Predicted Chelsea Xl vs West Ham, Chelsea have a tough match in the Premier League tonight against a team in some pretty good form.

David Moyes’ West Ham are just one place and one point below Chelsea in the table this season, and they will certainly fancy their chances of taking three points tonight.

But Frank Lampard and his team must bounce back from two defeats in a row, and it will be a test of their characters on Monday night.

The Blues boss has some decisions to make, one of them could be forced. Reece James is a doubt at the moment due to a knee injury, so Cesar Azpilicueta could star over him at right back.

The game will probably come too soon for Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech to start, but Hudson-Odoi at least has a good chance of making the bench.

I believe Mateo Kovacic could come in for Kai Havertz after a couple of shaky performances, and perhaps Tammy Abraham gets the nod in attack again.

Predicted Xl –

(4-3-3): Mendy, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell. Kante, Mount, Kovacic. Werner, Pulisic, Abraham.
