West Ham United will face Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday.

The West Ham United players were training on Thursday ahead of this weekend’s Premier League game against Chelsea at home.

West Ham will head into the encounter at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday afternoon on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park.

The Hammers are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from nine matches, just four points behind leaders City.

Slaven Bilic’s side were training on Thursday, and among the players looking very intense during the session was Michail Antonio.

The winger has not got much playing time for West Ham so far this season, having joined the London club from Championship side Nottingham Forest in the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old, though, will hope to play some part against Chelsea, as will former Liverpool and Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll, who was also training on Thursday.
