It’s a MATCHDAY It’s definitely going to be a thrilling week start for the Blues!
Chelsea vs West Ham
20:00 (UK time)
Venue: Stamford Bridge
Referee: Kavanagh C.
A look at the squad Frank Lampard will have to pick from when Chelsea welcome London rivals West Ham United to Stamford Bridge on Monday evening. Here is the squad in full, including the two injury doubts.
Goalkeepers : Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Willy Caballero, Karlo Ziger.
Defenders : Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Andres Christensen, Kurt Zouma, Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta, Fikayo Tomori, Emerson Palmieri, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva.
Midfielders : Hakim Ziyech (doubt), Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Billy Gilmour, Kai Havertz, Faustino Anjorin.
Forwards : Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud, Callum Hudson-Odoi (doubt).
A win takes us up to 4th and a loss leaves us in a position which will raise some difficult questions about the players and the management.
What are your score predictions for this game?
We have Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi on doubt. We however, expect some rotations. Timo Werner has done a good job of playing off the left-wing and he’s expected to maintain on his spot on the flank. Christian Pulisic is also expected to keep his spot on the flank. Above is our 4-3-3 predicted line-up.
Game Prediction: West Ham are a sound offensive side but would crumble to well organized attacking teams that can soak their attacks. Chelsea defend well as a team and are lethal going forward. We predict an emphatic 3-0 win in favor of Chelsea. What say you Blues? #EPL #EVECHE
