How Chelsea might line-up against West Ham

Chelsea will be looking to return to winning ways when the Blues welcome in-form West Ham United on Monday evening.  

After back-to-back narrow defeats against Everton and Wolves, Frank Lampard’s men will want to enter the Christmas week with a win, but they have to overcome a resilient West Ham who are just one point behind the Blues.

Chelsea fans can expect a handful of changes in the attack and mid as Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi join the squad but the lack of game time may force one or both to start on the bench against the Hammers who have lost only once in last six league games.

Summer signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz have received a lot of criticism recently and that may push Lampard to drop one of them.

Chelsea’s expected line-up: Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kovacic, Kante, Mount; Pulisic, Giroud, Werner
