West Ham United will entertain Chelsea at the London Stadium this Sunday as both sides look to secure a win in the London derby. The Hammers managed to secure a 1-1 draw away at Bournemouth. Similarly, the Blues were held to a 1-1 draw as well by Liverpool earlier this month. Hence, we can expect the two London clubs to be hungry for the three points this weekend.

West Ham United Vs Chelsea: Talking Tactics

David Moyes will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and could ask his men to move the ball and cause some problems for the Chelsea defenders on the counter.

Mauricio Pochettino will set his men up in a 4-2-3-1 formation as well and might instruct his players to dominate the ball and engineer enough clear-cut chances to win this London derby.

Key Men

West Ham United

The defensive performance of Kurt Zouma and Nayef Aguerd could go a long way in determining the fate of this contest.

Michail Antonio will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Hammers up top.


Both Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo need to move the ball well if Chelsea are to create enough chances to win this game.

Both Ben Chilwell and Raheem Sterling will be asked to get in behind the opponent’s backline at every chance they get.
