West Ham v Chelsea predicted lineups and match preview

West Ham take on Chelsea at Upton Park this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 24th October 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Boleyn Ground, London

Odds: West Ham 3/1, Draw 11/5, Chelsea Evens

West Ham United will be hoping to knock off another of the so-called 'big guns' of the Premier League when they take on Chelsea this weekend.

The Hammers have already beaten Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City already this season, though those victories came away from home - and this weekend they face a stern challenge at Upton Park.

Chelsea arrive having endured an inauspicious start to the season, and Jose Mourinho's side need something to get their season going, though last weekend's 2-0 home win over Aston Villa was a step in the right direction.

The Blues are without the injured Pedro, Loic Remy and Branislav Ivanovic, though Eden Hazard could be handed a return to the side in Pedro's absence.

For Slaven Bilic's Hammers, they are without centre back Winston Reid through injury, whilst loan winger Victor Moses is ineligible to play against his parent club.

That could mean a place for Enner Valencia following the Ecuadorian's return from injury, with his pace able to replace what Moses brings to the table for West Ham.
