Chelsea Vs West Ham – TOP FOUR BATTLE | Team news and Expected Line-up

Published

on

Fifth-placed West Ham United take on fourth-placed Chelsea in Premier League action at the London Stadium on Saturday.

Both sides are level on points in the league standings and will aim to grab the all-important three points as a place in the top four is at stake.

West Ham United’s chase for a top-four finish was halted last week when they fell to a disappointing defeat to struggling Newcastle United.

The Hammers fought back from two goals down to draw level in the 80th minute, but Joseph Willock scored two minutes later to give the Magpies a 3-2 win.

David Moyes’ side have now dropped to fifth in the league standings, two points ahead of Tottenham and level on points with fourth-placed Chelsea.


Meanwhile, Chelsea failed to capitalize on the slip-up by their London rivals as they were held to a goalless draw by Brighton and Hove Albion on Tuesday.

In an utterly toothless display, the Blues struggled to hit their stride and ultimately posed no attacking threat throughout the game.
