West Ham United vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Chelsea will look to extend their 100% start to the season when they travel to face West Ham United.

West Ham United earned their first points of the campaign last weekend as they eased to a 3-1 win at Everton.

New signing Andriy Yarmolenko scored twice, with the impressive Marko Arnautovic also scoring.

Chelsea recovered from a goal down to beat Cardiff City 4-1, with Eden Hazard scoring a hat-trick.

Willian scored the fourth and was also the match winner in Europe on Thursday as they edged past PAOK.

Team news
Arnautovic is a doubt for the fixture having come off injured against Everton.

If the Austrian is fit enough to start, then they could name the same XI, with Jack Wilshere still injured.

Pedro was forced off late on in Greece and may not be risked with Willian returning to the XI.

Eden Hazard and David Luiz weren’t risked in mid-week, but both will start here.

Expected starting XI’s
West Ham United (4-3-3): Fabianski; Fredericks, Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku; Rice, Obiang, Noble; Yarmolenko, Arnautovic, Anderson
Chelsea (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso; Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic; Willian, Giroud, Hazard


Result: Draw (7/2 with Bet 365)

Correct Score: 1-1 (8/1 with Bet 365)

Anytime Goalscorer: Eden Hazard (Evens with Betfred)
