Chelsea welcome fellow top four hopefuls West Ham United to Stamford Bridge in the derby showdown on Sunday in the English capital.
Thomas Tuchel’s men were handed an upsetting 4-2 defeat last time around against North London giants Arsenal with the Blues looking for a swift return to winning ways.

Edouard Mendy should be poised to retain his berth between the sticks for the home side Chelsea with Thomas Tuchel expected to ring in changes elsewhere on the team sheet.
At the back, Antonio Rudiger should find his way back into the first XI after sitting out the Arsenal clash with a minor injury niggle.
In the heart of the midfield, Jorginho is expected to partner N’Golo Kante with Reece James and Marcos Alonso slotting in the wing-back roles.
Timo Werner and Kai Havertz should both be included in the attacking lineup for Chelsea with Mason Mount joining the German duo in the final third.
