respectively.

Michail Antonio is expected to lead the line for the visitors against Thomas Tuchel’s men this weekend. The Englishman will hope to make the most of his chances when he faces off against the Chelsea defence that has conceded eight goals in their last four league matches.
